Revis dealt to Bucs

 

Revis Island is relocating to Tampa Bay. The New York Jets have traded star cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Buccaneers for this year’s No. 13 overall draft pick and a conditional selection next year. The Buccaneers said Revis agreed to a new six-year contract Sunday. His agents, Neil Schwartz and Jon Feinsod, confirmed the deal is worth $96 million, with no guaranteed money, but makes him one of the highest-paid defensive players in the NFL. It includes $1.5 million annually in both roster and workout bonuses. The Jets will receive a fourth-round pick next year that will become a third-rounder if Revis is on the Bucs’ roster on the third day of the 2014 league year. Revis arrived in Tampa on Sunday to take a physical with the Bucs, who wanted to check out his surgically repaired left knee. He passed the physical and then agreed to contract terms. – AP
