Darrelle Revis says he is 'getting back to his old self'

Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis is still trying to recover from his season-ending knee injury that required reconstruction. Some say that he hasn’t performed like in year’s past. Part of that has been blamed on head coach Greg Schiano using him in zone coverage instead of man-to-man.

“I’m getting back to my old self,” Revis said, via the Tampa Bay Times. “I’m feeling very comfortable. The knee is feeling a lot better, the leg is feeling a lot better. So this is nothing new. Coming into this, this was the process and this is what I’ve got to deal with. I’ve just got to keep on working on it, getting better.”

His opponents agree and have started to throw the ball less to Revis’ side of the field. Revis says that sometimes makes things boring and his biggest challenge isn’t mentally checking out because of the boredom.

“That’s how it usually goes, but I think the biggest thing is fighting against boredom sometimes,” Revis said.

The Bucs play the Dolphins on Monday night and Revis would likely draw Mike Wallace in coverage. Wallace hasn’t been having his best season but is still a threat. In eight games this season, Wallace has 36 catches for 480 yards.
