When he was at his "Revis Island" heights, Darrelle Revis left the Jets to ink a six-year, $96 million deal with the Buccaneers in 2013.
As Albert Breer of SI points out, the $16 million average annual value that Revis received on that monster deal (he also got $16 million annually from the Jets when returning to Gang Green in 2015) is still right around where the current top of the cornerback market is seven years later.
Adding more context to the situation, Mike Tannenbaum broke down the current state of the cornerback market.
Darius Slay, who the Detroit Lions traded to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday -- with the Eagles inking him to a three-year deal worth $50 million that includes $30 million in guarantees -- is now the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL.
Here's the breakdown, per Tannenbaum:
Darius Slay: $16.7 million average annual value
Byron Jones: $16.5 million AAV
Xavien Howard: $15.1 million AAV
James Bradberry: $14.5 million AAV
Patrick Peterson: $14 million AAV
Seven years later, Revis isn't on an island, but it remains pretty close.
