Darrelle Revis took a one year vacation to winners row and won himself a Super Bowl ring with the Patriots that Brady and company help provide, and also cashed in during the 2015 NFL Free Agency in a big way to go home to losers row New York Jets.
He’s back to his old ways, not coming to Brady’s defense and being 100% against the Patriots again.
In an interview with the New York Daily News, Revis was asked about Deflate Gate and Brady’s punishment.
“Everybody’s blowing it up because it is Tom Brady,” Revis told the Daily News Wednesday in his first extended comments on the Deflategate fallout. “I understand that. But if (the NFL) feels he did the crime or he did something and they want to penalize them, then that’s that. (The Patriots) have a history of doing stuff. You can’t hide that.… Tom was there when they did that stuff in the past.”
He also believes because of the Patriots history with Spygate, it played a role in this punishment for the Pats and Brady.
“New England’s been doing stuff in the past and getting in trouble,” Revis said. “When stuff repeatedly happens, then that’s it. I don’t know what else to tell you. Stuff repeatedly happened through the years. You got SpyGate, you got this and that and everything else. Obviously in those situations in the past, they had the evidence. So they did what they needed to do.”
Revis also says he believes they should not overturn it unless they see something new that suggest he did not do it instead of overturning it simply because of who Brady is.
“If I fail a drug test, then I fail a drug test. If I get a DUI, I get a DUI,” Revis said. “If Tom gets caught with a DUI, it’s a DUI. …. If they are saying that he did what he’s done, then the suspension is the suspension. I’m not the commissioner and don’t make the rules. If they want to change (the suspension) based on new information or new evidence, then okay, but it should have nothing to do with Tom being the face (of the NFL).”
Revis also mentions he doesn’t want to hear the NFLPA complain that Goodell has too much power in these hearings now, when they could have stopped that before hand.
“He’s the judge, jury and executioner,” Revis said of Goodell, who danced around whether he’ll recuse himself for the Brady appeal when asked at the league meetings in San Francisco on Wednesday. “Everybody signed off on it…. Why didn’t we stand up when it was time to stand up? You can talk about it after the fact, but we all agreed to it. So (the union’s) got to point the finger back at (the union).”
I always thought Revis didn’t enjoy being a Patriot nor felt like one, this just convinces me even more he never did. It was a nice little break from being on bad teams to being on a good one. It was also the chance to prove he could still play so he could get his money.
Good riddance Revis.
