Report: Jets, Bucs have Revis trade framework in place


The Buccaneers and Jets have come to an agreement on trade compensation for cornerback Darrelle Revis, Jason Cole of Yahoo! Sports reported Sunday.

It’s unknown what the Buccaneers would give up for Revis if a trade is indeed finalized, but Tampa Bay’s first-rounder (No. 13) has been speculated to be in play ever since the Bucs became the clear top suitor for the star cornerback.

Also, the Buccaneers and Revis have reached “basic” agreement on a contract if he joins Tampa, Cole reported. The 27-year-old Revis is entering the final year of his current deal.

Earlier Sunday, ESPN’s Adam Schefter first reported that the Jets had given the Bucs the go-ahead to give Revis a physical. Per multiple reports, the physical is expected to occur on Sunday.

Revis missed most of last season with an ACL tear, but he has been able to work out, and he is almost seven months removed from the injury.

UPDATE 11:07 a.m. ET: Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports the Buccaneers will surrender “multiple” draft picks for Revis if a deal can be finalized.

UPDATE 1:20 p.m. ET: Per Rich Cimini of ESPN New York, the Bucs will give up the No. 13 pick in a multi-pick package if Revis is traded.

    Unless it includes Mark Sanchez traded to the CFL the Jets will not be marketly better.

  3. Iknoweverything says: Apr 21, 2013 10:49 AM

    This is why the Bucs will always be pretenders and not contenders.
    Revis isn’t even the best CB in the game……Mr. Richard Sherman is.
    Why give up prized picks when you need MULTIPLE areas filled? He is coming off knee surgery which may or may not bring him back to 100%.

    He isn’t a playmake that is going to touch the ball 20 times a game.

    It doesn’t matter anyway, the Chiefs are going to dominate this draft and methodically move up and down while swindling other teams

  4. skoobyfl says: Apr 21, 2013 10:50 AM

    Bills will send Stevie his way in Tampa like usual, Stevie owns Revis’ Island.

  5. petedutcher says: Apr 21, 2013 10:50 AM

    That happened too fast for there not to be tampering.

  6. petedutcher says: Apr 21, 2013 10:53 AM

    All the Bucs will need is a DT and a LB to contend. Wright is serviceable and the Bucs can draft someone this year just in case.

  7. nyjets1017 says: Apr 21, 2013 10:57 AM

    Thank god this headache is out of NY.

  8. onermedboxer says: Apr 21, 2013 11:00 AM

    If the Bucs grab Revis, and then take maybe another cb in the draft (Webb, Mathieu), they might be able to make me forget the nightmare that was the Tampa Bay 2012 Secondary

  9. jetsfaninnj says: Apr 21, 2013 11:03 AM

    Great move for everyone. Bucs get the player they covet and the Jets get the flexibility to take a Guard and an OLB in the first round. Win/Win.

  10. glazerh8er says: Apr 21, 2013 11:03 AM

    People don’t realize we structure our contracts with guaranteed money for a couple years and no signing bonus with the money decreasing over the years of the contract (best in the business). So, if it blows up we cut the player after 2 years and no problem. Also, we have the room THIS year to pay him 20 million if we wanted, it really doesn’t matter because we aren’t going to blow our whole cap space this year anyway, we are still 2nd in the league in space after having a pretty blockbuster free agent year last year. Same will go with this. Local reports are also saying the multiple pick stuff isn’t certain yet. I LOVE this trade. There are probably 2 players in this draft that may have Revis value and we don’t know them yet.

  11. silverhornet says: Apr 21, 2013 11:05 AM

    Could see something like this:

    NYJ send Revis and 3.72

    TB sends 1.13, 4.112 and 6.181

  12. reasonableeaglefan says: Apr 21, 2013 11:06 AM

    Wow a top 15 pick plus other premium picks is a lot. The Harvin trade was for a early 20’s pick, big difference. Not sure if this is a good idea for a guy coming off an ACL with a history of wanting to renegotiate his contract

  13. packerswin96 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:11 AM

    The Bucs be crazy. Revis and all the trouble he causes are not worth a first round pick, much less multiple draft picks.

  14. classactcalvin81 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:13 AM

    So glad I’m not a Bucs fan rite now!! UGGHHH!!

  15. bradybbgoat says: Apr 21, 2013 11:16 AM

    The thing is the Jets were never going to resign him anyways. Better to have a package of picks than nothing.

  16. hopper15 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:16 AM

    Not a fan because they still need more pieces than one elite Corner to contend.

  17. themostlogicalofvoices says: Apr 21, 2013 11:18 AM

    Ted Thompson and the Green Bay Packers allow for this trade to happen. Revis did not fit the golden standard of their rule thus the Almighty Organization deem a trade to Tampa Bay to be allowable. When asked why TT allowed this trade he was quoted as saying “We are the Green Bay Packers. Our backup punters can play cornerback better than some of the inane fools other teams deem “all-pro”. Now carry on and leave me be.”

