Reports: Aircraft carrying Darrelle Revis has landed in Tampa

Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has landed in Tampa, multiple media outlets reported on Sunday.

Also, we have an interesting nugget from Roy Cummings of the Tampa Tribune: Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano was to pick up Revis at the Tampa International Jet Center, a corporate-jet facility operating near Tampa International Airport.

“Right out of the Childress Playbook,” NFL Network’s Rich Eisen joked on Twitter.

In 2009, as Brett Favre joined the Vikings, then-Minnesota head coach Brad Childress picked up the quarterback from the airport in either a famous or infamous moment for such rides, depending upon your viewpoint.

The Buccaneers have received permission to give Revis a physical as Tampa Bay tries to complete a trade for the standout cornerback. The deal is agreed upon, with the physical the last step, ESPN reported Sunday.

UPDATE 4:06 p.m. ET: NFL Network’s Jeff Darlington reports Revis is now at the Buccaneers’ facilities.

  1. you better win it all this year tampa because you won’t have him next year when he holds out for a new contract no matter how much guaranteed money you give him in his signing bonus. you could give him 30 million to sign with a yearly salary of 5 million but the min. someone gets paid 6 million a year he will hold out till he gets 7.

  2. What’s he having for lunch?

    Please let us know, so we can then start moving on and looking forward to getting back to talking about the Redskins name “issue”here.

  3. It’s a done deal I’d they stopped off at the Columbia restaurant in Ybor City and had a Cuban sandwich and a bowl black bean soup.

  4. Mark my words that 4 years from now when the Bucs are renegotiating his contract for the 3rd time,they will be sorry they wasted time on Meavis…

  5. This is a match perfect for the rest of the South. With Greg’s attitude and Revis’ me first. The honeymoon won’t last long.

  6. What a waste of time – how many articles does pft have on this right now? He’s not all that and he will prove it this season.

  7. Worst pass defense a year ago, in a division with three other high-power elite passing offenses, adds the best Corner in the game today.

    If Revis is healthy, this is a no-brainer, blockbuster addition. The NFC South just became a top tier division.

  8. Can disgruntled Jet fans let me know why the Bucs should expect Revis to hold out year after year?

    How many times did he hold out during his Jets tenure? Am I wrong in believing that his current Jets deal prevented a holdout unless he wanted 3 extra years for chump change?

  9. As a Buc fan, I’m stoked. I think about what ATL gave up for Julio and now we have someone to cover him. Sure it’s a risk but look at the risk the Saints took on Drew Brees, the guy we play twice each year. The Dom has now made 2 big moves to shore up his secondary. This team has definitely taken a big step forward, but everything hinges on Freeman’s consistency.

    Woody did the right thing!
    He wasn’t happy Revis held out in his rookie contract and that probaly caused his hamstring injury.
    He wasn’t going to pay him elite QB money, so………….
    Why are Jets fans disgruntled??
