Reports suggest that the New York Jets will not be able to finalise a trade deal to offload Darrelle Revis before the start of the 2013 NFL season.

It has been reported that Darrelle Revis is "not optimistic" that the New York Jets will finalise a trade deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before the start of the 2013 NFL season.

The cornerback, who is recovering from a knee ligament injury, has repeatedly been linked with a move away from the Jets during the off-season.

The Buccaneers interest in Revis is said to have stalled as they are unwilling to give up their first-round draft pick to the Jets.

However, NFL.com reports that the Jets are unlikely to meet the 27-year-old's contract demands, which could see him leave the team as a free agent next year.
