Darrell Revis tells 'bitter' Jets fans to 'let go' of the fact he no longer plays for them

Miami Dolphins v Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Darrelle Revis says Jets fan can't accept the fact that he no longer plays in New York.

Revis told the New York Post that Jets fans are still "bitter" about him taking more money and signing with the Buccaneers. And those fans have expressed their displeasure by sending Revis threatening messages and harassing him on Twitter.

“You’ve got to have a backbone, because guys are saying, ‘F–k you!’ and ‘I want to kill you!’ It’s crazy, but I’ve been getting death threats from them since my first holdout [in 2010]. It’s just bitter Jets fans,” Revis said.

Last week, Revis responded to a Jets an who asked whether Revis would rather have the $16 million contract he has with 1-8 Tampa Bay, or the $12 million deal he has with the 5-4 Jets. Revis said he would rather have the extra money and stuck by the statement.

“They’re still not over the fact that I’m not there no more, and they give me crap all the time on Twitter,” Revis said. “If they would understand the business of it and understand what happened, then maybe they would know and maybe they would quit trying to point the finger at me. That’s where it is.”

Lastly, Revis said he has no regrets over the situation at all.

“No regrets at all,” Revis said “Definitely no regrets. I’m fine. I’m going to make plays regardless of where I play. It doesn’t matter where I play.”
