Darrelle Revis To Jets: Bring Back Cromartie

NEW YORK (WFAN) — The cornerback combo of Darrelle Revis and Antonio Cromartie nearly led the Jets to their first Super Bowl in over forty years.

On Thursday, Revis told the Star-Ledger that he hopes the two can continue playing together in New York.

“I hope Mike Tannenbaum and Rex pull for the guy to keep him here,” Revis said.

“He played a big role in our defense and he helped out a lot, made a lot of plays.”

The controversial Cromartie, who separately popped off at Tom Brady, NFLPA leaders and Matt Hasselbeck last month, is slated to become a free agent once the NFL’s labor agreement expires.

Revis said he would talk to the Jets if asked, though he doesn’t know exactly what to say.

“That time has to come,” Revis said. “I have to see what’s going on with everything and what the situation is.”

While 2010 was a “positive” year for Revis and the Jets, he had his sights set on Dallas.

“We had a lot of positive things this year, but the icing on the cake is being here, winning; that would have made us very happy,” he said. “It just shows you how tough it is to get to the Super Bowl and actually win it.”

According to the Jets cornerback, consistency is key finally getting New York over the AFC Championship hump.

“We talk about it a lot, because that’s what we believe,” said Revis. “But also we’ve got to put the work in and be consistent in our play, and make sure we work hard to get there.”

    Need to bring him back,even though hes a loose cannon(1 on every team)they play off well each other and with a year in the system under his belt he will play much better.Gotta bring back Brad Smith & Holmes,if we lose Edwards I can live with that,because J-Co is more sure handed then Edwards.And if Welker wants out of NE im sure Rex would LOVE to have him.Its gonna be hard,we got 17 Free agents out there to sign.But if these guys wanna win a RING,they should sign for a lil less and stay here !! They would be HEROS 4 life if they bring a title to NY
