Greg Schiano says Darrelle Revis likely at practice when camp starts

Revis AP

When the Buccaneers hold their first training camp practice on Thursday, July 25, Greg Schiano anticipates cornerback Darrelle Revis will be on the field, the Buccaneers’ head coach said today, per the club’s official Twitter feed.

However, it’s important to note that the Buccaneers used the term “in some capacity” when describing Schiano’s characterization of Revis’ potential participation.

The Buccaneers and Revis figure to be prudent with regard to his practice participation, considering the four-time Pro Bowl cornerback is coming off an ACL tear that ended his final season with the Jets. However, it’s a positive that Schiano is saying Revis figures to be present for practice.

Even if Revis gets in some work off to the side in-uniform as he did at minicamp, that beats staying inside and rehabilitating.

For mid-July, this is a silver lining.

    On the field getting toasted, most overpaid CB not named Cromartie.

    #Overrated

    Revis ACL tear was just bad karma from Matt Slausen….

    Hope he gets back to the form that made him the best CB in the biz…. especially since my Texans don’t play the Bucs…..

    He really just needs to be ready to go week 2 vs. NO. Week 1 vs. the Jets is the easiest game on the schedule.

    Hearing nothing but good things thus far. Even if he is 80% of what he was that’s a HUGE improvement from what the Bucs had

    Be prepared to get toasted by Julio Jones

    Robo Cop is gonna be more nimble than him coming off this ACL tear.

    He’s holding out … seems he feels he’s out-performed his contract and wants to renegotiate.

    He is this years Nnamdi.

    Trust me, Revis will not be in camp until he gets a new contract!

    Hey, let’s all be original and talk about how Revis will holdout, or how he is overpaid; maybe yet we’ll just call him overrated.

    Then, I can talk about a man only giving up 8 touchdowns in 5 seasons against #1 receivers.

    Ok, then.

    If the Buc season was a golf course, and the first hole was called ‘week one’, the handicap for the first hole would be #16.

    Toes on the line.
    Looking forward to those hot days at RayJay :( of all the places to build a dome, Tampa is it.

    Poor Jets fans. smh

    Trying so hard to demonize him when you obviously long for him to still be in your secondary.

    I can’t wait for week 1.

  14. duneroad says: Jul 18, 2013 3:27 PM

    So he isn’t going to hold out yet?

  15. rcali says: Jul 18, 2013 3:55 PM

    Well, this year he won’t have to fake an injury during camp. What was that again he had when he was forcing a contract extension with the Jets, some kind of PMS headache or something? Help me out Jet fans.

    Schiano will be smart about it. No reason at all to rush him back. I’m even ok if he misses the first 2 or 3 games to ensure he’s as comfortable as possible on the knee.. Just don’t let it be a Derrick Rose-like saga.

    His technique is flawless.

    Trent Dilfer was not better than Dan Marino. Jeff Hostetler was not better than Dan Fouts. And Eli is not better than Peyton. But Flacco is. What’s the difference between Flacco and Fouts? Jimmy Smith, Ladarius Webb, Matt Elam, Michael Huff.

    God, I’m gonna miss Revis. Hopefully Richardson and Milliner pan out and make losing the best CB in football less painful. And to texansblog, Revis tore his ACL before Slauson unfortunately took out Cushing, so hard to place karma on that.

    If this guy can play up to his prior for, the Bucs will be able to protect who is at the other corner by rolling double tor zone coverage to the other side. The Bucs will also be able to create blitz packages knowing that the other team only has a couple of ways/receivers to throw to. This guy is going to have an impact on so many other parts of the defense. Go Bucs.
