Tampa Bay needed an upgrade in the secondary, and they got their upgrade. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers traded away their first-round pick in the 2013 draft to get Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets. Revis is already getting high praise from his new head coach Greg Schiano. Schiano called Revis the best cornerback he’s evaluated in 25 years. Schiano also had this to say about Revis: “He’s big, physical; a cover guy, he’ll tackle you. And he works his rear end off. His passion for preparation is something I love.” Schiano is quite overwhelmed with joy, and rightfully so. His team now has the best cornerback in the entire league. Need NFL Tickets?
