TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Darrelle Revis is confident he will fully recover from a major knee injury and help transform the Tampa Bay Buccaneers into a playoff team.
The three-time All-Pro cornerback acquired from the New York Jets was formally introduced Monday as the newest member of a defense that ranked last in the NFL in pass defense in 2012.
Revis says he's going to "do my best" to play up to expectations that come with a new six-year, $96 million contract. He says he holds no grudges against his old team, which was reluctant to give a player coming off surgery to repair a torn knee ligament such a commitment.
