Jets Trade Darrelle Revis to Buccaneers

The Star-Ledger-US PRESSWIRE

The New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have spent the last month working on a trade to send cornerback Darrelle Revis to Tamp. Today, they finally finished the deal.

The New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers completed the trade today, sending multiple draft picks from Tampa to New York in exchange for All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis. The trade has been a month in the making, with both sides trying to work out the best deal for their franchise.

According to the Buccaneers' Twitter account, the deal gets Revis out of the AFC East for Tampa Bay's 13th overall pick in this week's NFL Draft as well as a 2014 4th round pick, which can escalate to a third rounder.

Revis and the Buccaneers also come to an agreement on a 6 year extension, keeping Revis in Tampa through 2018. The deal is worth $96 million, or an average of $16 million per year. However, the deal includes no guaranteed money for Revis. The Buccaneers get a former All-Pro cornerback coming off an ACL tear for nearly no risk, able to walk away from the deal at any point.

Ironically, the Miami Dolphins could still end up playing against Revis twice this year, depending on his health, even though he would be out of the division. Miami has the Buccaneers on both their preseason and regular season schedules this year. The two teams will meet in Week 10 on Monday Night Football.
