Say this about the NFL schedule-makers: They've got a sense of humor.
Citing a source, USA Today reports the Jets will open up the 2013 season hosting the Buccaneers at MetLife Stadium.
The NFL will release the full schedule tonight at 8 p.m., but there's too much intrigue for this not to be on the Week 1 slate.
As previously reported, both teams continue to hammer away at a blockbuster trade that would send superstar cornerback Darrelle Revis to Tampa in exchange for several draft choices.
On Wednesday, ESPN's Adam Schefter said it's "60-40" that Revis is dealt, likely in the days leading up to next week's draft.
Thanks to those evil geniuses at 345 Park Avenue, the plot has thickened immensely.
