“I’m A Buccaneer Now And I’m Proud Of It”

April 24th, 2013

As part of his media blitz upon landing in Tampa Bay, new Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis spent a few minutes with Joe’s good friend, “The Big Dog,” Steve Duemig of WDAE-AM 620. At times while playing in New York, Revis was unfairly labeled as not being a team guy. Duemig asked Revis to clear up this notion.

“A lot of people thought you were a locker room cancer,” Duemig said. “I talked to enough people where I don’t think that at all. Can you address that?”

“There is really nothing to address,” Revis said. “I was one of the leaders on the team on the New York Jets. To me, that is just he-say, they-say, she-say, whoever-say. I never asked to leave the Jets. The Jets got something in return for this, too. It’s a new chapter for everybody, the New York Jets and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“Everybody I think is happy in this. I’m fine. I’m fine. I’m happy to be a part of Bucs Nation. I’m happy to be a Buccaneer.”

Revis also talked about the NFC South, his new division.

“I did my research on this division and I played against this division a couple of years ago,” Revis said. “It is tough and one of the best [divisions] as far as passing attack teams. There are so many guys that are all-stars and playmakers on their teams [in the NFC South]. The big part as I looked at is the team Tampa has here. I think Tampa is awesome. They had a good team here before me. I am just a piece of the puzzle. I will try to do everything I can , and my teammates I am sure will to, to help us win games.”

    I love seeing every team trying to move back in this draft. Makes me feel that much better about giving up the first round pick for Revis. It also makes me wonder if the Bucs jump back into the first round if a d-tackle or corner they were targeting is still there in the mid 20s

    Horrible interview

  4. bucfanjeff Says:

    I expect the Bucs to move up into the 1st. I’m sure they already have a partner or two targeted, it’s just a matter of if a player they really like falls far enough. I fully expect it and would be surprised if we didn’t.

  5. Luther Says:

    A lot of awkward moments in that interview.

  6. Brain Says:

    @bucfanjeff Dominik has said in the past that he prefers the 5-year 1st round contracts, but the difference in talent between late 1st and mid 2nd is minimal. If we move up it’ll be for a special player that we need badly, like Eifert or Datone Jones.

  7. Macabee Says:

    “I’m a Buccaneer now and I’m proud of it and the 96 million will help with a few expenses here and there”.

    Sounds reasonable to me!
