Free agency begins this week, but the top player the Eagles should target won't technically be on the open market when the clock strikes 4 p.m. Tuesday. But he will be available, and he will make more of a difference than any of the hundreds of free agents looking for jobs in two days. Darrelle Revis is on the trading block, and the Eagles should do whatever is takes to acquire the New York Jets cornerback. They have the draft picks; the salary-cap space; and, most important, a glaring hole in the secondary that makes dealing for the all-pro a no-brainer.

DARRELLE REVIS has reportedly paid Buccaneers safety Mark Barron $50,000 for his jersey number. Revis, a cornerback, wore No. 24 for six seasons with the Jets. But after being traded to the Bucs in April he discovered that Barron already had that number. Paul Lukas of Uni- Watch.com, reported yesterday that Barron will wear No. 23 after accepting Revis' offer. "A well-placed source tells me that the amount Darrelle Revis paid to Mark Barron in order to get Barron to give up No. 24 was - get this - $50,000," Lukas wrote on his website.

Revis Island is relocating to Tampa Bay. The New York Jets have traded star cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Buccaneers for this year's No. 13 overall draft pick and another selection next year. The Bucs announced the deal Sunday, saying Revis agreed to a new six-year contract worth $96 million, but with no guaranteed money. It makes the 27-year-old one of the highest-paid defensive players in the NFL. The Jets also received a conditional fourth-round pick in next year's draft that will become a third-rounder if Revis is on the Bucs' roster on the third day of the 2014 league year.

TAMPA, Fla. - Revis Island is relocating to Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers took a bold move to fix the NFL's worst pass defense Sunday, acquiring star cornerback Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this year's draft and another selection next year. "We're thrilled. It's rare that you get a chance to add a player of this caliber to your football team. That's what motivated us," general manager Mark Dominik said, adding he would withhold further comment until a Monday news conference at the team's training facility.

Remember the panic a week ago, when distraught fans and media thought the new kickoff rule would eliminate successful returns? Hah! There were three returns for touchdowns in the first 14 games, including one of 108 yards by Randall "Corn" Cobb of the Packers on Thursday night, one of 103 by Percy Harvin of the Vikings on Sunday and one of 102 by the 49ers Teddy Ginn on Sunday. Ginn rubbed it 59 seconds later by taking a punt back 55 yards to score another TD!

I SEE WAYS for the Eagles to win this, but I'm not going to hang my hat on "desperation. " I've seen desperate teams lose plenty of times. My scenario would involve the defense really rising up and making it a low-scoring game, with some of the Jets' weapons banged up, while on offense, the Eagles actually block a running play as it was drawn up more than once or twice during the afternoon. It would not involve a harried Sam Bradford flinging jump balls in Darrelle Revis' direction, while being swarmed by pass rushers, which is what I suspect we're likely to see. I don't think the Eagles are a terrible team, despite their start, and I don't think the Jets are a great team, despite their start, but the Birds couldn't get out of their own way Sunday, offensively, and I guess I'll have to see them resolve some of those issues before I pick them to win on the road against a decent opponent.

Ever confident, DeSean Jackson is eager to be covered on Sunday by Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis. Jackson said this game is not about his matchup with Revis, but he's also not worried about how he stacks up against the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. "I don't think he can run with me, I don't think he's as fast as me," the Eagles receiver said. "It'll be a challenge. He's a great player. Nothing to take away from him. " Revis is a four-time Pro Bowler and former AFC defensive player of the year.

DARRELLE REVIS has a message for Jets fans. The Buccaneers cornerback, whose interception helped seal Tampa Bay's win over the Dolphins on Monday night, told Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post that he is constantly harassed by Jets fans. Revis, who played six seasons with the Jets, said it all started when New York wouldn't meet his contract demands and traded him to the Bucs in April. "They're still not over the fact that I'm not there no more, and they give me crap all the time on Twitter," Revis said.

DARRELLE REVIS walked into the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' weight room and received a round of applause from some of his new teammates. The three-time All-Pro may have left the New York Jets feeling underappreciated, but he's a welcome addition to a defense that ranked last in the NFL last season and is expected to help transform the Bucs into a playoff team. And, the well-paid Revis is confident he's up to the task. "We're going to make a lot of noise. Don't worry about that," the seventh-year pro said Monday.

