One of the more surprising pieces of NFL news on Monday was word that the Tampa Bay Bucs would likely be parting ways with Darrelle Revis. Given that Revis is a high profile name that all football fans have heard of, the next step was to obviously wonder if Your Favorite Team would be interested in his services.

Evan Silva of RotoWorld writes that he thinks Philadelphia could be the best landing spot for Revis' services:

I think the Philadelphia Eagles make the most sense for Revis. They are an ascending, 2013 playoff team with below-average cornerback play, an aggressive GM in Howie Roseman, and over $20 million in cap availability. Philly defensive coordinator Billy Davis leans heavily in the blitz, a tactic far easier to execute with reliable back-end coverage. The Eagles haven't been active in free agency beyond re-signing players from within. They'd be wise to make an exception for NFL's top corner.

As we wrote in our Eagles countdown to free agency, one of their biggest needs is cornerback.

UPDATE: And then there's this from CSN's Geoff Mosher:

According to a report by ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Eagles are one of two teams to watch when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers cut ties with Darrelle Revis. On Monday night, Schefter had reported that Tampa would cut the All Pro cornerback by Wednesday if it couldn’t find a trade partner (see story).
