NFL nots: Jets trade Revis to Bucs
First Published Apr 21 2013 05:51 pm • Last Updated Apr 22 2013 08:06 pm

Revis Island is relocating to Tampa Bay.

The Buccaneers took a bold move to fix the NFL’s worst pass defense Sunday, acquiring star cornerback Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this year’s draft and another selection next year.

"We’re thrilled. It’s rare that you get a chance to add a player of this caliber to your football team. That’s what motivated us," general manager Mark Dominik said.

The Bucs announced the deal Sunday, saying Revis agreed to a new six-year contract. Revis’ agents, Neil Schwartz and Jon Feinsod, confirmed the deal is worth $96 million, with no guaranteed money, but makes him one of the highest-paid defensive players in the NFL. It includes $1.5 million annually in both roster and workout bonuses.

The Jets also receive a conditional fourth-round pick in next year’s draft that will become a third-rounder if Revis is on the Buccaneers’ roster on the third day of the 2014 league year.

Trade talk had been swirling for months involving Revis, with the Bucs thought all along to be the most serious suitor. In addition to having a leaky secondary, Tampa Bay was more than $32 million under the salary cap before landing a player generally regarded as the best cornerback in football.

Michaels, the play-by-play man for "Sunday Night Football," was taken to the station, where he registered a blood alcohol level over the .08 percent legal limit, police said. He was booked for suspicion of DUI and held for about five hours before being released on his own recognizance, police said.

A call Sunday by The Associated Press to Michaels’ agent was not immediately returned.
