Darrelle Revis will make $16 million this season. (USATSI)
If nothing else, Darrelle Revis gets points for honesty. After six seasons with the Jets, he was traded to the Buccaneersin the offseason where he signed a six-year, $96 million deal, including $16 million this season.

On Sunday, Tampa suffered its latest debilitating loss, this time to the Seahawks, to drop to 0-8 on the season.

So does Revis' bump in salary make playing for the perpetual dumpster fire that is 2013 Bucs worth it compared to the relative success he had in New York?

Yep, it would appear so.

The Jets are currently 5-4, the No. 6 team in the AFC, and two games behind the Patriots in the division. The best thing you can say about the Bucs is that there wasn't a MRSA outbreak last week.
