“Darrelle’s Putting In Overtime”June 11th, 2013
The odds of Darrelle Revis being not just ready for opening day but ready to dominate seem to rise daily.
Rockstar general manager Mark Dominik said last week that Revis was expected in pads on Day 1 of training camp. This afternoon at One Buc Palace, Greg Schiano painted a picture of Revis going far above and beyond in his rehabilitation.
“There’s no substitute for the player,” Schiano said. “The player has to be willing to do it. You talk about putting in overtime. Darrelle’s putting in overtime — late afternoons, weekends, this guy, all he’s doing. None of that’s required. … This guy, his rehab is pretty aggressive.”
Joe’s been hesitant to expect a full recovery by Revis in time for training camp and in time to reveal the old, All-Pro Darrelle Revis on opening day. But now even Joe is getting a bit swept up in the hoopla.
