Darrelle Revis is just hours away from being released or traded by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

According to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora, Revis would love to be a New England Patriot. The New York Daily News reported earlier on Tuesday that Revis would love to be a New York Jet again.

While Revis is not likely to return to the Jets, it is likely that he could sign or be traded to the Patriots. The Patriots are now looking for a lock-down corner after Aqib Talib signed a massive deal with the Denver Broncos.

The Buccaneers are continuing to look for a trade partner for Revis. However, if Revis is not traded by Wednesday afternoon, he is expected to be released by the team.

Once he is released by the Buccaneers, he is expected to sign with the highest bidder. The Oakland Raiders have reportedly dropped out of the running to sign Revis.

The Buccaneers traded a first round pick to the New York Jets for Revis on April 12th, 2013, along with a future third round pick. And now, nearly a year later, the Bucs will be giving up on the 28-year-old.

Revis has played in 95 games in his NFL career with 344 tackles and 2.0 sacks. He also has a 108 pass defended and 21 interceptions with 5 forced fumbles and 6 fumble recoveries.
