Buccaneers' Darrelle Revis Pays Mark Barron $50K to Acquire No. 24

Jun 21 2013, 2:46am CDT | by

New Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis reportedly paid teammate Mark Barron $50,000 to acquire his No. 24 jersey.

New Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis reportedly paid his teammate Mark Barron $50,000 to acquire his No. 24 jersey. 

The New York Post's David Satriano referred to a Uni-watch.com report which narrated this development. This was apparently an attempt on Revis' part to wear the number he has worn throughout his career

ESPN says Barron, a safety, now wears No. 23. 

Because No. 24 is part of Revis' identity he can claim the $50,000 as a business expense in a tax deduction, Robert Raiola, an accountant with FMRTL in Cranford, N.J. whose clients include athletes, told ESPN.com's Darren Rovell. Baron, in turn, has to claim it as income. 

Revis wore No. 25 at the University of Pittsburgh but was No. 24 in his six seasons with the New York Jets

In his introductory press conference, Revis said he talked to Barron about acquiring No. 24, but didn't say any more than that, per Satriano who notes that players paying for uniform numbers is nothing new. In 2004, New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning bought an all-expenses paid trip to Florida for punter Jeff Feagles in order to acquire his No. 10 jersey. 

According to ESPN, Revis hasn't practiced with his new teammates as of June 20. However, he said he expects to be ready to play in Week 1 when Tampa Bay visits MetLife Stadium to play his former team, the Jets. 

He has been running and cutting on his surgically repaired knee this offseason as he works to return. 

Revis missed most of the 2012 NFL season with an ACL injury. He was traded to the Buccaneers in April - a week before the NFL Draft - for a six-year deal reportedly worth $96 million.

Patriots vs. Vikings: Twitter Reaction and Full Postgame Quotes

Sep 14 2014 4:30pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Minnesota Vikings have fallen to 1-1 after a sobering 30-7 loss to the New England Patriots. For as promising as the Vikings’ play was in Week 1, it was equally disappointing today. Adrian Peterson and his deactivation is the elephant in the room. After being indicted, booked and released from jail on charges of reckless or negligent injury to a child, the Vikings deactivated him from today’s game, per ESPN.com. Not having their ...

Patriots vs. Vikings 2014: Tom Brady trying to avoid first ever 0-2 start

Sep 14 2014 6:30am CDT | Source: SBNation

Tom Brady threw the ball far too much in Week 1, but he'll have to sling it early and often to help the Patriots avoid an 0-2 start against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 2. The New England Patriots haven't started a season with an 0-2 record since 2001, which means, of course, that they haven't done it since Tom Brady took over as the starting quarterback. After a shocking loss to the Miami Dolphins in Week 1, the Patriots are in danger of that rare 0-2 ...

Panthers vs. Buccaneers 2014: Picks and predictions for Week 1

Sep 5 2014 7:30am CDT | Source: SBNation

The NFC South's reigning division champ and bottom feeder meet up to kick off the NFL regular season. Last year after a 1-3 start, the Carolina Panthers rallied behind quarterback Cam Newton and head coach "Riverboat" Ron Rivera to end the season 12-4. That record proved the best in the NFC South, a division including the always dangerous New Orleans Saints. The year was less rewarding for the Tampa B ...

Even in Limited Participation, Rob Gronkowski Can Make Huge Impact in Week 1

Sep 2 2014 12:53pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Eight months after reconstructive surgery to repair his right ACL, New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski will play Week 1 against the Miami Dolphins. His role will be limited, but his impact on the field could be tremendous. There is no question that Gronkowski's presence tips the scales not only for the plays he can make, but the plays he can open up for his teammates. The greater question is, what do we expect fr ...

Why Kelvin Benjamin Is Worth at Least a Bench Spot on Your Fantasy Team

Aug 26 2014 2:35pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Times are tough for Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. Broken ribs and a patchwork group of wide receivers have last year's NFC Cinderella story looking like less of a competitive team and more of a fantasy liability. Ron Rivera announced Cam Newton has a hairline fracture in ribs. Newton won't play in preseason finale but team hopes he's ready for opener. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 24, 2014 Yet there's a bright spot on Carolina's offense that may have ...
