Happy Revis has clear the air meeting with Schiano



Darrelle Revis met for 15 minutes with Greg Schiano in his office at One Buc Place Tuesday to clear the air about reports he was unhappy with the Bucs head coach and the team's defensive scheme.

Revis told Andrea Kremer of NFL Network that he was happy being in Tampa and playing for Schiano and wanted to do anything he could to help the Bucs get their first win. He sought Schiano out after his normal treatment session at the team's facility.

Revis  posted a quick comment on Twitter to assure his new fans he's happy being in Tampa.

"Just to clear the smoke. I'm happy to be a Buccaneer & I'm happy to be a resident of Tampa," Revis wrote to his 374,000 followers. "I'm excited for this year & I'm excited about this team as we move forward to prepare each week to get a W!!!"

Fox Sports reported Revis was unhappy with the comparaby strict Schiano after playing for the Jets' Rex Ryan and the New York Post repoted Revis wanted to play more man to man coverage.

The Bucs (0-2) lost on last second field goals in defeats to the Jets and Saints. They play at New England Sunday.

Revis was featured in 'A Football Life,' on the NFL Network Tuesday in which Kremer spent the past 50 weeks documenting his recovery from a torn left ACL and subsequent trade to the Bucs.

Revis tweeted during the broadcast, 'On to a new chapter!!!
