Jason Cole says deal is basically done Dan Leberfeld

Yahoo’s Jason Cole, who has very good sources in the Darrelle Revis’ camp, reports that the Revis-to-Tampa Bay deal is essentially done.

“The New York Jets have agreed in principle on a trade to send star cornerback Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay for undisclosed draft picks and the Buccaneers have agreed to a long-term contract that will make Revis one of the highest paid non-quarterbacks in the NFL, according to multiple sources,” wrote Cole.

“Revis boarded a private jet Sunday morning to fly to Tampa Bay for an official physical, although the Buccaneers’ medical staff is already aware of the results of an MRI exam Revis took April 15 when he returned to the Jets’ offseason program. Assuming the physical goes well, a final agreement could be reached by Sunday night or Monday morning.

“The Jets gave Revis permission to visit the Buccaneers on Sunday morning after reaching an agreement with Tampa Bay on the trade portion of the transaction.”
