BREAKING: Darrelle Revis Signs With The New York Jets

The New York Jets have officially signed All-Pro CB Darrelle Revis, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, luring him away from the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.

The deal is worth $70 million for the next five years with $39 million guaranteed, making him the highest paid cornerback in NFL history.

He will join Buster Skrine in New York's secondary, who also signed with the Jets today.

The Patriots released Revis – as expected – over the weekend to save themselves the $20 million he was guaranteed for the upcoming season, and they thought they were going to be able to re-sign him. However, the money and a return to New York was too much for Revis to walk away from.
