Earlier today, it was reported that the 49ers were among two or three teams interested in trading for Darrelle Revis of the Jets (more sources indicate that the Falcons and Lions as the other teams).
Now, several reports are claiming that the 49ers have little to no interest.
In fact, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports that the 49ers haven’t even discussed a deal with the Jets because they were looking into other trade matters.
Citing a high-ranking source, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen puts the 49ers interest level in Revis at “.001 on a scale of 1-10.”
Finally, Albert Breer of the NFL Network spoke to a 49ers source who said, “we’re not in it.”
However, there’s no denying that Revis is available.
“He’s gone,” a source told the New York Daily. “This is happening. They’re moving him. They can’t keep him. They’re rebuilding. They’re starting fresh.”
San Francisco has 15 picks in his upcoming draft thanks to the Alex Smith trade, and could use them to their advantage in pulling off a trade.
Revis is regarded by many as the top cornerback in the league, but missed all but two games of the 2012 season with a torn ACL and subsequent knee surgery.
The Jets will likely ask for at least a first round pick in exchange for Revis.
At the NFL the combine last month, the 49ers were checking in with agents on the cornerback market, thus confirming that they are indeed looking to upgrade their secondary.
