1authorrob3 - New York Jets: Darrelle Revis Won't Attend Pats Ring Ceremony (Report)It’s truly official now, Darrelle Revis is a member of the New York Jets.

According to ESPN, Revis has a prior engagement to attend that’ll force him to miss the New England Patriots upcoming ring ceremony. While Revis was with his former teammates to visit the White House, he won’t attend this Sunday’s ceremony at owner Bob Kraft’s house.

Prior engagement, huh?

It’s no secret that Revis has had a ton to say about Deflate-Gate and the Pats dirty ways.

Via Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News three-weeks ago:

“ have a history of doing stuff. You can’t hide that. … Tom was there when they did that stuff in the past. … Stuff repeatedly happened through the years. You got Spygate, you got this and that and everything else.”

So yes, we all believe the “prior engagement” talk Darrelle.

This ceremony has been a Patriot tradition ever since this new era of Patriots winning.1jets21 - New York Jets: Darrelle Revis Won't Attend Pats Ring Ceremony (Report)

Better than a half-assed, universally used excuse, Revis should’ve just stated the obvious – that he was that final piece that allowed Tom Brady and Bill Belichick to pick up their fourth Super Bowl Championships. Also, that they are cheaters, and he never signed off on the cheating.

This would’ve made for a better headline and a breathe of fresh air as it concerns honesty in today’s society.

Nevertheless, the real story here is that Revis’ heart is in New York. He loves this franchise and never wanted to leave to begin with. Sure, money talks, but take away an ACL and an owner concerned about holdouts and Revis would’ve been a Jet for his entire career.

The football season cannot come soon enough.
