Revis cleared to join Buccaneers in practice

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Darrelle Revis is expected on the practice field when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers open training camp.

The three-time All-Pro cornerback, who is the centerpiece of an effort to overhaul the NFL’s worst pass defense has been cleared medically to participate in some activities after missing most of last season with the New York Jets following surgery to repair a torn knee ligament.

The Bucs obtained Revis from the Jets in exchange for the 13th overall pick in the 2013 draft, then signed him to a six-year, $96 million contract.

Coach Greg Schiano said Wednesday that Revis “is going to do some stuff, but he isn’t going to do everything,” when practice begins on Thursday.
