Revis to get back to team work next week

While there’s still a possibility Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis could play in next week’s third preseason game, the more important milestone will be Monday.

Bucs coach Greg Schiano told Albert Breer of the NFL Network that Revis would participate in team drills in practice next week.

We’ll get him into the general practice population now, and get him doing some team stuff, just get him playing a little bit more,” Schiano said. “He did a little 7-on-7 last week in the red area, we’ll give him some more, and just take it, add a little bit, see how he is the next day and add a little bit more.”

“If he just keeps going, says, ‘Yeah, I wanna do this,’ then we won’t have to think about it as much. And if he doesn’t play, that doesn’t mean he isn’t feeling good. You just sit back and, like I said from the beginning, I don’t need to see him play in the preseason. I know what he’s capable of. He just needs to get to where he’s confident and feels like, ‘I can go out and play.’ “

While it might be nice to see how he’d react in a game situation, the fact they feel comfortable giving him time to ease back from knee surgery is sign of how important he is to their process.

    The Bucs need some of the veteran players to step up as leaders. The Pats have Wilfork, Brady and Mayo who set the standard for the team. These guys lead by example in the classroom and on the field. It is an important part of a team. TB fans should be happy with the play ofQB Glennon.

    Remember when Revis was “speechless” ?

    I wish he would stay that way…

    I just realized that Revis is getting paid $5 million per anticipated interceptions. He averages 3 interceptions a year and is getting paid 16 million per year. Highway robbery!

    As a long-time Buc’s fan, I am hoping this Revis trade works out. Last year, it was Eric Wright with the big contract and stunk it up. If the Buc’s overpaid for damaged goods, I will really start to question Mark Dominik’s decision making.

    He’s a shutdown corner. Not an interception machine. And he’s also the best there is at it. Bar none.

    There is no GM or Coach at the Bucs making any decisions. Only Glazers children do. They just hide behind the curtain, because they generally make bad decisions and then fire the entire staff once or twice a year.

    Wow their are some dumb people on here. Revis does not get balls thrown his way. Thats why he only gets a few pics a year.
