When the New York Jets traded Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there were a lot of salty fans who were less than thrilled with Revis’ antics that lead to him being dealt.
It seemed like a good marriage on the surface, but Revis wanted an insane amount of money – money the team wasn’t willing to spend on a player who seemingly found himself injured quite often.
Revis wasn’t exactly happy with the slight and the two eventually parted ways, which seemingly worked out better for the Jets who are sitting at 5-4 and in the thick of a playoff race while the Buccaneers are currently win-less on the season.
That doesn’t seem to bug Revis though, who told a fan on social media he’s much happier with the $16 million dollars and playing under Greg Schiano than he would be under the $12 million he was getting with the Jets under Rex Ryan:
Fan: Back in the good old days, @Revis24 played for a team that mattered. Wonder if 12MM per and Rex as coach has any merit vs Schiano & 16MM
Revis: nah 16 is better