  18. bucalot31 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:19 AM

    i really don’t care what kind of “shut down” corner you have, if you don’t have the d-linemen up front to pressure the QB, any secondary will get picked apart. You give a Brees all day to throw he will shredd a defense to pieces, you give Matt Ryan all day to throw he will pick you apart. It starts up front, then work your way to the back. When tampa won it’s superbowl it did so on the strenght of its four down lineman, they got after the QB and didn’t allow him the time of day to throw the ball, in turn that allowed our secondary to florish. You can’t keep a corner out on an island, he will get burned all the time. I fear it will be another long season at the bottom.

  19. jtincher34 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:21 AM

    LOL, calling the Bucs “pretenders and not contenders” and ending your explanation on why that is with using “Chiefs” and “dominate” in the same sentence. Way to prove your point.

  20. bucdafukup says: Apr 21, 2013 11:21 AM

    How we didn’t give up too much….

  21. patriots123456 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:22 AM

    We will have to see what the Bucs give up…

    But I see this as a win for the “Circus” giving up that diva and his money demands for some excellent draft choices…Get Revis out of the locker room…

    He is a great player but has too much baggage…send him to Florida…

  22. bucdafukup says: Apr 21, 2013 11:23 AM

    Hope we didn’t give up too much…

  23. justafanofitall says: Apr 21, 2013 11:23 AM

    So much to give away when they need so much. Not even sure if he’ll be the same when he is 100% from surgery. What a gamble…..

  24. kgun80 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:24 AM

    I really don’t understand why the Bucs are giving up a first round pick for Revis.

  25. ballinmore says: Apr 21, 2013 11:27 AM

    This may top the Nnamdi signing. At least the Eagles didnt have to give up draft pics.

  26. raenray2 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:29 AM

    I’m a jets fan and was against this from day one. But after looking at everyone who has came back from acl surgery no corner back has ever came back at the level of play they were at before they get hurt. If we get olb mingk and we Austin in the first round then it was definitely worth it

  27. tpa43 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:30 AM

    So there is tampering?

  28. bucrightoff says: Apr 21, 2013 11:31 AM

    With this deal apparently just about done it has to be for the 1st this year, and if so I’m disappointed about that. The Jets should have had to accept no better than next years first with no leverage. Obviously this is as much about getting a huge star to fill the seats than it is the player himself.

  29. maltdawg says: Apr 21, 2013 11:32 AM

    Hopefully they are not giving up too much for him. Plus he is gonna hurt us in trying to sign our own free agents in the future. He is definitely better than any cb that would be on the board at 13 but moves like this are usually done when you are 1 or 2 players away. The Bucs are definitely not one of those teams. Eric Wright sucks, Ronde Barber is as old as a wizard and the rest of our corners are young and inexperienced. Bring back Donnie Abraham to play alongside him.

  30. seatownballers says: Apr 21, 2013 11:33 AM

    Bought time

  31. ckualii says: Apr 21, 2013 11:33 AM

    Please, enlighten us about their “multiple needs”.

  32. canetic says: Apr 21, 2013 11:34 AM

    This trade will somehow make both teams worse off, and I’m fine with that.

  33. gdeli says: Apr 21, 2013 11:37 AM

    are the jets trying to wreck the franchise by dumping revis and keping tebow? simply amazing! and ryan keeps shoving his foot in his mouth. what a blowhard

  34. junglegrowler says: Apr 21, 2013 11:38 AM

    Good job Jets, it’s time you moved on from this guy. You need team players, no matter how good one player is it’s about building a team.

  35. silverhornet says: Apr 21, 2013 11:44 AM

    JLC update, “multiple picks” might mean NOT #13.

  36. lrjets says: Apr 21, 2013 11:47 AM

    Woody did right this time!

    He does not want to pay almost elite QB money to a cornerback. He didn’t forget the problems Revis caused as good as Revis is.

    Revis has a clause in his contract forbidding him to ever be “franchised”.
    He could walk after 2013 with the Jets only getting a 3rd round compensatory pick.

    OK….Jets haters……carry on!

  37. dalyman3 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:48 AM

    Revis, Wright, Barron, Goldson, and Barber. That would be a pretty sick secondary.

  38. nobreak1269 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:48 AM

    Hear that? The circus is leaving New York and heading to Tampa! GO JETS!!

  39. beachsidejames says: Apr 21, 2013 11:56 AM

    Being a Jets player can screw with anybodys head. Fresh start in Tampa for Revis and getting away from N.Y. might just work for both. Tampa is a great city and the Buc’s are fun team.

