Darrelle Revis does 7-on-7 work for first time

Last week, Buccaneers General Manager Mark Dominik said that the team was “almost certain” that cornerback Darrelle Revis would be ready to play in the first week of the regular season.

On Monday, Revis took a step toward making that prediction come true. Rick Stroud of the Tampa Bay Times reports that Revis participated in 7-on-7 drills for the first time since camp opened. Revis was covering wide receiver Vincent Jackson during the drill and Stroud reports that Jackson knocked him to the ground while making a touchdown catch.

Assuming all continues to go well for Revis in his return from a torn ACL, he should move on to 11-on-11 work before too much longer. His knee has held up well during the gradual ramping up of his workload this spring and summer so there’s no reason to think that he won’t continue to progress at a pace that works for both him and the team.

The Bucs haven’t ruled out action in a ┬ápreseason game for their big offseason addition, although it seems more likely that we’ll see him in game action for the first time when Tampa faces Revis’ former Jets teammates in Week One.

    He’ll be at 80% according to the team when Week 1 rolls around. But he’s probably closer to 95% now.

    Great to hear! I’m sure he’ll be a little rusty at first, but practicing against V-Jax all day will quickly get him back in shape!

    Revis was a beast when healthy .I’m curious to see how this season go now that he’s not a part of Rex Ryan’s system.

    Is Revis a toes-on-the-line type of guy?

    TAMPA BAY – After being the best defensive player on the practice field on Monday, Darrell Revis left the Bucs training facility. According to sources Revis will now hold out until he receives a 50% pay increase. Revis’ agent confirmed the rumor late last night. Revis would only say: “I need to worry about Mr. Revis, after recovering from surgery, I realize each day could be my last.”
