Revis Isn’t 100 PercentSeptember 12th, 2013
The $1 million-a-game man, Darrelle Revis, is still getting himself into shape.
Revis played well Sunday against the Jets, but he’s not all the way back from his surgically repaired knee.
The Darrelle Revis Show hit the airwaves tonight on WDAE-AM 620, and Revis was asked by a fan caller whether he was back to 100 percent. Revis didn’t pretend he was the old Revis.
“In due time, I’ll get stronger with my wind and my legs,” Revis said.
Revis played a large percentage of plays in New Jersey but he’s not yet himself, citing a light summer load. “I didn’t go through training camp,” Revis said.
None of this surprises Joe. Revis is, in fact, human. But what’s troubling is the Bucs’ depth at cornerback.
They don’t have any.
Leonard Johnson and Johnthan Banks are the only other healthy cornerbacks — literally. Rashaan Melvin missed opening day with a bum hamstring, and Michael Adams had knee surgery this week.
Without a roster move, Joe suspects safeties Ahmad Black and Keith Tandy will get some work at cornerback against the Saints, a troubling thought against Drew Brees.
