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.

The Patriots pulled out a tough win against the Bills to take an outright lead in the AFC East. The New England Patriots spoiled a banner day for the Buffalo Bills. As the Bills celebrated a new owner following Ralph Wilson's passing, Tom Brady turned in a stellar performance, throwing for 361 yards and four touchdown passes to help the Patriots pull away late for a 37-22 win. The game was a slugfest early. Neither offense was able to gain much mome ...

Sammy Watkins Starts Hot, but Buffalo Bills Rookie Has a Lot to Learn

Oct 7 2014 2:23pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Sammy Watkins has not yet proven to be worth the price the Buffalo Bills paid for him in the 2014 NFL draft, but thus far this season, watching him play is proving to be worth the price of admission. It's been an up-and-down start to Watkins' NFL career, with two stellar performances mixed in with three unspectacular ones. Even amid the inconsistency, Watkins is showing the kind of athletic ability and ball skills that simply can't be coached. Watkins makes the mind-blowing l ...

Bengals vs. Patriots 2014 final score: 3 things we learned from the Patriots' 43-17 win over the Bengals

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots ran over the Cincinnati Bengals, handing the Bengals their first loss while getting the Patriots' offense back on track. Sunday night is not historically the Bengals' best time. Neither are the playoffs. Cincinnati looked like a team that could make another early exit in January while the Patriots looked to have corrected their issues in a big 34-10 win for Ne ...

New England Patriots vs Kansas City Chiefs: Breaking Down New England's Gameplan

Sep 24 2014 8:48pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The New England Patriots aren't strangers to hostile environments, but Monday Night Football at Arrowhead Stadium will certainly be a test of a young team's mettle. A sea of red awaits, crashing down on the ears of the visiting like with a cacophony of sound. An offensive line that has struggled in the best of circumstances will not have it easy. Bill Belichick certainly will have a plan to mitigate the home-field advantage, but he has an intriguing Kansa ...

Patriots vs. Vikings: Twitter Reaction and Full Postgame Quotes

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 ...

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 i ...
