Darrelle Revis would rather make more money and lose with Bucs than play for Jets
Darrelle Revis has had a quiet first season with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. A lot of that has to do with the fact that the team is 0-8 and could be the worst in the NFL. Some of it has to do with the fact that Tampa Bay has insisted on playing zone coverages when they have one of the best shutdown cornerbacks in the game at their disposal.
Whatever the case, Revis is perfectly content where he is. He signed a six-year, $96 million deal with the Bucs last year after being traded, which is far more than the Jets were willing to pay. Meanwhile, the Jets improved to 5-4 on Sunday with a win over the New Orleans Saints. Revis doesn’t seem to care.

Hey, at least he’s honest. We like to think professional athletes care more about winning than money, but that’s usually not the case. It’s probably not that difficult to lay your head on the pillow at night when you’re making $1 million per game, regardless of your team’s record.