Revis, Moss no BFFs There's no love lost between Randy Moss, the Minnesota Vikings new/old receiver, and New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis. Revis called Moss a "slouch" in an interview during the off-season. In a development as surprising as a Rex Ryan stop at the vending machine, the comment became a hot topic with New York fans and media before the Jets' 28-14, Week 2 win over Moss' New England Patriots. Thanks to the Wednesday trade that sent Moss from New England to Minnesota, the veteran wideout gets his rematch with the Jets in a Week 5 Monday Night Football showdown at New Meadowlands Stadium.

Nelson Agholor went up against the best, and although the best prevailed, the rookie Eagles wide receiver came away convinced that he could compete against a cornerback as talented as Darrelle Revis. "I learned that he's a man just like myself," Agholor said this week. "Obviously, he prepared for the game and I prepared and we went after it. He did a great job covering me and I tried to compete for four quarters and I think at the end of the day I held my own in terms of competition.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Of all the ways to complete the following phrase - "The Eagles won, but . . . " - the most obvious and troubling was, "Sam Bradford struggled again. " There will be harsher language used by some to describe the quarterback's performance in the Eagles' scrappy 24-17 win over the New York Jets on Sunday. Indeed, Bradford wasn't sharp. He was behind, short or over receivers all game. But he didn't commit a turnover against one of the best defenses in the NFL. Considering the Jets forced 10 in the first two weeks, and Eagles quarterbacks accounted for the most turnovers in the league last year, Bradford's sure handedness can't be overstated.

When the Eagles have the ball The problems with the Eagles' offense begin with the offensive line, and the bad news is the Jets have a better defensive front than what the Eagles saw in the first two weeks, even with Sheldon Richardson suspended. Temple alum Muhammad Wilkerson is one of the NFL's best young linemen and presents a major threat. First-round pick Leonard Williams will also create problems, and nose tackle Damon Harrison is a 350-pound presence in the middle of the Jets line.

Arizona Cardinals: The line has been hit with injuries and coordinator Todd Bowles is now the head coach of the Jets. Baltimore Ravens: Baltimore opens at Denver. Hey, Peyton. Watch your knees. Buffalo Bills: Jumping on the Rex Ryan bandwagon is never a bad thing, but please note that in his last two years as the Jets head coach, New York was 28th and 30th in standard fantasy DST scoring. This Bills unit, however, is better than those Jets teams were. Carolina Panthers: The Panthers were set to roll out a strong linebacking trio, but first-round pick Shaq Thompson has been slowed by a hamstring injury.

SUPER BOWL 49 figures to be an interesting mix of playmakers and personalities. The quarterbacks are clutch and the defenses are sprinkled with all-stars. You mad, bro? Not at this matchup. Seattle and New England are so even that anyone who thinks they can predict the winner with resounding certainty is either kidding themselves or in charge of inflating footballs. So put down those wings and save some room for these 50 morsels about Sunday's game. Should be another good one. 1 The Patriots now will have had five different primary running backs in their last five Super Bowl appearances.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Throughout the early stages of Eagles training camp, Jeremy Maclin has probably grown accustomed to seeing No. 24 lined up opposite him. But yesterday, instead of teammate Bradley Fletcher, it was a veteran clad in nautical blue and widely regarded as one of the NFL's best cornerbacks, if not the best. For nearly all of his reps during the 11-on-11 portion of the first of three scheduled joint practices with the Patriots, Maclin matched up against Darrelle Revis.

GREG SCHIANO is not a stupid man. I may be wrong about this, but I doubt the Bucs coach pulled his defensive coordinator, Bill Sheridan, aside this week and said, "You know what I think would be a swell idea Sunday, Bill? Having Darrelle Revis shadow Riley Cooper all over Raymond James Stadium. " No. Most, if not all, of the All-Pro cornerback's afternoon will be spent attached to the jock of the only wide receiver the Bucs really think they need to worry about - DeSean Jackson. Cooper, who has replaced out-for-the-season Jeremy Maclin as the Eagles' other starting wideout, has been targeted 18 times in five games and has yet to have more than 29 receiving yards in a game.
