New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady saw Darrelle Revis in a New York Jets uniform several times. As he prepares to face Revis in a Tampa Bay Buccaneers uniform for the first time, Brady says Revis is the best cornerback he has ever played against, and he thinks Revis is just as good now, post-knee surgery, as ever.
“He looks like the same,” Brady said. “There’s nothing negative about his playing style, there’s nothing negative about his skill set. He can really do it all. He’s fast, he’s quick, matches up against small guys, matches up against big guys. He’s really long, he’s really strong, he’s patient. Some guys you really guess all the time and sometimes you guess wrong, he never guesses wrong. He’s smart, he sees the whole field. I’ve never played against anyone who is as good as him. He’s as good as there is that I’ve ever played against, so you just have to be careful when you throw his way because you know he’s going to be close.”
