Revis Leaving New England To Rejoin The New York Jets
The agents for Darrelle Revis tweeted Tuesday night that the star cornerback has agreed to terms on a contract with the New York Jets.
Revis, 29, would return to the Jets after two seasons with Tampa
Bay and New England.
According to multiple reports, the deal is for five years and $70
million with $39 million fully guaranteed.
He played his first six NFL seasons for the Jets, building a
reputation as one of the league's top cornerbacks after they
drafted him No. 14 overall in 2007.
Revis started all 16 games last season for the Patriots, collecting
47 tackles and two interceptions on the way to a sixth Pro Bowl
nod. The team declined to pick up a reported $20 million option on
his contract, making him a free agent at the start of the new
league year on Tuesday.
He won a Super Bowl with the Patriots last month and has 391
tackles, 23 interceptions and six forced fumbles in 111 NFL games,
including 79 with the Jets.
