When you ask Darrelle Revis questions, you’re likely to get very honest answers.
That was the case Thursday when the New York Jets cornerback joined ESPN2’s “First Take” as the talk show made a stop at Jets training camp.
Revis was asked about his now-former teammate, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady. Revis, like just about everyone else, is ready for the whole Deflategate saga to be over. However, he says Brady should be the one who ends this whole thing once and for all.
Here’s a transcript of Revis’ comments, via The Washington Post.
?I think it?s dragged a little too far, it?s a little too much. I feel he got the suspension, the four games, and, you know, live with it.
?I don?t know all the information, I don?t know everything about the whole situation. But Tom, I know he?s a competitor. He wants to win, and it?s unfortunate what?s going on right now with the situation.
?We?ll see Wednesday how this pans out, but overall, I think it?s dragged on a little bit too long, with the whole DeflateGate.?
Revis hasn’t shied away from the Deflategate news since he signed with the Jets in the offseason. Revis said in May that the Patriots “have a history of doing stuff.”
Revis’ teammate, Antonio Cromartie, also appeared on the show Thursday, but he actually supported Brady while simultaneously criticizing NFL commissioner Roger Goodell.
