Former New York Jets tackle and current ESPN analyst Damien Woody ripped Darrelle Revis for his comments on class.Former New York Jets tackle Damien Woody ripped Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis on Friday for his comments about being treated with class.
In a locker-room interview with the New York Post, Revis said that he would like to stay with the Jets and suggested that they treat him with class.
On Friday, Woody ripped Revis in a ten minute Periscope video for his class comments. The video starts with Woody, who played with Revis from 2008 to 2010, saying that the cornerback is “the single greatest player I’ve played with.”
He then ripped his former teammate.
“What the hell is that, man?” he told ESPN. “He said [that] about the New York Jets treating him or his situation with class. Football is a cold business. It’s just purely results-driven. Doesn’t matter who you are.
“See, when you lose leverage, when you’re not playing up to par, you don’t get to call the shots anymore,” he added. “Your skills have eroded to the point where you’re expendable. To sit there and say like somehow the Jets are being disrespectful, I think is ludicrous.”
The ESPN analyst went on to ask Revis to help him understand what he was talking about when he said that the Jets should show him some class.

Revis, who is in the second year of a five-year $70 million contract with $39 million guaranteed, is obviously having the opposite of a great season.
The seven-time pro bowler has no interceptions for the first time since 2011, has been credited with only four defended passes and has allowed a quarterback rating of 109.8 when targeted — the highest of his hall of fame career.
The question now whether or not Revis will be with the Jets next year. The Jets would save $9 million in cap space and have $6 million in dead money if the were to cut him.
