Jets Cornerback Darrelle Revis Calls for End of Team Feuds, Says ‘Leaders Need to Step Up’

Jets Cornerback Darrelle Revis Calls for End of Team Feuds, Says 'Leaders Need to Step Up'Well, at least one New York Jets player wants the fighting to stop among teammates.

Darrelle Revis has been known for his trash talk, but now it is time for him to step up and take a leadership role. He has taken it upon himself to assemble a player's meeting to talk through everything that occurred over the course of the 2011 season, according to ESPN.com.

"When we come in there in OTAs, just have a player meeting," Revis told the NFL Network. "The leaders need to step up, talk to everybody in the building and say, 'Hey, man, this is our goal this year. This is what we need to accomplish.' Let's not get into the bickering or the frustrations, because it brings a team down."

Both former and current members of the Jets are talking about the split in the locker room regarding players such as Mark Sanchez and Santonio Holmes. Some things, coach Rex Ryan doesn't even know about.

"Basically, he didn't know a lot of things that were going on behind the scenes," said Revis about Ryan. "It was just so much stuff. I'm really not going to get into it because some of the stuff is real deep, but he didn't know a lot of the things. He wanted people to say things to him. But obviously it didn't come out. It came out on the field."
