Devin McCourty on Darrelle Revis: ‘He’s a good teammate’

05.29.14 at 8:54 pm ET

FOXBORO — So far, Devin McCourty likes what he sees out of Darrelle Revis.

The Patriots have been going through OTAs this week — the third phase of the offseason program. And to this point, the veteran safety has been impressed by the play of Revis, who was acquired in March.

“He’€™s a good teammate. He works hard and it’€™s exciting for him to be here,” McCourty said Thursday during a break in the action at the team’s Mom’s Football Safety Clinic.

“I think it’€™s exciting for him to be here. I think he’€™s focused on getting better as a player, just like the rest of us. I’€™m excited for the season this year and for the secondary to start bonding and coming a unit. I think right now, we’€™re just a bunch of names, and this time — and then in training camp — is when we start to become a unit.”

Revis is one of a few new defensive backs on the roster to this point, a group that includes veteran Brandon Browner and rookie Jemea Thomas. McCourty said that the spring sessions have been “great” when it comes to building a bond with each other.

“I think this time period is great — the coaches can throw as much as they want from us, and [it’s] a learning time,” McCourty said. “I think they’€™re getting a chance to learn and having to learn on the go. Things are moving fast. I think they’€™re doing a great job. Along with them is the rookies — they come in and have their little rookie minicamp and now they’€™re here with us. More is being thrown at them. It’€™s exciting just seeing everyone out there learning and being back on the field running around.”
