The stare-down between the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers over Darrelle Revis could be nearing an end.
The Bucs have been granted permission to have the star cornerback visit Tampa Bay and undergo a physical, according to multiple reports. The Jets have expressed a desire to have Revis on the trading block for a while, and the Bucs, trying to find an answer to correct the league's worst pass defense from a season ago, appear to be a likely suitor.
Speaking in general terms when asked about Revis last week, Bucs coach Greg Schiano said, "Whenever we can get better, we're going to do it, Schiano said, speaking in general teams because of NFL rules about commenting on players from other teams. I don't care if it's midnight it doesn't matter. If we can get better, if we have an opportunity to get better, we're going to do it.
Revis, a six-year veteran who has appeared in the Pro Bowl four times, has 294 tackles and 19 interceptions in his career.
