A day after the Daily News reported that a confidant of Darrelle Revis said the Jets cornerback “doesn’t want to play anymore,” Revis reaffirmed his intentions of remaining with the organization after this season.
“People talk and say these such things, but I don’t know. I don’t know who wrote the story and I don’t know where these sources come from,” Revis said Thursday in the Gang Green locker room. “It’s a down year. It’s a down year for the team. It’s a down year for me personally. But I’ve been in these situations before. … My focus is on the future of this football club.”
When asked specifically if he intended to keep playing football, Revis gave a telling answer.
“Um, I’m under contract until 2018,” he said. “So.”
The News suggested Wednesday that Revis take a pay cut for 2017 considering his shaky and inconsistent play this season. Revis is due $13 million next year, but he could instead agree to receive the $6 million in guaranteed money his contract affords.
When asked if he’d consider taking a pay cut for next season, Revis left the situation open.
“We’ll see what happens next year. We’ll see,” Revis said. “A lot of things going on, so we’ll see. We’ll figure it out.”
Revis was adamant that the discussion surrounding his decline in play this season has not been frustrating.
“People say a lot of things,” he said. “I don’t know any of these reports. I don’t know what source said this and whatnot. I’m playing football. That’s what I love to do.”
