Revis: It would be ‘awesome’ to play for 49ers
Darrelle Revis is no longer singing the Jet For Life tune. In a revealing interview yesterday, Revis clearly has not left his heart in New York ... but would gladly leave it in San Francisco. Revis, in an Internet interview with Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson on “The Real Robinson Report,” sounds as if he has read all the handwriting on Woody Johnson’s wall that he needs to read, and would welcome a team poised to win a Super Bowl and pay him as much as $16 million a year as well. Revis sounded intrigued by the motion the 49ers could view him as the final piece to their Super Bowl puzzle. “Would it be awesome [to play for the 49ers]? I mean, yeah,” Revis said. “My main goal as a player, all of us as players in the NFL, is to hold that Lombardi Trophy up in the air and wear that ring. They definitely are a contender, and will be a contender for the next couple of years.” At one point, Revis was given the opportunity to deliver a message to his fans. “I’m rehabbing my butt off to get back ... Revis Island will be back on the field soon,” he said. “Just keep on supporting. I don’t know, we’ll see where my future leads to, if I’ll still be a Jet or not. “But it really doesn’t matter. “I just want to get back on the field and play football.” It really doesn’t matter? That, ladies and gents, is a far cry from I WANT TO BE A JET FOR LIFE. At another juncture, Revis agreed he has a chip on his shoulder in the wake of all the trade talk. “I’m a competitor,” he said. “I’m always trying to compete on or off the field. It definitely hit home, being one of the best players out there, and come to find out you’re being shopped, it really hits home.
