Are the New York Jets close to moving Darrelle Revis? It appears so.
The Jets have granted the cornerback permission to visit with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and take a physical, a Jets source told NFL.com's Albert Breer. ESPN's Adam Schefter first reported the news. Breer reported that the physical is expected be given Sunday.
Revis is rehabbing from a torn ACL he suffered last season. The Buccaneers, who will want to know as much about the knee before committing to a trade for Revis, hold the No. 13 slot in the 2013 NFL Draft and likely would have to give up that and a second-rounder. Another later pick is probable. The Jets already own the No. 9 spot.
The Buccaneers were last in the league in pass defense and 28th in pass TDs allowed. A healthy Revis would go a long way to improving those numbers. Revis turns 28 in July and is coming off an ACL tear.
