Philadelphia Eagles’ wide receiver DeSean Jackson had some interesting things to say about the player most consider to be the best cornerback in football, Darrelle Revis of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

“I’m sure [Darrelle Revis] will follow me around,” Jackson told Phil Sheridan of ESPN.com Tuesday. “He followed me around when he was with the New York Jets two years ago. I’m sure his coaches are confident in him. But I don’t think he can run with me. I don’t think he’s as fast as me.”

Jackson even told reporters that Revis admitted as much to him back in 2011.

“He was like, ‘You’re too fast, slow down,’” Jackson said. “I’m just going to try to put my speed on him and stress on him as I can. I’ve got to do what I need to.”

Jackson, who has 28 receptions for 525 yards and three touchdowns so far this season, has never been shy about speaking his mind.  Jackson did, however, compliment Revis on his elusiveness, intelligence and foot work, going on to call him one of the best corners in the league.

The Buccaneers and Eagles will kick off at 1:00 pm Sunday.
