The Patriots may not need to worry about facing Darrelle Revis twice a year soon.
The Jets cornerback was granted permission to meet with the Buccaneers and undergo a physical, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Schefter tweeted that permission for Revis to take a physical for Tampa Bay “never would have been granted” if the Jets and Bucs couldn’t work out a trade.
A trade between New York and Tampa Bay has been rumored for months now. Revis would have been a free agent after the 2013 season, and the Jets will be able to get more for him in a trade than they would have in a compensation draft pick.
The Buccaneers hold the No. 13 pick in the upcoming NFL draft. A deal between both teams would likely include that draft choice and more picks. The Jets already hold the No. 9 selection in the draft.

TAMPA, Fla. This was a memorable Monday at One Buc Place, possibly a landmark one if cornerback Darrelle Revis helps make Tampa Bay a playoff contender or more, and coach Greg Schiano left little mystery about where he stands following the Bucs' ability to secure the games best defensive back.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers feel they've already had a strong draft.
Landing three-time All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis in exchange for the 13th overall pick of the first round not only addressed the team's biggest need, but offers general manager Mark Dominik and coach Greg Schiano some flexibility in the team's approach in later rounds.

manager Mark Dominik told Peter King of Sports Illustrated that he expects
Revis to be...
As the dust settles on the blockbuster Darrelle Revis trade, it's clear the All-Pro cornerback chased every penny of his historic $96 million contract with the Bucs.
Color Warren Sapp unsurprised.
The former Buccaneer and current NFL Network analyst slammed Revis for possessing a "selfish," me-first mentality, something Sapp was rarely privy to in Tampa.
Former Buccaneers defensive tackle Warren Sapp told The Tampa Tribune that Darrelle Revis is a selfish player for the way he’s held out for more money over the course of his career.
“He’s selfish and he’s never been a team player,” Sapp said. “We didn’t win the championship that way. Derrick Brooks and I always cared more about the team than ourselves.”
It only makes...
