With free agency set to begin at 4:00 on Tuesday, the Buccaneers have already been rumored to be heavily interested in some of the top defensive backs available.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Buccaneers are the favorites to land top defensive backs in free agency.

Four teams – SF, PHIL, DET, TB – in play on Dashon Goldson - but DET, TB considered favorites. TB also in on CBs Sean Smith, B. Grimes, DRC.

Goldson is the top safety on the market.  He is a big hitter from the safety position.  Goldson was an All Pro in 2012 and a pro bowler in 2011 and 2012.

Sean Smith, Brent Grimes, and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are considered the top 3 CBs on the free agent market this year.

It has also been reported by profootballtalk.com that the Jets have a “good offer” on the table to trade Darrelle Revis that is satisfactory both as compensation for the Jets and in financial terms of a new contract for Darrelle Revis.

The Broncos, Falcons, and 49ers have all recently denied interest in Revis.  While the Eagles have been mentioned as the possible leaders, the Buccaneers have been mentioned by many as the best landing spot for the Jets star.

The Buccaneers employ Revis’ college head coach (Wannstedt) and his collegiate position coach (Hafley).

Revis also shares an agent, Neil Schwartz, with Vincent Jackson.  Jackson just received a big deal negotiated between Schwartz and Mark Dominik a year ago.

I guess we can also throw in the fact that Mark Dominik and Jets GM John Idzik worked together in the Bucs front office for a number of years.
