New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has revealed that he actually considered retiring in 2012 after he blew-out his knee.
Still on top of the NFL world, he was so distraught that walking away was an option in his mind.
Via Rich Cimini of ESPN:
“I did think about retiring,” Revis told Sports Illustrated in a cover story released this week. “I had never been seriously injured before, and I didn’t know how to handle it.”

Long story short, he didn’t retire. In fact, he’s now back where he belongs with the New York Jets.
The Jets will open up their 2015 NFL Training Camp on Thursday, July 30.
