Now that he’s safely a Patriot, Darrelle Revis can laugh about it.
But asked what he missed about his year in Tampa Bay, the best he could come up with was “the weather.”
That’s nothing against the players, which he said he liked, but it’s clear last year was a disaster in every other way.
“Every coach has their own philosophy and coaching style. It could work, it could not work. It didn’t and we went 4-12,” Revis said of former coach Greg Schiano, via Greg Auman of the Tampa Bay Times. “The result is 4-12. That’s what you get. It’s already spoken what happened. A lot of us got fired.”
Revis landed softly, so he’s not bitter about the Bucs saving the $16 million they’d have spent on him and dividing up among others.
“It’s business. I know what it is,” Revis said. “They acquired three three other people for me, and that’s fine. You’ve got to move on. I’ve moved on. I’m in a great place right now. I’m just getting prepared for the season.”
One in a place where it’s far less likely he’ll be fired.
