Buzzing on Yahoo Sports:

Jets CB Revis get $1 million roster bonus

The SportsXchange

A $1 million roster bonus for New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis kicked in on Saturday as the team continues to try to trade him.

The Jets have reportedly been in talks with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers about trading Revis for a first-round pick.

Even though the Jets have been shopping Revis, they could not deal him in time to avoid a clause in his contract that calls for the bonus, according to ESPN New York. Even though he will not receive the money until later in the season, it still counts against the Jets' salary cap.

The money would still count against the Jets' cap if they trade him.

Revis is entering the final year of his contract, which pays him $6 million this year. He is coming off an ACL injury that cost him much of last season.
