For quarterback Josh Freeman's targets on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, practice may make perfect. The addition of All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis in an April trade with the Jets has energized wide receivers Mike Williams and Vincent Jackson, who can't wait to test their skills against Revis in training camp and during regular-season practices. ""I keep telling him I'm not one of those receivers he's been checking,'' Williams said with a smile following Wednesday's practice. "Darrelle said he's been going against the best and I told him, 'If the ball's in the air, I'm gonna get it.' We keep arguing every day. I can't wait to go against a guy of that caliber -- he can get me better.'' Jackson, who led the NFL by averaging 19.2 yards per catch in his first year with the Bucs, predicted Revis would be a "great leader'' this fall, on and off the field.
