Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 'stepping up their efforts' to trade star cornerback Darrell Revis, according to multiple sports sources as well as NBC Sports.

The 28-year-old cornerback was New York Jets' first-round pick in 2007 NFL Draft. He was named the AFC Defensive Player of the Year in 2009. His six interceptions in 2009 were tied for the fifth-most in the NFL.

The Bucs traded the Jets for Revis in April 2013 giving up a fourth-round pick. Revis was named the Cornerback of the Year by Sporting News in 2013. He also played in 2013 Pro-Bowl.

Now the team wants to dump Revis and his $16 million yearly salary. The cornerback is also due his $1.5 million roster bonus Thursday, according to NBC Sports.

If the team doesn't find an equal trade for him, they may cut Revis come Wednesday. According to NBC Sports, Denver Broncos and New England Patriots expressed interest in the star player.

The team has not announced if the Bucs' current quarterback Mike Glennon will be the team's starting QB this season.

The NFL year started March 10.
