Finally! Revis Declares Knee Is “100 Percent”January 25th, 2014
It’s the declaration Bucs fans have been waiting for. Finally, five weeks after telling Tampa Bay media that his surgically-repaired knee still wasn’t quite perfect, Darrelle Revis told JoeBucsFan.com yesterday that his knee is “100 percent.”
After Friday’s Pro Bowl practice in Hawaii, Revis was asked, as he’s been many times before, to put a number on his knee health.
JoeBucsFan.com: What percentage is your knee at right now?
Darrelle Revis: I’m 100 percent, man. I feel real great. You know, through the course of the year it got stronger week to week. And I’m just trying to continue to improve and get back to where I used to play great ball.
JoeBucsFan.com: So next year Bucs fans can expect an even better Darrelle Revis?
Revis: Yes they can. Yes they can.
This is great news. Four weeks of postseason rest and rehab have put Revis fully in the healthy zone.
Shortly after the Bucs will break their final minicamp in June, Revis then plans to make his annual trek to Arizona for what he told Joe is an extreme preparation regimen — in extreme heat — for training camp.
Multiple times, Greg Schiano referenced Revis’ annual offseason work to be ”legendary.” Speaking to Joe in December, Revis said he wouldn’t go that far but said, “it’s not for everybody. I take it extremely seriously so I can be ready to win games in late January and February. You know, that’s the whole point.”
Stick with Joe through the weekend for more out of Pro Bowl week in Hawaii, including video of the Revis interview and more.
