Manish Mehta has a terrific insider's look at the way Darrelle Revis works out. It is worth a read. Here is a brief snippet.
Rex Ryan's defensive philosophy remains man-to-man, bump-and-run coverage, but Revis wants to polish every aspect of his game. So, the Jets' All-Pro studied players such as Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, who has thrived playing press and off coverages throughout his career.
"He wants to be a more complete player, one that is not limited to doing one thing all the time," defensive backs coach Dennis Thurman said. "He's probably the best press corner in the league, but he wants to be the most complete corner. Go back and look at Larry Bird and Magic and Jordan. They worked on something every offseason to get better. That's what the truly great ones do, because there's always someone coming after you. If you want to hold on to what you have, you got to continue to work and evolve as a player."
