Jets trade Revis to Bucs Dan Leberfeld

The Jets have traded CB Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The announcement was made by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“The New York Jets on Sunday traded Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the 13th overall pick in Thursday night’s draft and a conditional fourth-round pick in 2014 that could become a 3rd-round pick, per sources close to the Pro-Bowl cornerback,” wrote Schefter (with Rich Cimini) for ESPN.

“Revis signed a six-year, $96 million extension that includes no guaranteed money but makes him the highest paid defensive back in NFL history and one of the two highest paid defensive players along with Mario Williams, per sources. The new contract replaces his former contract.”
