Revis Eager To Make Debut With Buccaneers

johnson revis [1]TAMPA, 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.
