Revis “Understands The Concepts”June 4th, 2013
Darrelle Revis talked to reporters at One Buc Palace today. Joe will have more on that fun later. However, Greg Schiano acknowledged that his $16 million cornerback is a bit of a wizard off the field when he’s not rehabilitating his surgically-repaired knee.
A reporter relayed to Schiano Revis’ take that he’s got his role in the Bucs defense down pat. And Schiano agreed.
“In the meeting room and in the walkthrough he’s doing very well,” Schiano said. “He understands the concepts.”
Pressed on whether live action was important to getting Revis ready for opening day, Schiano explained that “cuttin’, breakin’ and runnin’” were more important to Revis’ readiness than lining up from a real live receiver in practice or a preseason game.
It’ll be darn interesting to see how much the Bucs protect Revis. The more Joe listens, the more Joe wouldn’t be surprised if Revis first takes the field wearing his Bucs colors at the Meadowlands in September.
