When Darrelle Revis agreed to a six-year, $96 million deal with the Buccaneers back in April, he probably didn't know what he was signing up for. At the time, Tampa Bay was believed to be a playoff team. But through the first eight games of the 2013-14 NFL season, they don't have a single win. And truth be told, they haven't even been competitive in most of their games. Meanwhile, Revis' former team, the Jets, is 5-4 on the year and surprising a lot of people with their play so far this season.
Revis isn't mad about it, though. In fact, when someone hit him up on Twitter yesterday and asked him whether he would rather be making $16 million with the Bucs and losing or making $12 million with the Jets and winning, he didn't hesitate to keep it 100 percent real with the person:
@Jason_Owen naw 16 is better— Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) November 4, 2013
Revis hardly tweets—his last tweet prior to this one came back on October 15—so it's a little bit strange to see him say this on Twitter. But apparently, all the money he's making with Tampa Bay is making the losing bearable. At least, for now. Check back with him in a few weeks if the Bucs still haven't won a game. We bet he'll change his tune.
