New York, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Jets could soon be parting ways with cornerback Darrelle Revis.

According to multiple reports, including the New York Post, ESPN and, the Jets have granted the Tampa Bay Buccaneers permission to visit with Revis and give him a physical.

Revis is recovering from surgery to repair a torn ACL in his left knee. He was hurt in Week 3 last season against Miami.

There has been speculation since January, when John Idzik took over as Jets general manager for the fired Mike Tannenbaum, that Revis was on the trading block. Rumors of a deal to Tampa Bay have been brewing for weeks.

Revis can become a free agent after the 2013 season and has had issues with Jets management in the past. He held out as a rookie after being selected in the first round of the 2007 draft and had a lengthy holdout in 2010 before signing a long-term contract that ends after this season.

The belief is the Bucs would send the Jets their first-round pick, the 13th overall selection, in Thursday's draft, and a package of more draft choices for Revis.

Considered the top shutdown corner in the NFL, the 27-year-old Revis played just two games last year, missing one contest with a mild concussion before his season-ending injury. He had missed just three games in his first five seasons and has 19 career interceptions, three of which he has returned for touchdowns.
