Revis Eager To Make Debut With Buccaneers

johnson revisTAMPA, Fla. (AP) Darrelle Revis isn't making any bold predictions about his debut with his new team.

The star cornerback's return from knee surgery that's sidelined him nearly a year is set for Sunday, when Tampa Bay opens the season against the three-time All-Pro's old team, the New York Jets.

Revis has been looking forward to a new start since late April, when the Jets traded him to the Buccaneers, who signed him to a six-year, $96 million contract that makes him the highest-paid defensive player in the NFL.

The Bucs had the league's worst pass defense in 2012 and are counting on Revis and another offseason acquisition, All-Pro safety Dashon Goldson, to make a difference.
