The Darrelle Revis who suits up for the Patriots this season will be just as effective as the Darrelle Revis who was a three-time All-Pro with the Jets, according to Revis’s trainer.
Brett Fischer, who leads Revis’s offseason workouts, told the Boston Herald that Revis moves just as well as he ever did and no longer even thinks about the torn ACL he suffered in September of 2012.
“Now that [Revis] is with a new team, obviously a winning organization like that, he’s so fired up. To see the determination that he has, he’s unbelievable,” Fischer said. “The fun thing for me is we’re starting with a person who played this year with basically no injury, so we can take him to the next level. I think fans in New England are going to see a guy who is even better than in the past because he has rehabilitated himself from the ACL. To have him to the point now, we don’t even mention the ACL. It’s not even a factor. He’s looked so well in all his drills. He’s looked great in everything he’s doing.”
Fischer says Revis is working as hard as he’s ever worked.
“When Darrelle comes in the door, you never have to push him. That’s what makes him great,” Fischer said. “He knows we’re going to push him to the limit and get after him. He accepts that, and he wants that.”
The Patriots want to see Revis looking like the cornerback they used to play against twice a year. It sounds like that’s what the Patriots are going to get.
