Before the Bucs hit the practice field in New England Tuesday their General Manager was making news.

Mark Dominik told ESPN's Sal Paolantonio that Darrelle Revis, whom the team had pegged for on-field duty in the regular season opener, could be ready sooner.

"We may want to get him on the field Week 3 of the preseason, get a few series in," Dominik said.

Revis in previous statements had issued caution about the Week 1 (regular season) date, making Dominik's announcement somewhat suprising.
