Revis arrived at the Buccaneers' training facility Sunday afternoon, and Breer reported that he is expected to take a physical.
The Jets seemed to be asking for too much early on in negotiations, but they might want to take what they can get in terms of draft picks. Getting the physical out of the way allows for an immediate deal to be reached.
Revis is continuing to rehab from a torn anterior cruciate ligament he suffered in his left knee 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 overall pick in the 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 overall selection.
Revis and the Buccaneers have been working on a long-term contract for several days, sources briefed on the process told Rapoport. Substantial progress has been made, Rapoport reported, and the Buccaneers seem comfortable enough to make the trade, knowing Revis wouldn't be a one-year rental. The physical is thought to be the trade's final piece before everything comes together.
