Darrelle Revis was drafted by the New York Jets. Darrelle Revis played seven seasons as a New York Jet. Darrelle Revis got an island names after him. Darrelle Revis knows what its like to play in New York.
While Darrelle Revis has not even played one single game as a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, he already knows what his career outside of New York will be like. Relatively pressure free. This is not to say that his new organization does not expect Revis to play at a high level, but the media hub of New York City is worlds away from Tampa Bay. Which is a good thing.
While his body of work and 96 million dollar contract creates enough pressure, he still feels that it will pale in comparison to what he experienced as a New York Jet. He told the Time:
“The organization’s great. It’s real laid back down there. It’s not a lot of pressure as it is in New York.”
We will see if this lack of pressure will help Revis, as he returns from knee surgery.
