Report: 49ers interested in trade for Jets' Darrelle Revis
January 25, 2013, 1:15 pm

Darrelle Revis played in just three games last season before tearing his ACL on Sept. 23.

The 49ers are "highly interested" in trading for New York Jets' cornerback Darrelle Revis, sources have told CBS Sports' Mike Freeman.

According to the report, the Jets are "strongly leaning" toward trading Revis and teams are beginning to saddle up their assets to acquire him -- demanding first- and second-round picks for the four-time Pro Bowler and 2009 AFC Defensive Player of the Year.

Other teams listed in the report as mutually interested in Revis include the Denver Broncos, Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills and New England Patriots, though the latter two are unlikely to happen because they are division rivals of the Jets.

Revis is coming off knee surgery in October after tearing his ACL in the third game of last season against Miami.
