Mark Barron will reportedly give up his football number '24' for $50,000.

That is the price that new Tampa Bay defensive back Darrelle Revis offered to pay if the former Alabama star agreed to swap jersey numbers, according to Paul Lukas of Uni-Watch.com.

Barron wore number '24' in his rookie season with Tampa Bay. He will now be number '23'.

The Bucs acquired Revis from the New York Jets this off season and agreed to pay him $16 million per season.

Tampa Bay drafted Barron with the seventh pick of the 2012 draft out of Alabama. He's in the second year of a four-year deal worth $14.5 million.
