Darrelle Revis was a member of the Patriots team that is accused of deflating footballs in the AFC Championship.

He won a Super Bowl with that team.

He spent one year in New England then went back to being a New York Jet.

Revis said, “Everybody’s blowing it up because it is Tom Brady. I understand that. But if (the NFL) feels he did the crime or he did something and they want to penalize them, then that’s that. (The Patriots) have a history of doing stuff. You can’t hide that.… Tom was there when they did that stuff in the past.”

Spoken like a true New York Jet.

Revis continued: “When stuff repeatedly happens, then that’s it. I don’t know what else to tell you. Stuff repeatedly happened through the years. You got SpyGate, you got this and that and everything else. Obviously in those situations in the past, they had the evidence. So they did what they needed to do.”

Revis was not only defending the league’s decision to penalize his former team, but taking a shot at his own players’ union as well, saying of Roger Goodell: “He’s the judge, jury and executioner. Everybody signed off on it…. Why didn’t we stand up when it was time to stand up? You can talk about it after the fact, but we all agreed to it. So (the union’s) got to point the finger back at (the union).”

Revis has a point there — it’s the players union that agreed long ago to allow the commissioner to have absolute power and hear all appeals if he chooses.
