Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reports this morning that the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have come to terms on the trade that will send All Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis from the AFC East to the NFC South.
Jets and Bucs have already agreed on the trade, Revis and Bucs have agreed on basic contract, deal should be finalized by tonight or Mon AM— Jason Cole (@JasonColeYahoo) April 21, 2013
What the Jets would receive in return was not yet known, as well as what kind of contract the Buccaneers and Revis have negotiated.
The Buccaneers and Revis are expected to meet today, which will include Revis' physical.
As long as the Bucs pass Revis on the physical -- not expected to be a problem -- the deal should be done this afternoon. Maybe by 4.— Gary Myers (@garymyersNYDN) April 21, 2013
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.

[UPDATE - 1pm ET]: ESPN is reporting the deal is for "multiple draft picks including the No. 13 overall."
