NFL players no longer consider Darrelle Revis the best cornerback in the league.
Revis was voted No. 37 on the NFL Network’s Top 100 list, which is voted on by players. Revis is the second New England Patriots player to make the list after tight end Rob Gronkowski was voted No. 41 last week.
Revis returned from a torn ACL, suffered two games into 2012, last season. A full season helped him rise 30 spots on the list — Revis was voted No. 67 in 2013.
Revis, playing for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, recorded two interceptions last season with 50 tackles and a sack. He was released by the Buccaneers in March and signed a one-year, $12 million contract with the Patriots.
Revis is the fifth cornerback to crack the Top 100, in front of the Miami Dolphins’ Brent Grimes, former Patriot Aqib Talib, Chicago Bears cornerback Tim Jennings and the Cleveland Browns’ Joe Haden. The Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman’s position on the list has yet to be revealed.
