Revis won't make $16 million/yr as a free agent, but somebody will give him 10+…

That last tweet from Siciliano is a decent indication of what Revis might command on the open market, but regardless, the Bucs saved themselves a massive chunk of change by letting him go. This move was all but assured yesterday when the team made several big moves on the first day of free agency.
