Another step in Darrelle Revis saga
By Pat Yasinskas
It looks as if there is continuing progress on the potential trade of cornerback Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets to Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Rich Cimini reports that the two teams already have agreed to what the compensation package for the Jets will be and it includes Tampa Bay’s first-round pick (No. 13 overall) this year.
That’s no surprise. The Jets wouldn’t have given Revis permission to fly to Tampa for a physical exam if they weren’t already satisfied with what the Bucs were offering.
It now is just a matter of Tampa Bay’s medical staff taking a look at the knee Revis injured six months ago. If Revis passes the physical, a deal should be completed later Sunday or Monday.
