No Roadblocks For Darrelle Revis To Play Vs. JetsApril 23rd, 2013
Yesterday, Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik was on a massive media blitz talking about landing star cornerback Darrelle Revis. Appearing on all sorts of national and local shows is consistent with Dominik’s rock star status, and one was a spot on “Schein on Sports,” hosted by popular sports radio personality Adam Schein on Mad Dog Radio, heard exclusively on SiriusXM Radio.
Dominik talked about how trade talks with Jets general manager John Idzik first began at the NFL owners meetings in Arizona last month and were a rollercoaster ride since.
“Chronologially, [trade talks] accelerated at the end of last week,” Dominik said. “We came to a verbal agreement and then drew up trade papers over the weekend. It is something we have been talking back and forth. Sometimes we would go for weeks without talking.
“I thought it was too important not to stay on top of it. [Revis is] too big of a player and too much of a need for us” to let him slip away.

Dominik also said there is no concern that Revis, coming off ACL reconstructive surgery, will be sidelined when the Bucs open the season at the Jets this September.
