Tom Brady says Darrelle Revis is best cornerback he’s ever played against


Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis knows he’s good. So does New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, who spent many seasons battling with the talented defender as the two squared off in some epic AFC East battles.

Now with Revis in the NFC, the two won’t see each other much outside of their matchup this weekend and knowing that, Brady wanted to give the defensive back some praise, citing him as the most talented he’s ever played against.

Per Patriots.com:

There’s nothing negative about his playing style, there’s nothing negative about his skill set. He can really do it all. He’s fast, he’s quick, matches up against small guys, matches up against big guys. He’s really long, he’s really strong, he’s patient. Some guys you really guess all the time and sometimes you guess wrong, he never guesses wrong. He’s smart, he sees the whole field. I’ve never played against anyone who is as good as him. He’s as good as there is that I’ve ever played against, so you just have to be careful when you throw his way because you know he’s going to be close.
