Trainer calls Revis' rehabbed knee a 'non-factor'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/1/2014) New Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis has intensified his training and doesn't need any maintenance on the knee he injured in the 2012 season. Revis tore his ACL with the Jets, rehabbed it and was traded to the Buccaneers for the 2013 season and then got released this spring and signed with New England. 

"To see the determination that he has, he's unbelievable," trainer Brett Fischer told the Boston Herald. "The fun thing for me is we're starting with a person who played this year with basically no injury, so we can take him to the next level. I think fans in New England are going to see a guy who is even better than in the past because he has rehabilitated himself from the ACL. ... It's a non-factor. He's back to looking great."

Revis had two interceptions and 11 passes defensed with the Bucs last season. 


Darrelle Revis says he was slow, sluggish early last season


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2014) New Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis discussed his comeback from a devastating knee injury and his ability to play all 16 games for the Buccaneers last season. "It was a long process. I did finish all 16 games. I was slow and maybe sluggish in the beginning of the season but week to week, I got stronger and stronger," Revis said, per the Boston Globe.

"Toward the end, I probably felt my best as a football player. That’s a thing where it took some time and I thank [the] Tampa Bay Buccaneers for everything they did to help me with my rehab throughout the course of the year. It was a big process to get through that and fight through it but right now I feel great. I’m just ready to play ball."


Details out on Darrelle Revis' contract


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/13/2014) The contract Darrelle Revis signed with the Patriots on Wednesday was technically more than a one-year, $12 million deal. According to FOX Sports, Revis has a two-year deal worth $32 million and $11.5 million guaranteed -- but it comes with a $20 million club option for 2015. Revis will have a $12 million roster bonus due on April 1, 2015. The point of that is to spur a decision from the Patriots a year from now -- either they'll cut Revis or renegotiate the deal ... unless they want to pay him $20 million in 2015, of course. 

Darrelle Revis agrees to one-year deal with Patriots


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The Patriots have agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent corner Darrelle Revis Wednesday according to ESPN.com, just hours after he was released by the Buccaneers. Revis will be taking a paycut while maintaining long-term flexibility, as the deal will pay him $12 million for 2014.

Revis had a solid 2013 season with the Buccaneers, recording 50 tackles and two interceptions while playing in all 16 games after recovering from knee surgery. He will replace the recently departed Aqib Talib for the Patriots, with one Pro-Bowl corner stepping in for another. 


Report: Jets reach out to Darrelle Revis, Pats considered favorites


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) The Jets might end up being without franchise corner Darrelle Revis for just one year, as the New York Daily News reported Wednesday the two sides have begun discussions on a possible reunion

Revis was released by the Buccaneers Wednesday, and the Jets have a need for a corner after their own release of Antonio Cromartie earlier in the week. It is not yet clear how far discussions have gone between the two sides, and the Daily News quoted a source close to Revis who believes the All-Pro will end up with the Patriots. 

Revis will likely come with a heavy price for whichever team ends up trying to sign him as a free agent. He proved unwilling to restructure his contract with the Buccaneers, which would have paid him $16 million over each of the next five years. 


Bucs part ways with Darrelle Revis


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/12/2014) After trying to find a trade partner for him, the Buccaneers have decided to release cornerback Darrelle Revis. FOX Sports reports the team will let go of the All Pro, ultimately deciding he is not worth $16 million -- a million per game -- this season. 

"We would like to thank Darrelle for his time and effort with our organization last year," Bucs GM Jason Licht said according to NFL Network. "Darrelle showed a lot of heart last year as he worked extremely hard to get himself back on the field following his knee injury sustained the previous season. We have specific ideas regarding the best way to build this defense and, while you never like to lose a good player, we believe this is in the best interests of our team moving forward. Darrelle was a true professional here in Tampa Bay and we wish him continued success in his career."

Revis is expected to get chased heavily in free agency. The Patriots have emerged as a potential landing spot. 


Report: Darrelle Revis wants to play for Patriots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Trade appears unlikely for Darrelle Revis


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/11/2014) Though the Buccaneers placed defensive back Darrelle Revis on the trade block, a trade is starting to look unlikely according to NFL.com Tuesday. Though a few possible suitors popped up, it seems like the Bucs' low asking price could not be met.

The next step is likely to come Wednesday, as the Buccaneers have to have Revis off the roster by 4 p.m. or a conditional fourth-round draft pick due to the Jets becomes a third-rounder. Revis appears likely to hit the open market as a free agent before that occurs.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Darrelle Revis linked to Eagles, Patriots


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Darrelle Revis' days numbered in Tampa Bay?


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) The Buccaneers are expected to cut star defensive back Darrelle Revis by 4 p.m. ET Wednesday if they cannot find a trade partner, according to a report from ESPN on Monday.

Revis has a $1.5 million roster bonus due on Wednesday. He was traded from the Jets to Tampa Bay for the 13th pick in last year's draft (Sheldon Richardson) and a conditional fourth round pick in this year's draft. That fourth rounder would become a third round pick for the Jets if Revis is still on the roster after 4 p.m. ET on Wednesday.

Revis returned from ACL surgery to play in all 16 games with Tampa Bay last season, recording 50 total tackles and two interceptions in 16 starts.


Lovie Smith: Darrelle Revis' skills won't go to waste


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/2/2014) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said cornerback Darrelle Revis is a good fit for his defense, which plays more man coverage than most people think, reports the Tampa Tribune.

“It’s funny to me about the Tampa 2,” Smith told the paper. “I mean, somebody sometime needs to go and look and see how much we really play that. Now, we’re a cover 2 team because to me, cover 2 is a great coverage if you think they’re going to pass. But all it is is that.

“We’re primarily going to be a man team. Whether we win or lose is going to be based on how we play man coverage, so that’s kind of where we’re at."


Some execs think Darrelle Revis 'ripe to be dealt'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2014) Teams are calling the Buccaneers to ask about cornerback Darrelle Revis, and some rival executives believe Revis is "ripe to be dealt" at the start of the league year, reports CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora. But La Canfora added that Tampa Bay is not shopping Revis at all.

Charles Tillman hopes to stay put, open to reunion with Lovie Smith


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Impending free agent cornerback Charles Tillman said he wants to stay with the Bears, but he seems to be intrigued by the possibility of joining his former coach, Lovie Smith, in Tampa Bay. Under that scenario, Tillman would play opposite Darrelle Revis.

“Obviously, it makes the deal probably a little sweeter just because it’s a former head coach,” Tillman told the Chicago Sun-Times. “You do know the system, you know the scheme.

“I think it helps it from a standpoint that it’s a former coach, a guy that you liked, a guy that you’d been with for 10 years. It’s cool. But it’s free agency. I’m open to whoever.”

Tillman predicted the Buccaneers eventually will lead the league in turnovers thanks to Smith.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Bucs, who finished 4-12, ranked 17th in total yards allowed and 21st in points allowed in 2013. New head coach Lovie Smith is a respected defensive mind who should mold this unit into a force.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
