With his physical complete and his contract signed, Darrelle Revis officially became a Jet again on Wednesday.
"I'm just very excited. I feel this is my home," the shutdown cornerback told the team's website. "That's always been on my mind since I was drafted in '07. This organization embraced me, gave me a chance and an opportunity to live out my dreams and fulfill my dreams. So my heart has always been here."
A source told Newsday it's a five-year, $70-million deal that includes $39 million guaranteed.
Revis and his cousin, Jimmy Moore, boarded a jet in Fort Lauderdale at 2:21 p.m. and touched down in Morristown, New Jersey, two hours, 18 minutes later.
Revis, who spent six seasons with the Jets, was the cornerstone of Rex Ryan's defense. But after undergoing major knee surgery in 2012, he was traded to the Buccaneers by former Jets general manager John Idzik.
After winning a Super Bowl with the Patriots, Revis is looking forward to a new chapter with first-year GM Mike Maccagnan and coach Todd Bowles.
"I'm real excited to be a part of Coach Bowles' defensive scheme. I watched when he played with him in Arizona, just doing my research and keeping up with the guys I played with." Revis said. "I think I can be a piece to the puzzle."
After declining to pick up Revis' $20-million option for the upcoming season, the Patriots failed to strike a new deal with Revis before Tuesday's 4 p.m. free-agency deadline. And that allowed the Jets to strike a deal with the shutdown corner they desperately wanted.
The Jets also officially announced the signings of former Browns cornerback Buster Skrine and offensive lineman James Carpenter. Strong safety Marcus Gilchrist visited the Jets, but no deal has been announced. Cromartie also wants to rejoin Revis and the Jets, but both sides have yet to agree on contract figures.
