Bill Belichick: I’ve been ‘impressed’ with Darrelle Revis
|07.24.14 at 11:36 am ET|
Speaking before the start of the first training camp practice on Thursday morning, Belichick said he’s been “impressed” with the former Jets and Bucs corner who was acquired as a free agent this past offseason.
“He’s worked hard; smart guy,” Belichick said of Revis. “Very professional. Has a good understanding of the game, he’s a smart player and he’s had a real good focus and instinct. He’s a smart player scheme-wise, but he knows how to play. He’s a very instinctive player.
“He played well at Tampa, he played well at the Jets, and then we saw him in the Pro Bowl. Now we’ve seen him ourselves for 13 practices and the time in the spring. But again, it’s a new year. He’s in a new system, so we’ll see how it all plays out. But I’m glad we have him on our team. I look forward to working with him more.”
