Revis practices with Buccaneers for first time

By  | 

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) -- Darrelle Revis is a three-time All-Pro and generally regarded as the best cornerback in the NFL, yet Tampa Bay's $96 million man was nervous before his first training camp practice with his new team.

The seventh-year pro took the field Thursday for the first time since tearing the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee with the New York Jets last September and since the big offseason trade that brought him to the Buccaneers.

Although he was limited to mostly defensive and position drill work, Revis considered the day a significant step forward in his recovery.

Revis says he didn't sleep well Wednesday night "not really knowing what the outcome" was going to be on the first day but says "it was awesome to be out there ... playing football."
