The Giants are among some of the teams that have inquired about Darrelle Revis (Rapoport, March 12).
Tampa Bay is expected to trade or release Revis by 4 p.m. on Wednesday (Schefter, March 11).

Jerry Reese always tells us that he “explores everything.” This is simply procedure for him. CB is still a glaring need this spring, why not make the call? Depending on the Giants’ long distance phone plan, the call probably cost pennies at the most.
As good as Revis is, he’s not really a fit for the Giants, especially financially. Reese will not surrender his top picks and then absorb a $16 million cap hit. Revis is probably headed for New England or a team that has a ton of cap room.
Going to a winning organization in not a top priority for Revis, who is, after all, a businessman first and a football player second. Just ask the Jets, who had to renegotiate his contract several times.
