After months of trade speculation, the New York Jets are prepared to desert Revis Island. The Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to a trade for Darrelle Revis, pending the star cornerback passing a physical, according to a league source. The parameters of a contract extension for Revis with the Buccaneers are in place. The Jets will receive multiple draft picks, including the 13th overall choice, from the Buccaneers if Revis passes his physical. The Jets already own the ninth pick, setting themselves up to add two potential impact players. Revis is en route to Tampa, a source said, and is expected to take the physical later Sunday. The contract isn't expected to be an issue for the Bucs, who apparently are willing to pay Revis about $15 million per year. But there's risk: Revis is only six months removed from ACL knee surgery and was cleared to run without restriction only last Monday. If the trade is consummated, the Bucs, determined to improve their league-worst pass defense, will have added two impact players to their secondary in safety Dashon Goldson and Revis, widely regarded as the best corner in the league. Jets officials had made it clear that Revis could be had for the right price, a surprising public stance that irked their best player, according to a source.
