It comes down to what the Bucs think about their quarterback as much as their cornerbacks.

Josh Freeman and Darrelle Revis go hand in hand. Really, they do.

The Bucs need to take a long look at Revis, see if his knee is being rehabilitated back into shut-down form, because it's clear the Jets want to move their Pro Bowl corner.

If I'm Bucs coach Greg Schiano and Bucs GM Mark Dominik, I go get him, for the right price, no getting fleeced — but only if I think this team is close to breaking through.

Is that really the case?

The Bucs need to ask that.

Oh, and Ronde Barber needs to be asking it, too.

And a lot of that still goes back to 5.

Is this a Super Bowl quarterback — even a playoff quarterback? It's a question with an answer that changes with Freeman's ups and downs. We've seen him dress up as Michael Jackson. Cool. Great. Now, can he pretend to be Joe Flacco? I'm not so sure.
