    Revis shows extreme loyalty to his home town….his roots.
    Yes…the man deserves to be paid…pay the man…and we did….none guaranteed…speaks volumes for both the dealmakers….Dominick & Revis.
    Let the games begin!!!

    As a Tampa Bay fan from Milwaukee, I love to see him wearing the throwback Bucks hat.

    lol @ his mom making him fight that boy. I hope she’s at every game breakin balls…

    I agree Tampabaybuc, he wasnt being greedy. They wanted to pay an all-pro like a late round rookie?? I hope he makes a statement this Sunday, to the Jets & to the entire League. (cue T.I.’s – I’m Baaaack!)

    4 1/2 days!!

    The fact that he accepted a contract with no gaurantees shows he isn’t greedy he just wants to get paid for his production.

    Going to be so awesome come the Jets game.

    I disagree with the people saying it will be a close game. The Bucs are going to want to make a statement. The defense will be all over their offense and our own offense will score prove you really can flip a switch.

    Once again, my relentless insistence that we sign John Conner FB. From pft
    The season finale of Hard Knocks showed fullback John Conner losing his job. He wasn’t happy about it.

    As Conner sat down with Bengals coach Marvin Lewis to hear the bad news that he was cut, Conner asked what he could have done differently. Lewis answered that the hard-working Conner did everything asked of him, but that second-year player Orson Charles is younger, plays more special teams and was ultimately the only fullback the Bengals had room for on the roster.

    “This is a hard one. I know you’ve put your heart and soul into this,” Lewis told Conner. “You didn’t do anything wrong. You have done everything. It’s more just maybe the versatility of Orson, not necessarily what you didn’t do. Orson’s contribution on special teams may be more.”

    Conner said he didn’t see it coming, even though he’s been around the NFL long enough to know that fullbacks are an endangered species.

    “I’m shocked,” Conner said. “But it’s a business.”

    Conner’s departure came even though the Bengals’ coaches all agree that he’s a better fullback than Charles. In fact, when Lewis sat Charles down to show him what was expected of him, it was film of Conner that he put on the TV in his office.

    Conner is only 26. The Bengels must want high school age.
