According to a recent report from Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, cornerback Darrelle Revis is not happy in Tampa because he’s chafing at the strict style employed by coach Greg Schiano and the team’s choice to play more zone coverage on defense than the man coverage that Revis rode to great success with the Jets.
Revis is aware of the report and took to Twitter on Tuesday to refute the allegations that he’s feeling blue about his new team.
What's going on Buc fans. Just to clear the smoke. I'm happy to be a Buccaneer & I'm happy to be a resident of Tampa.—

Revis’ denial isn’t likely to do all that much to quell the tensions around the Buccaneers all on its own. Winning is the only way to do that and you can be sure that chatter about unrest in the Buccaneer ranks will continue until Tampa starts doing that with some regularity.
