    Summary of 2 articles · Updated Apr 27, 2013
    It also can be said that the Jets paid $1 million to make the trade happen. Revis’ deal makes him the highest paid defensive player, along with Mario Williams, at $16 million per year. Here’s the language:  “Furthermore, the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers agree and understand that at the time of this trade Darrelle Revis’ 2013 Bonus for the Player’s Presence on Club’s 80-man roster on 5th Day of the 2013 League Year vested while Darrelle Revis was a member of the New York Jets roster and therefore the entire 2013 Roster Bonus in the amount of One Million Dollars shall be paid by the New York Jets.” The Williams contract contains $4 million in incentives which are not in Revis’ deal. Williams receives $53 million over the first three years of his deal, with $50 million in guarantees, while Revis has an unguaranteed $48 million. At the time, the Jets and Bucs were believed to be on the brink of a deal.  Many assumed that all of the player’s prior pay for 2013 fell within the scope of his new $16 million compensation package from the Bucs. All of it did except for the $1 million roster bonus.
