Well, the Darrelle Revis sweepstakes are over and he’s heading home to the New York Jets. The deal is reported to be worth nearly $40 million guaranteed. Some teams that were also interested in the superstar were the Browns, Bills, Chiefs and the Patriots.

Revis played for the Jets for six seasons (2007-2012) while racking up nearly 300 tackles, 20 interceptions and one sack. During the two previous seasons, Revis suited up for the Buccaneers and Patriots while also winning Super Bowl XLIX.

The 6-time Pro Bowler and 4-time 1st-team All-Pro has consistently played at an elite level and has solidified himself as an elite cornerback throughout his career so it’s no surprise that he’ll be cashing in once again. Here is the full contract breakdown: The contract is 5-years, $70 million with $39 million fully guaranteed. During the first year he’ll receive $16 million fully guaranteed. Second year he’ll receive $17 million fully guaranteed. Third year, $15 million with $6 million fully guaranteed. Throughout the first three years, Revis will earn $48 million. Then, for the fourth and fifth years, he’ll receive $11 million both years, but with $0 guaranteed.

If “Revis Island” plays out this contract, he would’ve made somewhere around $125,199,500 throughout his NFL career. THAT’S A LOT! Even if it seems that Revis has gone where the money is, he deserves it in the end. Besides, you never know when your career will end so it’s better to be safe than sorry. The Pittsburgh Panther product is now the highest paid defensive back, EVER. It’ll be interesting to see how the 30-year old holds up, but for now, congrats Darrelle.
