Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis said Monday he plans to be the same player that he was before he was injured.

Revis was a three-time first-team All-Pro with the New York Jets before tearing the ACL in his right knee last season. He was traded to the Bucs in March and then given a $96 million contract with none of it guaranteed.

“The first time I step out there, I’ll be fine,” Revis said, according to NFL.com.

Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano said he agrees with that assessment.

“That’s how we’re planning,” Schiano told Kremer. “I mean, we have faith that he’s gonna recover. And look, if it isn’t exactly that way right away, then we’ll adapt; 85- or 90 percent of Darrelle Revis is still better than most 100 percent other corners, right?”

Revis says he now can cut and change directions in drills as his rehab remains on schedule.

“I call it just getting ready for Week 1,” Revis replied. “It doesn’t matter if it’s the Jets, the Bills, it doesn’t matter who it is. We go to go out there and play as a team and win.”

All,

I don't know why more athlete don't use a personal trainer on off season to stay strong and get stronger and healthier. As a personal trainer in Georgetown Washington DC and Northern Virginia (Arlington, Alexandria, Springfield, Old Town) area for last 25 years. Most of top athlete need personal trainers in off season to get stronger and feel confident. http://myur.com/ The other problem with athlete is they don't watch what they eat in of season.

I know as a trainer I am biased, but i don't know anyone that can't benefit from personal training.
