Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis has finished
his first week of practice with his new team. In that short amount of time,
general manager Mark Dominik was confident enough to tell Sports Illustrated’s
Peter King that Revis is “almost certain” to play in Tampa Bay’s Week 1 contest
against his former team, the New York Jets.
King notes that the Bucs have been encouraged by Revis’
progress this offseason, so it’s not entirely surprising to see him projected

So it looks like the Bucs and Darrelle Revis are no longer saying he is on track to hit the field against the Jets in the first week of the season. Instead, both sides are now saying they are “planning” on having him ready. I think that’s still too far down the road. Right now just going day by day, but that is the goal and we’ve talked about that. I want to be there, first...

The state of Florida has fallen on some hard times when it comes to football. While college teams in the state have had a successful decade, its three professional teams haven’t had the best few seasons. The Jaguars are an unwatchable mess, the Dolphins haven’t had an elite leader for a very long time now, and the Buccaneers’ once godly defense has fallen to mortal levels....

Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis should be a go for Week 1 against the Jets. SOURCE: Sports IllustratedFantasy Spin:Revis tore his ACL a little less than a year ago and is almost back to full strength. Assuming he hasn't lost a step, Revis should continue to be one of the most feared corners in the game.

The Pasco County Sheriff's office says an officer responded to a call about an argument at Darby's home in Land O'Lakes. Darby's wife told police they started arguing when she wanted to leave to take care of some things and Darby pushed her in the chest.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers made the biggest splash this off-season, acquiring all-world cornerback Darrelle Revis from the Jets for some draft picks, and signing big-name safety Dashon Goldson to cement their secondary – an area of dire need following last year. There’s some concern as to whether Revis will be the same player following a devastating ACL injury he sustained early...
