The Tampa Bay Buccaneers had one of the worst secondaries in the league last season, giving up 4,951 passing yards and 30 touchdowns.Their passing defense was a stark contrast to their top ranked rushing defense and was blamed for Tampa Bay losing many close games in 2012.While there are some talented cornerbacks and safeties getting ready to enter the league soon through the Draft, Tampa Bay might also consider signing or trading for a good cornerback or safety before draft day arrives.Two viable options for Tampa Bay would be Chris Gamble and Darrelle Revis.  Chris Gamble Chris Gamble was drafted by the Carolina Panthers in 2004, and had been with the team until being released today and would be a good player for Tampa Bay as he is already acclimated to the NFC South division. The only issue with Gamble is the fact that he missed 12 games last season because of a shoulder injury.Gamble played in 123 regular season games for the Panthers, while piling up 508 combined tackles, a sack, four forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, 27 interceptions, 327 interception return yards, two interceptions returned for touchdowns, and 96 passes defended.Gamble leaves the Panthers holding their franchise records for interceptions and passes defended.Gamble will turn 30 years old in a couple of days, but if he can remain healthy he could still have plenty of productive years left.Gamble probably won’t come cheap but if Tampa Bay can afford him, they can’t afford to pass him up.Darrelle Revis The New York Jets are confident that they will be able to trade Darrelle Revis, who has been with the team since 2007, and a potential landing spot could be Tampa Bay.Similar to Gamble, a knock on Revis is the fact that he missed most of the 2012 season with an ACL injury.Revis has played in 79 regular season games for the Jets, and has accumulated 294 combined tackles, a sack, three forced fumbles, five fumble recoveries, 19 interceptions, 364 interception return yards, three interceptions returned for touchdowns, and 98 passes defended.Revis will be 28 in July and is another player that can be productive for years to come if he can stay healthy.
