Revis Island is back, and Darrelle Revis is taking no prisoners in his return.
Revis, who will make his debut with the Buccaneers in week 1 against the Jets, is tired of talking about who the cornerback in the game is, and fired some more shots at Seahawks stud Richard Sherman.
The $96 million man was asked if he had something to prove to Sherman? Revis told USA Today, that “Sherman needs to stop attaching his career to his.”
“He needs to quit attaching his career to my career,” Revis said. “A lot of people need to have respect for this game. I’m not just talking about him. Respect what people have done to pave the way. Deion paved the way. Rod Woodson paved the way. Darrell Green. Mel Blount. Champ Bailey. Charles Woodson. Yeah, we’re the next group, but you don’t need to be getting into it with me.
“At the end of the day, this is a fraternity. We’re all in this together, competing. But you don’t have to shoot nobody else down.”
Revis the king, had one more message for Sherman.
“You can’t crown yourself as anything in this league,” Revis said. “You’ve got to earn it.”
