(TAMPA, Fla.) — Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis cleared the air with head coach Greg Schiano on Wednesday after reports surfaced that the Pro-Bowler was unhappy in his new home and wasn’t a fan of the coaches schemes.
Revis had a one-on-one meeting with Schiano on Wednesday.
“I just wanted to make sure we were on the same page,” Revis said. “Those things in the paper do get out, rumors here and there. I just wanted to make sure. I wanted to talk to him personally, to say, ‘Hey, just to let you know, I don’t know if you know or if you believe it or not,’ just to make sure he saw me.
“It’s a tough time for this team. We’re 0-2 and we don’t want any distractions, so we want to focus and prepare for the team at hand each week,” he continued.
Schiano didn’t read too much into the reports, but said it was great to see Revis come up and address the issue.
“That was very brief and very nice of him to come up,” Schiano told the media Wednesday. “It wasn’t necessary. There’s a lot of stuff floating around, I guess, and he said, ‘Coach, I just want to set it straight.’ It was good to see him but really not necessary. It was good that he came up. It wasn’t requested. It was on him.”
The Buccaneers will take on the New England Patriots (2-0) on Sunday.
