Tampa Bay Buccaneers Darrelle Revis tells Seattle Seahawks’ Richard Sherman to stop talking


For the past year, defensive back’s Darrelle Revis and Richard Sherman have been attempting to one-up each other verbally.

However, now a Tampa Bay Buccaneer, Darrelle Revis has had enough of the back and forth, telling the Seahawks’ Richard Sherman to stop talking and to no longer attach his career to Revis’.

Per USA Today:

“I don’t have to prove nothing to nobody,” Revis told USA TODAY Sports. “I put my game on film, and people can see the results.”

Don’t you at least have to prove something to Richard Sherman?

Revis laughs.

“He needs to quit attaching his career to my career,” Revis said. “A lot of people need to have respect for this game. I’m not just talking about him. Respect what people have done to pave the way. Deion paved the way. Rod Woodson paved the way. Darrell Green. Mel Blount. Champ Bailey. Charles Woodson. Yeah, we’re the next group, but you don’t need to be getting into it with me.

“At the end of the day, this is a fraternity. We’re all in this together, competing. But you don’t have to shoot nobody else down.”
