Darrelle Revis Signs Extension With Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The trade between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New York Jets for Darrelle Revis is now finalized. Adam Schefter reported on twitter that Revis passed his physical and now the trade is complete.

The New York Jets will receive Tampa Bays #13 overall pick in this years draft, along with a condition 4th round pick in 2014, which can become a 3rd if Revis on the roster on third day of league year next March.

As for the new contract for Darrelle Revis, it makes him the highest paid defensive back in National Football League history but does not include any guaranteed money as reported by Adam Schefter.

The deal is a 6 year, $96 million dollar deal which will give him $16 million a season. As for the jersey number, I’m sure he will want to wear #24, which Mark Barron wears so I am pretty sure Revis will make him a deal that will convince Barron to switch numbers next season.

As for their new secondary, it looks like the following. Darrelle Revis as the left corner, Eric Wright as the right corner, Dashon Goldson at Free Safety and Mark Barron at Strong Safety. Remember, Ronde Barber could come back so he can be added to that list of names as soon as he makes a decision to retire or not.
