Darrelle Revis has promised to give the Tampa Bay Buccaneers everything he can following his switch from the New York Jets.
The 27-year-old’s move to Florida was confirmed on Sunday and following his first appearance in front of the press as a Bucs player, he is already making big plans for his new franchise in a bid to help them become favorites in the NFL live betting odds for next season.
After finishing 2012 with a 7-9 record, a number of the Tampa players will feel that they have something to prove and Revis has promised that his team “will make a lot of noise” throughout the coming campaign.
“People are going to sit here and say, ‘How’s he going to perform? How’s he going to play? Is he going to be like he was before?’” he said. “I understand all of that. I’m a hard worker. It’s all on me. I’ll give it my all.”
The Pennsylvanian has been looking to move for the last few months, after learning about the Jets’ willingness to trade him after tearing his anterior cruciate ligament in September.
Before the injury, Revis was considered the form cornerback in the competition but the New Yorkers had been worried about how long it would take him to return to his best.
This prompted the Bucs to fly in their top doctors to assess the cornerback, but general manager Mark Dominik says the medical staff were happy with the situation, although he is still unsure when the former All-American will return to the field.
“We feel very confident, or we wouldn’t have done this,” he said. “Obviously, it’s a significant trade and a significant amount of money, but at the same time, we have a lot of confidence with what we’ve done here as an organization. We feel very good about where he’s at.”
