Both Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Pro Bowl now know where they’ll line up when the game kicks off this weekend, and it will be a familiar feeling for both of them, as they’ll be on the same team once again.
Darrelle Revis will join Gerald McCoy on Team Sanders, coached by legendary corner Deion Sanders, after “Primetime” selected Revis during the Pro Bowl Draft on NFL Network.

Revis will join McCoy in rocking the “unconferenced” jerseys, which go with a bit of an Oregon look as you can see below.

Revis was the third corner selected, behind Patrick Peterson of the Arizona Cardinals and Joe Haden of the Cleveland Browns, despite being a better corner than either in a season spent recovering from an ACL injury. But considering that Gerald McCoy was passed on to select Jason Hatcher, it should come as no surprise that Revis would get slighted in this draft process, as well.
It’s a shame that Lavonte David wasn’t able to hear his name called during this draft process, but it will only be a matter of time before he receives the respect he has earned through his first two seasons in the NFL. But for now, Buccaneers’ fans can hang their hat on the two Pro Bowlers from Tampa Bay, and can happily root for Team Sanders on gameday.
