On Sunday, Revis flew to Tampa Bay and underwent a physical with the Buccaneers that included a comprehensive checkup on his knee. Revis passed the physical, making the trade to the Bucs official, according to ESPN.
After much back-and-forth, the Jets traded Revis for draft picks from the Buccaneers. The Jets get the 13th overall pick in Thursday night’s draft as well as a conditional fourth-round pick in 2014 that could become a third-round pick if Revis is still on the Bucs’ roster on day three of the 2014 league year.
Revis will not be released before the 2013 season, meaning he is assured of making this season’s base salary, but his six-year, $96 million extension includes no guaranteed money. The contract makes him the highest-paid defensive back in NFL history.
Revis is just six months removed from ACL knee surgery and was cleared to run without restriction last Monday.
