After what seemed to take forever Darrelle Revis found a new team to play for in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As Revis was brought in by the Buccaneers organization today he told reporters that the team āwill make a lot of noiseā for this upcoming season.
Hopefully the Bucs new cornerback will be ready for Week 1, but Darrelle said there is a possibility that he might not be able to play. He had major knee surgery six month ago and he looks to return back to his shutdown corner reputation.
At the press conference Revis told reporters, āPeople are going to sit here and say, āHowās he going to perform? Howās he going to play? Is he going to be like he was before?ā I understand all of that. Iām a hard worker. Itās all on me. Iāll give it my all.ā
Tampa Bayās general manager Mark Dominik worked with doctors to evaluate Revisā knee to make sure that he would be able to play. Ā Dominik said that there was no major issues with Darrelleās knee but he would not say when their new cornerback would be able get on the field.
āWe feel very confident, or we wouldnāt have done this. Obviously, itās a significant trade and a significant amount of money, but at the same time, we have a lot of confidence with what weāve done here as an organization. We feel very good about where heās at,ā Dominik said.
So what did the Buccaneers have to give up to get Revis? Tampa Bay gave the New York Jets their first-round pick, which is 13th overall and a conditional fourth-round choice in 2014 that can move up to a third-rounder if Revis is on the roster on the third day of the 2014 league year.
Revis and the Jets were not happy with each other and the longer the team had Darrelle on their roster the more awkward their relationship became.
āI donāt have nothing to prove to the New York Jets,ā Revis said. āI donāt have nothing to prove to nobody. I know my expectations as a player, and thatās that. I donāt have a chip for the New York Jets. I have a chip because I want to get on the field and play ball.ā
The Buccaneers have been adding major players to their defense. Along with Revis, the Bucs signed San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson. The defense faces a division that has Drew Brees, Matt Ryan, and Cam Newton. All of these teams especially the Saints and the Falcons have great wide receivers and these new additions for the Bucs will help stop offensive threats like Julio Jones and Marques Colston.
If Revis can get back to the way he was before his knee injury, the Bucs do have potential to āmake noiseā as Darrelle stated earlier today.
