Darrelle Revis doesn’t hold ill will or want payback vs. Jets

Darrelle Revis

The Kansas City Chiefs are hoping to get back into the win column in any possible way they can as they hit the road to take on the New York Jets in Week 13. The visit to MetLife Stadium is, by all means, a business trip.

It is also essentially a return home for newly-acquired cornerback Darrelle Revis. Although his tenure with the Jets did not end in spectacular fashion, Revis does not hold any sort of grudge against his old team.

Via ESPN’s Adam Teicher:

“We have a long history … I had an awesome time there,” Revis said. “We had our runs, our AFC championships back to back that we missed out on. Great guys, great teammates that I’ve been around there. Most of my legacy was with the Jets so I don’t think it’s anything [personal]. I’m just on another team. This is my fourth ball club throughout my career and now I’m focused on our team goals and what we’re trying to do as a team and accomplish. For me personally, I don’t think there’s any ill will or anything to take a stab at or get back at the Jets for any reason.”

Revis was originally drafted by the Jets with the 14th overall pick in the 2007 NFL Draft. It was not long before Revis quickly rose to become the league’s premier shutdown corner during New York’s deep playoff runs.

However, Revis’ price became too much for one team to handle, so he enjoyed brief tenures with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New England Patriots before returning to the Jets.

After being released following the 2016 NFL season, Darrelle Revis then took a brief hiatus before finally joining Chiefs, where he is now set to make his 2017 NFL season debut in the place where his career had started.
