Report: Darrelle Revis agrees to six-year deal with Bucs for no guaranteed money
After being traded by the Jets, Darrelle Revis has agreed to terms with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on a six-year deal, the Bucs announced on Sunday.
Tampa Bay sent a 2013 first-round pick and a conditional 2014 3rd- or 4th-rounder to New York in exchange for the star cornerback.
ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the six-year contract will pay Revis $16 million each season for a total of $96 million, but none of that money is guaranteed even though he is recovering from a torn ACL.
It will make him the highest-paid cornerback in NFL history.
Revis' agents, Schwartz & Feinsod, first tweeted the news of the deal, before his marketing and business manager, John Geiger, tweeted a photo of Revis signing his contract.
Revis' former teammate, Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie, already expressed his disapproval of the move.
