The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have made cornerback Darrelle Revis available via trade. According to Alex Marvez of Fox Sports the Buccaneers are pressing hard to trade him ahead of Thursday when he is due a $1.5 million roster bonus.

Revis joined the Buccaneers prior to last season but that was by the old regime. As a man to man corner he does not exactly fit into new head coach Lovie Smith’s system though the coach has said he would tweak his system.

Currently Revis is set to count $16 million against the cap for the Buccaneers.

Some view free agent CB Alterraun Verner as a potential Revis replacement.

UPDATE: Adam Schefter is reporting that the Buccaneers will release Revis…
