The New England Patriots officially signed CB Darrelle Revis after he passed his physical Monday, March 17.
Huddle Up: The signing gives the Patriots the best secondary that they've had in many years. The only downside here is that improved corner play could mean lower game scores but then again the Pats have never been shy about rolling up a score anyway.

Updating a previous report, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are not actively shopping CB Darrelle Revis and teams are not making offers, but activity could increase as the beginning of the new league year approaches.
Huddle Up: An earlier report Tuesday suggested Revis would be dealt this offseason, but a sweetheart offer could definitely sway the Bucs and their new coaching regime.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis said former head coach Greg Schiano had an unhealthy work atmosphere, and other players called his defensive schemes 'a joke.' 'Guys didn't like coming to work,' Revis said. 'That's one of the things you have to have, a stress-free atmosphere and environment. You're going to get everything out of everybody if it's stress-free and let people be who they are.'
Huddle Up: Maybe a "healthier" work atmosphere will help the Bucs' pass defense get well as they gave up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing QBs, the 11th-most points to WRs and the 12th-most points to opposing TEs this past season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said the injury to CB Darrelle Revis (chest, shoulder) is not believed to be serious.
Huddle Up: It looks like Revis Island will remain open.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano indicated CB Darrelle Revis (groin) could be a game-time decision for Week 13. Revis is expected to test his groin before the game to see if he can play.
Huddle Up: The injury forced Revis to leave the Week 12 game in Detroit just before halftime, and he's subsequently missed both of the Bucs' practices this week. It might be tough for Revis to go on Sunday, and his absence of course would be good news for Steve Smith and his fellow Carolina WRs.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis (groin) is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his injured groin. The severity of the injury is not known at this point.
Huddle Up: This is potentially huge for that defense. Monitor his situation, especially if you were counting on that D/ST for some reason.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive coordinator Bill Sheridan said CB Darrelle Revis likely will cover Miami Dolphins WR Mike Wallace often during the team's Week 10 game.
Huddle Up: Revis is finally starting to play more man coverage, which isn't good news for Wallace owners. Wallace could be in for a tough night Monday. He's no more than a WR3 this week.

Updating a previous report, Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis met with head coach Greg Schiano for about 15 minutes Tuesday, Sept. 17, 'to clear (the) air,' after reports surfaced Monday, Sept. 16, that Revis was unhappy with the head coach's strict rules and style.
Huddle Up: The Bucs have lost their first 2 games by a total of 3 points, but the issues seemingly run deeper than that for the squad with safety Dashon Goldson's suspension, the questions about QB Josh Freeman's dedication and Revis' reported discontent. A Week 3 road win in New England, though, would go a long way toward curing all ills.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis is reportedly 'not happy' with the strict rules of head coach Greg Schiano since coming over from the New York Jets and the easier approach of head coach Rex Ryan. 'Schiano's rules are a little too strict for (Revis) after coming from (Rex),' writer Mike Garafolo said Monday, Sept. 16. 'Also, not playing enough man coverage.'
Huddle Up: Can things be souring already in Tampa? A few wins might change the atmosphere with the Bucs off to an 0-2 start after a pair of narrow losses.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis (knee) practiced in full Wednesday, Sept. 4.
Huddle Up: Revis will start on Sunday and it's just another reason why Tampa Bay's defense is a great play this week against a Jets' team debuting rookie Geno Smith at quarterback.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis should be ready to play for Week 1.
Huddle Up: This has been the plan all along for the Bucs and Revis, and while it would have been nice for him to get some preseason game work in so long as he's on the field for the start of the regular season all is good.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis (knee) is not expected to play in the team's third preseason game.
Huddle Up: There were some rumbling that Revis might try and play on Saturday but he isn't going to step foot on the field in the preseason. The Bucs don't really need Revis until the games count, so that's when they'll hope to see him return.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis has been cleared by team doctors for action in training camp. He will be held out of a conditioning test Wednesday, July 24, because he hasn't trained for it. However, he's expected to take part in individual drills but is unlikely to do 7-on-7 work.
Huddle Up: No reason for the Bucs to rush Revis back; they fully expect him to be ready to go for the start of the regular season.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said he believes CB Darrelle Revis (knee) will be ready for Week 1 of the 2013 season. "Revis looks good in his rehab," Schiano said. "He works incredibly hard. If I am a betting man, he is going to be ready."
Huddle Up: There's never been anything less than optimism over Revis' Week 1 status, and the newly acquired CB seems intent to hold up his end of the bargain.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said he believes CB Darrelle Revis (knee) will be ready for the start of the regular season but would not give a timetable for his return. 'Totally confident,' Dominik said. 'He's in great shape right now, he's running full speed, he's cutting, he's doing all the things we'd want him to do from a training standpoint, a rehabilitation standpoint.'
Huddle Up: Dominik hasn't had a doubt all along since swinging the blockbuster deal, and Revis looks as if he's on track to uphold the GM's faith.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers general manager Mark Dominik said CB Darrelle Revis (knee) will be ready to start in Week 1. 'One hundred percent he'll be out there,' Dominik said. 'Everything's on the right track in fact. I'm confident he will walk out the first day of training camp with pads on and go do work, so we'll be smart with him.'
Huddle Up: Dominik and the Bucs had to have confidence in Revis' knee, or it would've been a deal killer. In any case, no one really expects Revis will miss the Sept. 8 season opener against his former team, do they?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have acquired CB Darrelle Revis from the New York Jets after he passed his physical. The Jets will receive a 2013 first-round choice (13th overall) and a conditional fourth-round draft choice in 2014. The conditional pick will become a third-round pick if Revis is on the Buccaneers' roster on the third day of the 2014 league year. Shortly after, Revis signed a 6-year, $96 million deal with his new team.
Huddle Up: The daily drama and Revis rumor mill officially came to an end Sunday, as the Bucs finally made their move. Tampa did have to part with its first-round pick in Thursday's draft, but a healthy Revis will be more than worth it to a team which faces the likes of Julio Jones, Steve Smith, Roddy White and Marques Colston twice a season and ranked second to last -- trailing only the defenseless Saints -- this past season in terms of the most fantasy points allowed to opposing WRs.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have agreed to the compensation in a trade with the New York Jets for CB Darrelle Revis (knee). Revis has to pass a physical before the trade can be finalized. According to various reports, the Jets would receive multiple draft picks, including the 13th overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, from the Bucs.
Huddle Up: It's still not officially official, but provided the CB's knee checks out OK, it looks like Revis Island will be relocating to the Sunshine State.
