Welcome to Tampa! Twitter Response to Revis Trade

Darrelle Revis is going to get a warm reception from his new Tampa Bay teammates the first time he steps into the locker room at One Buccaneer Place.  He already got one on Twitter.

It is probably an understatement to say that Buccaneer players are thrilled with the addition of one of the NFL’s true superstars to their roster.  Hot on the heels of the Dashon Goldson signing, and with several prime picks in the 2013 draft still to be spent next week, the Bucs can legitimately believe that their playoff chances got a whole lot better on Sunday afternoon.

Not surprisingly, some of those excited Bucs took to everyone’s favorite social media platform on Sunday to react to the Revis trade, and to welcome their new teammate to the fold.  They weren’t alone in being drawn to the topic: At one point, Revis was one of the top trending Twitter topics in the world.  Pro Bowl DT Gerald McCoy, who likely has visions of coverage sacks dancing in his head, was one of the first to reach out to Revis, and other players around the league quickly reacted, as well.

NFL.com has compiled a short list of some of those reaction tweets. Check it out.

    I LOVE THE SIGNING THE FOLLOWING AS REVIS AND GOLDSON, NOW I THINK THE BUCCANEERS NEED FIND TRUE RUN STOPPER IN THE MIDDLE. THE OFFENSE NEED A VERY, VERY GOOD 3ND RECIEVER, AND TIGHT END YHAT CAN GET DOWN THE FIELD, AND MIDDLE. I THINK THE BUCCANEERS NEED SCORE 28 POINTS A GAME, GIVE UP ONLY 17. GO BUCS!

    WOW This just took us from one of the worst pass defenses to at least a top 10 pass defense.

  7. As a former Jets fan converting last year to root for the TB Bucs, because of the chaos going on in Jets Camp and Coach Shiano… I am now even more happier that I made the move because of all the off season moves, including the newest add… D. Revis..!!!!!

    Being from NY and also a Rutgers fan i’ve watched Revis play since he played against Ray Rice and coach Schiano, my ALL TIME FAVORITE coach for what he did at Rutgers(forever thank you!), while Revis played cb at Pittsburgh. The Bucs got first an AWESOME coach in coach Greg but an even better cb in Revis. He is the best! Give coach Schiano time to make the locker room and personnel his own and with his knowledge, he is a smart coach-ask Bellichick-the Bucs should take off. I agree with Major that the Bucs need a young tight end and a wide receiver. Tiquan Underwood, from Rutgers-i told you i’m a HUGE Rutgers fan-will be a good receiver for the Bucs meaning 60-70 catches a season but an additional speed threat would help. I was hoping that the Bucs could give up a 1st round pick in 2014 instead and then draft wr Tavon Austin this year because i, and coach Schiano, saw PLENTY of Tavon while he played at West Virginia vs Rutgers and that kid will be a superstar.
