After Darrelle Revis’ words to the New York Post, former New York Jets guard Damien Woody took to social media to voice his opinion on the matter.
After spending an entire season making headlines in New York because of his poor play, Darrelle Revis made headlines in the New York Post Friday for his comments of how the Jets organization should treat him with ‘class’ this offseason. Former teammate Damien Woody caught hold of this article and took to Periscope to post his thoughts about Revis’ comments about the Jets organization.
Via Woody’s ten minute Periscope video, the former New York Jets offensive guard seemed to repeat a concept that we were all thinking, “What the hell are you talking about. I don’t get it.”
Damien Woody played with Revis 2008-2010 and started out the video rant by stating that Revis, “I’ve always said this about Darrelle. Especially in his prime, (he was) the best player that I have ever seen.” So there is no beef between the former teammates, Woody just took exception to the words Revis had for the New York Post.
Woody moved on from singing the phrases of Revis to completely ripping what he had to say regarding the Jets treatment of him and his situation heading into this offseason.
Treating it with class? What do you mean? Football is a cold business. (Football is) purely results driven, doesn’t matter who you are.
Although the words may seem harsh, they are absolutely true. Woody goes on in the video to question Revis’ effort and courage this season. Revis shying away from tackles and giving up big plays may all be associated with the aging process. Even Darrelle Revis himself has made references of slowing down due to age.
To the tune of Damien Woody’s point, many stars have come and gone, been traded and even outright released because football is a business. Darrelle Revis should understand that more than anyone, as he treated the Jets like such throughout his career with two holdouts during his Jets tenure. The NFL was here before Revis and will be around after he is gone.

“When you’re not playing up to par, you don’t get to call the shots anymore,” Woody added. “Father time is undefeated. He holds the championship belt.”
Under these guidelines, Revis doesn’t get to dictate how this offseason goes, and he shouldn’t.
