Darrelle Revis calls time in New York 'unbelievable' after trade

By Will Brinson | NFL Writer

The Darrelle Revis trade out of New York is done. The most notable member of the Jets is headed to Tampa Bay to try to improve one of the worst passing defenses in the NFL.

Revis' time in New York wasn't without contention; he had a pair of holdouts (one prominently featured on HBO's Hard Knocks) but he was an outstanding player on the field and a fan favorite. The feeling was obviously mutual -- following the trade, Revis tweeted a statement telling fans his time in time in the Big Apple was "unbelievable."

For as much of a circus as the Jets have become over the past two years, they certainly had some good memories with Revis around. The team made the AFC Championship Game in Rex Ryan's first two seasons and had a dominant defense thanks to Revis' presence on the roster.

I wouldn't bank on Jets fans cheering for him in Week 1 when the Bucs come to town, but I also wouldn't expect Jets fans to root against Revis in Tampa Bay. He's a fan favorite, and his statement showed he feels the same way, even if things ultimately didn't work out.
