Chiefs’ Darrelle Revis Says There Is No Extra Motivation To Play Jets
Despite his storied tenure with the Jets, Revis says there is no ill-will towards his former team.
“I don’t think it’s any extra motivation,” said Revis (h/t ESPN).
Revis spent 8 of his 10 seasons, over 2 stints, with the Jets organization.
“For me throughout my career, it’s always been about timing. I just felt where I was at in my training that I was fit and ready to come back and play football.”
“We have a long history … I had an awesome time there. 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 also talked about how Jets’ fans might receive him on Sunday.
“We will see,” Revis said. “It’s going to be exciting to see.”
