Buccaneers | Coach expecting Darrelle Revis to be 100 percent
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said the team is expecting CB Darrelle Revis (knee) to be 100 percent for the start of the season but will be prepared if Revis is not fully recovered. "That's how we're planning," Schiano said. "I mean, we have faith that he's gonna recover. And look, if it isn't exactly that way right away, then we'll adapt. 85- or 90 percent of Darrelle Revis is still better than most 100 percent other corners, right?"

Buccaneers | Coach not ruling out Mike Glennon starting
Tampa Bay Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano said he believes QB Mike Glennon can play quickly and has not ruled out the possibility of Glennon taking over the starting job over QB Josh Freeman. "We have a starting quarterback. It's not like we're looking to find a starter. But competition is competition. Mike Glennon is a fierce competitor. I knew that when he was coming out of high school. Now being able to work with him a little, you can see it on the practice field," Schiano said.

Buccaneers | Mike Glennon not taking a back seat
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon is not going to take a back seat when it comes to competition with the team. "First I just want to be a good teammate," Glennon said. "I'm going to be a good teammate to all the guys, to the quarterbacks, to the line, to everybody. And earn the respect that way and kinda take everything in and listen to what they have to say. But at the same time, I don't know if taking a backseat would be the right term because I'm a competitor and I'm going to do whatever I can to compete. So at the same time, though, I understand I'm a rookie and it's a process, and I'm just going to worry about getting better each and every day and let things play out that way."

Buccaneers | Da'Quan Bowers apologizes for off-field issue
Tampa Bay Buccaneers DL Da'Quan Bowers apologized for an off-the-field issue that resulted in his arrest, before charges were reduced. "There is no right way to make a mistake," Bowers said. "I just apologize to the fans and the organization that I put in that (position). I apologize to my family. … That's not what I'm about. That's not the type of person that I am. I appreciate (general manager) Mark (Dominik) and the Glazers and Coach (Greg) Schiano for being with me through this whole situation."
Buccaneers | Da'Quan Bowers wants to improve
Tampa Bay Buccaneers DL Da'Quan Bowers knows he can do more on the football field, something he hopes to show in 2013. "It's not only injuries, but (my) play. I haven't been the dominant player that I know I can be," Bowers said. "I have a lot of potential to be one of the best and the elite at what (I) do, and I haven't shown that at this level yet. (It was) injuries and not understanding what was going on. It takes time to mature at this level. I think my maturation process is going on now and a lot of it has already passed. So, I'm just looking for an opportunity now."
