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.

Why John Elway Deserves Failing Grade as Denver Broncos Executive

May 30 2014 12:02am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

New England Patriots v Houston Texans
Yes, you read the headline correctly. The great John Elway isn't the best front office executive in the NFL. At least not yet. The word "failure" is something with which most Broncos fans would never tag Elway. Elway has been part of Denver's front office since the 2011 season and once that season was complete, the team and general manager Brian Xanders parted ways. This gave Elway complete control o ...
