Rookies And Revis

Bucs trading philosophy: Make sure the knees are fucked up. We love a challenge.
The Bucs have been busy signing their draft picks to contracts and currently have their last four picks taken care of. Only Johnthan Banks and Mike Glennon remain unsigned, but seeing as how there’s not a lot to negotiate over and neither of them are going to hold out and go back into the draft next year, the Bucs probably aren’t sweating it.

In other news about not sweating it, Darrelle Revis will apparently not attend OTAs with the team, but he will be at One Buc getting rehab for his knee.

Considering how heavily the Bucs are expected to lean on Revis this season, his absence during offseason practices raises questions about how seamlessly he can be integrated with his new team. Essentially, the man who is expected to be the most vital member of the defense won’t join his teammates on the field until the first day of training camp, at the earliest.

All these questions were raised by the Bucs when they traded for Revis because they knew he wouldn’t be ready right away. And as Stephen Holder points out in the article, Revis’s main responsibility will be to lock up a receiver one-on-one. Regardless of how complicated Greg Schiano’s defense is, it won’t make Revis’s job much harder and the learning curve won’t be anything he can’t handle.
