Report: Bucs granted permission to examine Revis

TAMPA – One of the biggest obstacles standing the way of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers completing a trade for New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has apparently been cleared.
The Bucs have been granted permission to give Revis a physical, which is scheduled to take place sometime today in Tampa, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Neither Bucs nor Jets officials would immediately confirm the report, but if true the report denotes a significant step in the process of the cornerback needy Bucs completing a trade for Revis.
The Bucs and Jets have been discussing a possible trade of Revis for weeks, but one of the hang-ups has been the Bucs desire to examine Revis, who is recovering form a torn left ACL suffered last September.
The Bucs, who are admittedly short on starting caliber cornerbacks, have expressed a willingness to part with the 13th pick in this year’s draft for Revis, who is considered by many to be the best cornerback in the game today.
