The Patriots won't have to worry about seeing Darrelle Revis twice a year anymore.

The veteran cornerback's agents, Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod, tweeted that their client and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to terms on a new deal, a sign that the trade between the Jets and Bucs that was reported to become official today is in fact a done deal.

 

 

According to ESPN, in return, the Jets received Tampa Bay's first-round pick in 2013 and a conditional fourth-rounder in 2014. The conditional pick could become a third-rounder if Revis is still on the Tampa roster on the third day of the league year next year in March, ESPN reported.

Revis, a four-time Pro Bowler, tore the ACL in his left knee in the third game of the 2012 season. Before that, he had been seen as one of the best -- if not the top -- shut-down corners in the league.

After checking out Revis' knee, the Buccaneers signed him to a six-year deal worth $96 million, ESPN reported. However the deal includes no guaranteed money, according to the report.

Revis traveled to Tampa for a physical on Saturday, the last obstacle in finalizing the trade between the Bucs and Jets, which has been rumored for months.