  40. ncheelsboysfan says: Apr 21, 2013 11:56 AM

    I hope this works out for TB but honestly this looks like:
    1) Giving up draft picks they wdnt have to give if they wait a year
    2) Reavis is an royal pain and there is no guarantee he still wont be
    3) Reavis may or may not be able to play to his past ability and
    4) They are over paying even for a top corner given the current market and the fact that a shut corner really isn’t that.
    Why would TB do this deal – alot of risk for them IMHO.

  41. daknight93 says: Apr 21, 2013 11:59 AM

    The Jets got one major headache out the way by trading Revis which is a smart move in hopes to finding team-oriented players

  42. onermedboxer says: Apr 21, 2013 12:01 PM

    The real question: Who will wear no. 24? Barron or Revis?

  43. jetsfan67 says: Apr 21, 2013 12:12 PM

    What a huge move for the Jets. If we can get this year’s first and third round picks from the Buc’s it will be a steal for us. Can’ t believe any team would trade so much for a guy they can have after this season for no picks.

  44. tedmurph says: Apr 21, 2013 12:12 PM

    As a Pats fan, it’s nice to get him out of the division, not that the jets were a threat with or without him. Still, it’s good business for the jets to get what they can for him before he walks, esp since there seemed to be only one suitor. I don’t care how much $ TB has to spend or how good Revis is, they’re gonna pay way too much for a CB, and that’s before he holds out for a new contract in 2-3 yrs

  45. jcrileyesq says: Apr 21, 2013 12:27 PM

    TB should hold onto the pick and wait until next year… jets aren’t going to resign Revis and for TB to do a deal now they will have to break the bank anyway, so just wait a year and get austin or some front seven help in this year’s draft

  46. seatownballers says: Apr 21, 2013 12:28 PM

    Tampa’s d will be better, but its wondering if the jets can improve with those draft picks

  47. justintuckrule says: Apr 21, 2013 12:35 PM

    Be funny is if another team came into the picture and fake offered a modicum more than tb. If these two joke franchises took 4 months to trade when nobody else was in the picture I wonder what would happen if a third team popped in for fun. Giants should pay the jets back for taking down their Super Bowl walls

  48. thegonz13 says: Apr 21, 2013 12:44 PM

    About time this saga comes to an end

  49. followme2boston says: Apr 21, 2013 12:52 PM

    As a Bills fan all I can say is good.

  50. metrocritical says: Apr 21, 2013 12:54 PM

    With 40+ comments in, it’s still impossible to know if it’s a good deal without knowing the terms of the deal. Jets almost certainly win by eliminating an over valued, damaged, whiny,talented distraction in favor of possible upgrades at several positions. For Tampa, they’d better be bona fide Super Bowl contenders in the next few years and for the next few years or heads will roll and some of those heads will be the HC and GM.

  51. lostsok says: Apr 21, 2013 12:58 PM

    Now we get to see the fun of watching NY waste TWO first round draft picks! Always a hoot.

  52. coucheducation says: Apr 21, 2013 12:58 PM

    Probably good for both teams

  53. mj1818 says: Apr 21, 2013 1:01 PM

    I didn’t realize he is already 27.. A good three years left.

  54. dctb1 says: Apr 21, 2013 1:54 PM

    We still need to draft a young CB with upside, the best D lineman available when we first select in the draft and get a TE. I hope we bring Dallas Clark back for another year and pick up Freeney.

  55. alonestartexan says: Apr 21, 2013 2:00 PM

    The last Jet the Bucs gave up a lot for in a trade was Keyshawn Johnson… that worked out fairly well..

  56. JMClarkent says: Apr 21, 2013 2:04 PM

    So it looks like we found a landing spot for Geno Smith.

  57. kerryc21realty says: Apr 21, 2013 2:04 PM

    Not worth a number one pick, much less multiple picks

  58. anarchopurplism says: Apr 21, 2013 2:14 PM

    After the NEXT contract, Revis will be content with his deal.

    Yeah, Yeah

    Maybe, I think……

  59. mackcarrington says: Apr 21, 2013 2:22 PM

    I don’t know why fans of AFC east teams are happy about this. The Jets now will have extra draft picks and may steal someone those teams may covet.

  60. dlk47823 says: Apr 21, 2013 2:33 PM

    Idzik played his hand perfectly. Jets got maximum value for a player who tried to hold the team hostage. They’ve made several good value signings leading up to the trade. Now, comes some quality talent through the draft at a bargain price.

  61. bunjy96 says: Apr 21, 2013 4:51 PM

    Why do the Bucs always seem to get involved with over paying players and have a stable of “non dedicated team” players.

    This is the worst deal they will make in their history except for Bo Jackson.

    It must be the water in Tampa or unfortunately have ignorant owners as well as GM’s.

    Dominick will be looking for a new job in 2014.
