The biggest concern surrounding the Tampa Bay Buccaneers trade for New York Jets’ corner back Darrelle Revis is less about money, and more about Revis’ health. Following a forgettable 2012 campaign where the four time pro bowler suffered a torn ACL injury finishing his season in week two, the question remains is Revis’ can return to his “Revis Island” form.
Former Buccaneers head coach, and current NBC Sports analyst, Tony Dungy tells 620 WDAE’s Sports Page that his biggest worry isn’t based on the knee injury.
“I don’t think there’s any thought of a long term problem” said Dungy. “To me, it’s more about how Revis is going to adjust to the (Bucs) system as opposed to the Jets system. That’s more of a question that the injury.”
Dungy did not answer if he would make the deal the Buccaneers made for Darrelle Revis himself, but did say that Revis will have a major impact on how teams scheme their passing offenses against the Buccaneers.
“I think that the hope of what Revis could bring (to the Buccaneers) is it doesn’t matter if it’s Julio Jones or Steve Smith or Marcus Colston. We can play that way and not adjust (because of the wide receiver lined up)” said Dungy. “If that happens, that this is a great move.”
