Bucs the subject of lots of trade talk

TAMPA – The Buccaneers sure seem to be involved in a lot of trade talk these days.
Though no one with any authority has confirmed the reports the Bucs are said to be interested in trading for Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, Patriots quarterback Ryan Mallett and now former Seattle running back Leon Washington.
At least the latest rumor had a reliable source attached to it. Washington himself told the hosts of the “Opening Drive’’ on SiriusXM NFL Radio today that the Bucs had expressed interest in trading for him before Seattle cut him.
That seems rather curious, though. Why would the Seahawks cut a player that some team is interested in trading for? Even if the return is a seventh-round draft pick in 2015 it’s better than getting nothing in return.
Now, we do know through the tap into general manager Mark Dominik’s phone that the Bucs are interested in moving running back LeGarrette Blount, wide receiver Arrelious Benn and tackle Jamon Meredith.
Oddly, though, there have been no rumors circulated involving any of those players. Surely some will surface soon, though, because the rumor mill just can’t seem to churn out enough Bucs trade rumors.
Meanwhile, we’ll try to keep tabs on Washington. Now that he’s out there on the open market the Bucs can get him for the price of a new contract, which may not be as intriguing as trading for him but it does make a lot more sense.
