Wow Bucs traded the house for Revis

New York Jets to trade Darrelle Revis to Tampa Bay Buccaneers, pending physical -- source - ESPN New York

Gave up their 13th plus other draft pics. I think this is a horrible move and is good for us. Gave up WAY too much.

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

Darrelle Revis received a 6-yr deal from the Bucs that makes him highest paid DB in NFL history but includes NO guaranteed money. None.

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.

Re: Wow Bucs traded the house for Revis

Crazy, but the fact that there's no guaranteed money does make the financial side of it a bit more bearable.

Still, they are wasting too much money on just a few individuals on that team to ever become a serious contender, and giving away their 1st and potentially a 3rd next year is a steep price to sign a DB.

Jets announce the conditional 2014 4th-rounder become a 3rd-rounder if Revis is on TB's roster on 3rd day of '14 league year. So it's a 3rd

Re: Wow Bucs traded the house for Revis

I have to say I think the Bucs got a pretty good deal here. 1st and 3rd for Revis is solid as long as he is healthy. They have a lot of cap room and our division is very pass heavy so it was aggressive move that could be very good form them. Also, no guaranteed money protects Tampa in case Revis has health problems. If Revis he can be a big upgrade to their defense.

Checked Jets and Bucs forums, Jets fans think they got fleeced and should of gotten more, Bucs fans very happy with the deal.

I will absolutely love watching Brees make him look like Jason David.

Who is the starter opposite Revis? Eric Wright?

I do agree with you on that the Jets should've probably gotten more out of this deal, but they just didn't have the leverage or enough potential suitors to drive up the price.

Still, $16M/yr for a DB is way too much money even if one has the cap space for such a move.
