Buccaneers Acquire Revis From Jets For Draft Picks

The deal is done, and Revis Island is relocating to South Florida.

Darrelle Revis is now a member of the Tampa Bay Bucs, coming to the Bay area for this year’s No. 13 overall draft pick and another selection next year.

The Buccaneers made the official announcement on their Twitter page Sunday, stating Revis agreed to a new six-year contract that, according to a person familiar with the situation, is worth $96 million — but with no guaranteed money.

The front page of the Buccaneers’ official website posted a big picture of Revis in what appears to be a Tampa Bay jersey with the words: “Treasure Island. Darrelle Revis (CB). It’s a Bucs Life.”

The talks about the deal had been ongoing for awhile, and while the Jets balked at the amount the Bucs wanted to give them, they eventually gave in and gave up what many believe was their best player.
