Raiders, Browns 'strong players' for Darrelle Revis

Two teams have emerged as top contenders for Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, the Raiders and Browns are "strong players" looking to land the star cornerback in a trade. The Buccaneers were previously reported to be shopping Revis.

If they're unable to strike a deal, then the Bucs could release him, which would probably make Revis one of hte most sought-after players in the open market.

The Raiders have the NFL's largest salary cap at over $60 million to spend. Plus, they need secondary help badly. But the Browns already have Joe Haden in their defensive backfield. If they're able to land Revis, it could prop them up to having the best cornerback duo in the NFL.
