06:22 PM ET 07.02 | When the Tampa Bay Buccaneers ended the season, they couldn't have been in a lower place. After starting string under new head coach Greg Schiano, the team imploded under its own young weight and they ended up with the 13th pick in the NFL Draft. But while they could have drafted a young star for the future with that pick, they instead elected to trade for Darrelle Revis in the hope that he recovers from his ACL injury and becomes the best cornerback in the NFL once again. According to NFL Network, the Buccaneers still expect Revis to be ready to start week 1 against his old team the New York Jets. The Buccaneers have expected Revis to be ready all along otherwise they would not have pulled the trigger on the trade that landed him in Tampa. Last year was an abysmal season for the Buccaneers' secondary which ranked at the bottom of the NFL. It was for that reason that they decided they needed Revis and so far the gamble is paying off.

The Buccaneers expect Darrelle Revis to be healthy week 1. They're not so sure about weeks 2-17.

They should have kept the pick and grabbed the cb from Alabama, Milliner.

Revis is valuable even as a decoy. However, I'm sure he'll be ready for the season.

Schiano is still trying to find that perfect way to stop a kneel-down. He needs to go back to college, probably CUSA. Unless he remembers he'ws in the NFL, he'll be gone by Christmas.

I wonder if he wakes up in a cold sweat after dreaming he was still in NY.

Not only does he wake up in a cold sweat, he pulls a hammy while getting out of bed.

Has he started holding out yet?

Let me guess.... Schiano ?
