Post Sources: Jets have agreement in principle to trade Darrelle
Quote:
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.

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.

“There’s a .001 chance this deal doesn’t happen, so I don’t want to say it’s done,” one source said. “There’s always a chance something could go wrong, but it’s unlikely.”
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.

As for the contract, the Bucs are well aware that Revis is seeking a deal worth in the range of $15 million to $16 million per year. Revis’ agents, Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, have told the Jets on multiple occasions that their client is seeking a deal in line with what players such as defensive end Mario Williams (six years, $96 million) and wide receivers Calvin Johnson (eight years, $150.5 million) and Larry Fitzgerald (eight years, $113 million) have received.

The Jets were in a bind for two reasons. First, owner Woody Johnson is not interested in paying Revis what he wants. Second, Revis can’t be franchised after the 2013 season, when he can opt out of the final two years of his contract.

Tampa Bay, which won a Super Bowl two years after making a similarly splashy trade to get Keyshawn Johnson from the Jets in 2000, have both the salary-cap space (the team is $28 million under the cap) and the experience with Schwartz and Feinsod. The Bucs signed wide receiver Vincent Jackson to a five-year, $55.5 million deal last season. Jackson is represented by Schwartz and Feinsod.
The teams have been working on the trade since the NFL scouting combine in February.


Speculation to the draft picks? 2nd and 4th? With a conditional pick in 2014? It will definitely be interesting to see what the Jets get for him.

Thinking it'll be #13 this year probably with a 4th and then a conditional 3rd or 4th next year.

I heard it definitely includes the 13th overall pick.

I was thinking something like a 2nd and 4th, + a conditional next year that could rise up to a first. Getting a first from the Bucs this year is a fleecing by the Jets, IMO. That's a lot of future talent to give up for Revis, esp. coming off of an injury.

It's one of those things where the Bucs were choosing from staying put and going for long-term success or winning RIGHT NOW, and they picked the latter. Their secondary was absolutely non-existent last year, and after adding Goldson AND Revis they made it a strength.

Sad thing is that the Lions don't decide to/can't stay put OR spend big and win now correctly.

#13 and a conditional 3 or 4 next year. In addition Revis agreed to a 6 year 96M deal. $16M a year no guaranteed money, so as PFT puts it basically a string of 1 year $16M deals.

That's a beautiful contract. They have no risk outside of losing the picks for nothing if Revis doesn't workout and if he does workout they can always restructure the deal, so they can reduce the cap hit if needed.

That's not too bad. The Bucs get to get him for a draft pick, no otherwise 'risk," and his injury history vs the potential bust of a draft pick is virtually a wash.

Just a random hypothetical situation; do you guys think the Jets would agree to give Revis to us for Pettigrew and a 2nd? They just lost their starting TE (Dustin Keller) and don't have any viable options.

Revis is getting 16 mil a year! How do even think about affording that?

IMO the deal that they got is a HELLUVA lot better than Pett and a 2nd. They can get Eifert + the other draft picks, and get him cheap for 5 years. Pett is going to be coming off of his rookie deal and want $$$.

IMO, if Pett has any trade value, it's as a 3rd to 5th round pick.

Well, the fact that he's likely no longer a Jet means that they can't trade Revis to anybody. And even if somehow the deal falls through and Revis remains a Jet, I don't see them doing that deal. A CB is far more valuable to a team than a TE. Pettigrew alone isn't worth a 4th rounder on the open market. He's just not that respected around the league.

to say pett is not that respected around the league is an understatement imo. he is not fast, doesnt play strong, nor is he a great locker room guy. i would love to include him in a draft day deal. sorry to go off topic butthe guy is definetely part of our problem.

TB is looking very strong all of a sudden and i hope to see goldson lay out roddy white numerous times
