New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees believes that signing cornerback Darrelle Revis has given the Tampa Bay Buccaneers a new confidence.

Drew Brees has said that bringing in Darrelle Revis gives the Tampa Bay Buccaneers more confidence.

The NFC South side, who face the New Orleans Saints this weekend, traded their first-round Draft pick to acquire the cornerback from the New York Jets earlier this year.

The Saints quarterback told reporters: "I think a confidence, just kind of knowing that you have a type of player out there that you can rely on for one side of the field to match up against a team's best guy, you can see him do that at times.

"It seems, obviously, there is no pre-season film on him. From this last game against the Jets, he was moving around quite a bit. At times he was off the field, so I am sure they were just trying to get him back into it.

"I'm sure they have a plan for him depending on who they are playing, the type of offense, receivers. For us, it's really, we know he's going to be out there, not sure exactly where, but just be aware of where he is at all times and understand the type of playmaker that he is."

The 28-year-old made just one tackle in his return from an ACL injury last week.
