After months and months and months of speculation on where the Jets unwanted CB was going to land, Darrell Revis has been traded to Tampa Bay in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this year's draft and another selection next year.
"We're thrilled. It's rare that you get a chance to add a player of this caliber to your football team. That's what motivated us," general manager Mark Dominik said, adding he would withhold further comment until a Monday news conference at the team's training facility.
The new Buc has agreed to a six-year,$96 million dollar deal with no guaranteed money, but does include $1.5 million annual bonus, now making him one of the highest paid defensive players.
"I been sitting around for the last hour trying to figure out what to say to the Jet Nation & I came up with this," Revis wrote on Twitter. "The six years I played for the New York Jets were unbelievable. I put my body on the line everyday & did everything could to help the team win. I experienced a lot & & learned a lot. The memories I had in New York I will keep dearly to my heart. I want to thank all the jets fans for making me feel welcome."
