To coin a phrase by a popular Jets fan…Oh the Pain. Yes I know the best player on the team and one of few game changers in the league gets traded to your team it is a time to rejoice. But if you are the team that traded Darrelle Revis well you leave yourself open to all kinds of second guessing. For those of you not up to date here is what happened:
The New York Jets traded the three-time All-Pro to the Bucs in exchange for the 13th overall pick in this week’s NFL draft and another selection next year.
Revis also agreed to six-year contract with his new team in a deal that his agents, Neil Schwartz and Jon Feinsod, confirmed is worth $96 million, with no guaranteed money.
The Jets also receive a conditional fourth-round pick in next year’s draft that will become a third-rounder if Revis, who is coming off a torn ligament in his left knee, is on the Buccaneers’ roster on the third day of the 2014 league year.
For all of you Jets fans who are howling at the trade, take a deep breath ...
