Revis to Bucs, pending physical
By Rich Cimini
Darrelle Revis was scheduled to arrive in Tampa at 2:30 p.m. Sunday to take a physical with the Bucs, the precursor to a blockbuster trade. As ESPN first reported early Sunday morning, the Jets gave written permission to Revis to take a physical and negotiate a contract with the Bucs, the result of a few days on negotiating.
If the Bucs are satisfied with Revis' surgically repaired knee, the trade will become official. The teams have agreed to the trade compensation, a source said, and the parameters of a long-term extension are in place. No word on the draft-pick compensation, although it does include the Bucs' first-round pick (13th overall). It means the Jets would own the ninth and 13th picks in Thursday's draft.
Stay tuned for more news developments.
