When cornerback Darrelle Revis signed a six-year, $96 million deal with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the offseason, he thought the drama was over. He no long would have to deal to do with the New York media like he did with the Jets, wouldn’t constantly be on television and in the news and wouldn’t have his coach always putting his foot in his mouth.
That hasn’t been the case.
On Tuesday, a report surfaced that Revis was unhappy with Bucs head coach Greg Schiano and the way he schemes on defense. Revis quickly tried to win back the fans, saying he was “happy to be a Buccaneer.”
On Wednesday, Revis spoke out about the teams problems.
“I thought those New York days was over,” Revis said, via JoeBucsFan.com.
Revis again denied rumors that he was unhappy in Tampa Bay.
“I think the best thing through these situations is to be honest,” Revis said. “Be honest, and for us as a team to stick together. A win will change everything. A win will change this whole atmosphere.”
Revis is right. After losing two boneheaded games to the Jets and the New Orleans Saints, a win is exactly what the Bucs need. That won’t be easy. The Bucs will be in New England to take on Tom Brady and the Patriots Sunday.
