Darrelle Revis Wants Antonio Cromartie Back; Picks the Pittsburgh Steelers

New, comments

Darrelle Revis appeared today in Dallas. Randy Lange has some nuggets.

"It would be very important," Revis said of having "Cro" back. "We need him. He’s made a lot of plays for us. But we’ll see. I don’t know the situation. I know he’s free but I hope we re-sign him because he’s a great corner."

As we all know, the Jets have plenty of free agents. Some will undoubtedly take priority over others. I am not surprised to see Darrelle make a pitch to keep his fellow corner, though.

"I think I’m going with the Steelers just because they have the experience," Revis said. "They’ve been there, done that. They’ve won two and the whole team has experience in being in the Super Bowl. I just think overall the experience of their team, you can see it. They go to the playoffs every year, they’re always close to the AFC Championship Game or going to the Super Bowl."

Could the Steelers being his hometown team be playing a role in the pick? It is difficult to say, but I think Darrelle has some very unique insight. He has played against both teams this season.
