    lol! This is great news. No more Revis island or an over exaggerated love affair for the Jets because they had Revis which is considered by some as the best corner in the league. Good riddance...

    Still not 100%, but as close as you can be without it being official. He is taking his physical later today, he is just being picked up now at the Tampa airport.

    I guess it's all good. They still have the best quarterback in the league. According to some...

    I'd rather they have kept him, and not gotten the draft picks. I doubt he'd be back next year, and that way they'd get only a comp pick for him in two years.

    Why are some people mad about this? Arguably the best defensive player in the nfl is gone from our most hated rival.

    Gee. I hope the pats don't trade Brady for a draft pick. That would be really bad for us cause it could mess up our draft plans and we'd be screwed if they drafted another tight end

    He's a very good corner..but the fact that all that attention he got from the media and rex ryan making him appear unbeatable ...teams like the fins were scared to challenge him..so that's why it's good he's gone.

    Considered by some as the best CB in the league? Is it even debatable? I would say he was in the conversation for top 3 CB of all time before the injury, we'll have to wait and see how that plays out though.

    I agree with Harry, Revis was a gamechanger and we should be really happy he's gone from the division. I doubt there is a player of Revis' caliber in the entire draft so the odds the Jets hit on one is remote to say the least.

    @AdamSchefter Trade official: Darrelle Revis passed physical. Bucs send 1st in 2013 and conditional 4th in 2014 that could be 3rd to Jets. More on ESPNews

    @AdamSchefter Darrelle signed six-year, $96 million deal with Bucs. This year he will make $16 million. Makes $16 million each year. Ripped up old deal

    Albert Breer is reporting that it is $96 million, with no guaranteed money. Revis has to earn it all. Breer also reporting it'll be a third round pick in 2014 if Revis is on the roster on the third day of the 2014 year. So yeah, its a third in 2014.

    Not really happy about this. I think it was asinine to pay a CB the money they were paying him and were going to have to pay him. He is the best CB in the NFL, but I'm not sure that's saying very much these days.

    Some early Gang green reaction once Jets fans learned the details of the trade,

    TheJetLife This is a pretty bad deal. Here we all were thinking we'd be getting 3+ picks in return...
    Thanks Mevi$, good riddance.

    sanchize I am pissed off. What the hell could not do better than a conditional 4th round pick next year. Could not even get a 3rd for this year. That is terrible. What were they waiting for? Why not trade him 3 months ago?

    NYJFan10 And we couldn't have signed him to that deal? Revis is right, the Jets aren't committed to winning.

    Murrell2878`1st and a '14 4th? WTF...

    talisaynon LOL no guaranteed and we only get a 1st and a 4th? LOLOLOL FIRE IDZIK

    Wait 1 hour and see how jets fans will be saying they got a steal and Revis wont be good anymore
    No corner in this years draft will be as good as Revis. God he wanted out of the Jets locker room so bad he took no guaranteed money!!

    haha to Jets exodus! No more Revis twice a year is an early gift to us! to bad we still face him once this year..

    I posted this in the 'LOL at the Jets' thread, but I'll say it again: Mike Wallace coming to the Fins and Darrelle Revis leaving the division? Yeah, I'm cool with that.

    and NO Gauranteed money. WOW. I thought only training camp bodies signed those kinda deals. :)

    Honestly, I don't see anyone winning in this trade. It's a wash. $16M/year is A LOT to be giving anyone not named the QB.

    The way I see it, the Jets just gave themselves the first big stepping stone to overhauling their roster. While the Bucs seem to have went to Rent-A-Center with bad credit and got the biggest flat screen for the largest possible payment in history.

    As far as I'm concerned, this truly is monopoly money.

    As for the Jets fans, your rebuild starts now. Don't worry about what you lost. This is only about what you gained; cap room and at least a first round pick. Draft correctly and you'll come out ahead. And, also, I hate your team. :)

    The Jets are making a big mistake. They already are not a very good team. Now, they lose their best player.

    You watch, the jets, who are all about making TV hoopla come draft time, are going to trade down, and get many picks. At least, that is what you should be thinking anyways, particularly in this draft and with non-conference teams with two first rd. picks along with SF and their 31/33

    Yep. People wanna down play how good revis was just because he played for the jets but I could argue he was as good at corner as any player the jets ever had at their respective position. It's a huge loss. The pick they got could easily turn into a bust. It might turn into a good player. I can almost guarantee it won't turn into near the player revis is

    There comes a point where a player holds him team hostage from being able to build successfully. While Revis was great and MIGHT return to form, he's not worth that kind of money. The game is changing. 1 shutdown corner is not enough in today's league. They'll just throw to the 3 or 4 other open targets on the field.

    Can Revis cover Gronk? Hernandez? Keller? WR2, WR3 and WR4 while also covering WR1?

    The landscape in our division and the NFL is changing. Revis is great. But he's not worth $16M to your defense. Especially when the positions you ask to cover the other receivers on the field are filled with cheap bodies to offset the money distribution.

    I'd also like to point out if we had made this deal, FinHeaven would be shut down right now by the sheer volume of rants. Anyone who thinks this was a great contract, imagine we just signed him.

    Good move by the Jets, top teams do not pay $16 million a year for a CB.

    GB wouldn't do it. Pitt wouldn't do it. Pats wouldn't do it. Giants wouldn't do it. Ravens wouldn't do it. It makes no sense.

    Fortunately - the Jets still have a long way to go to get back to solid ball.....

    1. Fire GM - done.
    2. Fire Ryan - not done.
    3. Fire Sparano - done.
    4. Trade Revis - done.
    5. Cut Tebow - not done.
    6. Trade/Cut Sanchez - not done.
    7. Draft new QB - not done.
    8. Draft WR, TE, LB's, etc....

    The Jets got the going rate for a cornerback...a cupla picks.

    Lousy value but pass defense was hardly the Jets' overriding weakness, even without Revis for much of the season. They were second in the league in completion percentage at 53.8% and 6th in yards per attempt at 6.5. Sensible move by Tampa Bay, which allowed a pathetic 7.9.

    If it was the 90's I could see this. CB is still a very important position don't get me wrong, but with how the rules are these days having the BEST CB is not a huge deal any more. For me the Bucs got screwed and the Jets were very lucky to get rid of a player like Revis. This is a reflection of the position he plays not the player that he is. The Dolphins franchise would have been better served with him remaining in NY while they pay him a HUGE contract. Now they are off the hook of that and have TWO more picks to take his place. And yes he can be replaced mainly because of how the rules are slanted towards the offense these days. Plus the way he likes to hold out every 2 years or so that would have hurt them as well.
