09:39 AM ET 04.21 | The Jets and the Buccaneers took a significant step toward completing a trade for star cornerback Darrelle Revis with the Jets granting permission to Tampa Bay to examine Revis' surgically repaired left knee, according to a source. The source said the examination of his knee, a key hurdle to clear in the deal, may have already happened. The Jets and Buccaneers would like to complete a trade before the NFL Draft begins on Thursday. The Buccaneers reportedly are willing to give up their first-round pick (No. 13 overall) in addition to a package of other picks between this year and next year's Draft. That the Jets have granted the Buccaneers permission to give Revis a physical is a sign that this trade is very close to happening. It is safe to assume the two sides have the basic framework of a deal worked out or this permission would not have been given.

Good grief! Get it done already.

By the way, I think giving up a first round pick on a guy who was great before he had the knee issue is a bit spendy.

What the Bucs really need is permission to examine his brain.

Curious to see what the Bucs would trade in picks. They have to realize they are bidding against themselves.

If they think the Jets would turn down a 2 pick and a package, then they are in the wrong business. The last thing the Jets want is Reevis for one year and then nothing for him.

I know I don't have behind the scenes knowledge to know for sure, but it seems like a lot of GMs don't have the ability to just walk away when there is a price that's exorbitantly high.

And maybe there Raiders are a real exception to the rule, but for the life of me, I could never understand why they gave up two first rounders for Carson Palmer when they could have gone out and found someone decent in the first three rounds of the draft.

I would think so. I would, a 2 pick and a 4 if I could squeeze it out of them and something next year? In a heart beat. I would just want to move on, open up some cap space ( if not used this year it can be carried over) and some new air in the building.

So, stockpile draft picks for next year when there is a new coach and Sanchez is definitely out of the building?

either way-the only variable is if NY likes one of the Qbs - which I have no idea-

I think they blow it up next year unless there is something miraculous. But if they don't make the playoffs, I think RR is definitely gone.

That works, and you can always ask for that one pick and more. They need to open up cap space next year and draft some of those fat guys that play the line this year. Not glitzy, but sensible.

The Bucs obsession with Revis is example number one of why this organization is dysfunctional and headed towards years of wallowing in last place. They are hardly one cornerback from being competitive - even if Revis was healthy and as good as HE thinks he is. They are going to give up their draft this year - and to placate Revis have to commit ridiculous money to him.

The good news for football fans - once out of NYC we won't have to read about Revis constantly as he fades into obscurity - notable likely as one of the worst trades in NFL history.

What I discovered about that trade recently really surprised me. Madden and Ron Wolf both told Mark Davis to pull the trigger on that deal...It wasn't just Hue as I thought before.
