Darrelle Revis will play his first football game in almost a year when he returns to game action to face his former team in the New York Jets.
The buildup for the ball game has been coming ever since the Jets traded Revis to the Buccaneers this spring.
Ty Law is a former stud cornerback who had success in the NFL, and he’s also a mentor Revis. According to ESPN New York, Law ripped the Jets receivers, and said the organization as a whole is not worthy of playing against Revis.
“I don’t think the Jets team or the receivers are even worthy of him coming out for this game,” Law said in an interview with Sports Illustrated video. “He could’ve had the bad knee and covered these guys. He should sit out this game and wait to make a real splash.
“He is absolutely the best and wants to play the best, and I think you’re going to get the best out of him if he respects the other guy,” Law continued. “But I don’t think he respects anybody on the Jets and then — you never know — what are they even playing for? I mean, they’re the type of team that might wanna get [him] hurt or try to take him out or something like that. So, I wouldn’t even play him because they’re not worthy.”
