Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis was the focus of Monday's “NFL Total Access." His rehabilitation from his ACL injury looks to be on track and he has almost all of his mobility back. General manager Mark Dominik is patting himself on the back as of late after pulling off the trade to get Revis, a plan he had in mind many months ago. “Quite frankly, it started when he blew out his knee,” Dominik said. “I actually went to our director of pro player personnel, Dennis Hickey’s office, and I said, ‘That could be the reason why he could leave the Jets.’ Because I knew what his contract situation was. So when he hurt his knee, I thought that’s going to be an out possibility.” Good thinking on his part, because that's exactly how the Jets were thinking, especially with a new GM in town. So when the possibility of acquiring the star CB came to a head, they needed to jump one big hurdle - approval from team doctors. “I think it was a few minutes, just in a separate office, where we just sat there and said, ‘You know, this is a big decision for our organization. You know, we’re committing a lot of money. We’re committing draft choices,’ ” Dominik added . “Those kind of things. But at the same point, having a chance to even just spend some time with Darrelle, again, knowing who he was and then getting the information back from the doctors that said everything’s progressing exactly where he should be at this point.” “They took a big risk. But it’s a good risk," Revis said.
