A long anticipated trade was finally acted on today as the New York Jets traded cornerback Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a 2013 first rounder (13th overall) and a conditional 2014 fourth round pick that moves to a third rounder if Revis is still on Tampa on the 3rd league day of the 2014 season. Revis also signed a new 6 year, 96 million dollar contract with Tampa, which comes out to 16 million per year. However, none of the money is guaranteed. We have discussed our feelings on the potential of this trade previously (here, here, here, here and here among other places), but here is our thoughts now that the deal is confirmed and the compensation is known.

However, the next couple of weeks are going to present him with numerous critical decisions that will shape both the 2013 roster and the team’s future beyond the upcoming season.

New York Jets fans should be optimistic about the early returns on new GM John Idzik
The New York Jets went through an exhaustive process to find their new General Manager after firing Mike Tannenbaum.

However, taking Smith with their 9th overall pick or even the 13th overall pick potentially acquired in a Darrelle Revis trade would be a mistake…a mistake that the Jets aren’t likely to make.
