The Insider: Revis traded to Bucs; Ostrander medalist
The New York Jets have traded star cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for this year’s No. 13 overall draft pick and another selection next year.
The Buccaneers announced the deal on the team’s Twitter page Sunday, saying Revis agreed to a new six-year deal. The Jets will also receive a conditional draft pick, either a third- or fourth-rounder next year.
Revis arrived in Tampa on Sunday to take a physical with the Buccaneers, who wanted to check out his surgically repaired left knee before agreeing to the deal with the Jets.
Trade rumors have been swirling for months involving Revis, with the Buccaneers thought all along to be the most serious suitor.
