NFL Network report on Revis is revealing

TAMPA - Most football players are four-gear athletes. That, at least, is how Todd Toriscelli, the Buccaneers director of sports medicine and performance, sees it.
Darrelle Revis is different.
Revis, Toriscelli says, is a five-gear athlete who is currently running in third gear as he works his way back from the celebrated torn left ACL injury that ruined his 2012 season.
That extra gear is one of the revelations that can be discovered while watching Andrea Kremer’s two-part report for the NFL Network on Revis, the cornerback whom the Bucs are now pinning a lot of their future hopes on.
Kremer was given exclusive inside access to Revis’ rehabilitation and workouts and also discovered during a chat with Bucs GM Mark Dominik that it was Week 3 of last season when Dominik first got the idea he could get Revis.
It wound up taking seven months, this year’s first-round draft pick and next year’s third-round selection to finalize the deal but Dominik says he knew the day Revis got hurt last year that he had a shot at landing him.
