Revis, whose recovery from major knee surgery is being documented by the NFL Network, started on the treadmill Monday. He ran unloaded, which means there were 45 pounds lifted off him. That will be reduced as his rehab continues. Revis hopes to start running outside in four to six weeks, conveniently right before the draft. If the star cornerback gets traded, it likely would occur close to the draft. He's also working on drills to stop, plant and change direction.It's a good sign for the sixth year veteran. Obviously the more pressing concern from a fan's standpoint is his contract and attitude about it but, from a more objective view, his health is also priority and it's good to see him returning to action even in a limited capacity.
“I want to be ready by training camp, be ready to play football," Revis said. "I believe in my talents. I think this was a bump in the road for me and I will get back to where I need to be, only because I know how competitive I am. I compete. I have done it my whole life, continue to do it and will until I am gone.”
In non-contract Revis related news, the All-Pro cornerback started the next phase of his rehabilitation this past Monday by running on a treadmill and working on drills to help his mobility.
