Recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament suffered last September against the Dolphins in Miami, the 5-foot-11, 198 pound Revis was traded to the Bucs for the 13th overall pick in April’s draft.
“(The trainer) might tell me to slow down a little bit, but I’m going full tilt and I’m cutting because I’m feeling good,” said Revis, 27, who signed a six-year contract worth $96 million with Tampa Bay. “Cutting and running and doing what I have to do.”
Although there are zero guarantees a cornerback with a reconstructed knee can again thrive in a collision sport, Revis will likely mend and continue providing blanket coverage in the secondary.
Coming off a 7-9 record in the NFC South, Revis is the type of superstar that could help propel the Bucs to the playoffs for the first time since 2007.
A three-time All-Pro and four-time Pro Bowler, Revis is a truly tremendous ballplayer whose incredible pass protection skills prevent offenses from functioning properly.
Expecting to immediately dominate on the gridiron, the 2009 AFC Defensive Player of the Year should flourish competing at Raymond James Stadium and ignite the “Cigar City” as a Buccaneer this autumn.
