While it remains to be seen if new Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith shares the sentiment, Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis said he’s excited about his future.

Revis tweeted out a welcome to his new coach this afternoon, saying he couldn’t wait to get started.

Of course, Revis has $16 million reasons to get along with Smith, whose defense doesn’t demand the kind of man-to-man coverage he’s best at, and which he griped about not playing enough of under Greg Schiano.

So sending out the Twitter welcome wagon to his new coach is not only the polite thing to do, but it makes plenty of economic sense for Revis as well.
