NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Former New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis apparently has no regrets about cashing in with Tampa Bay.
Revis says on Twitter that he’s happy enough making $16 million per year with the winless Buccaneers compared to the alternative.READ MORE: Suffolk County Police Officer In Critical Condition After Being Stabbed By Suspect Following Crash
“Back in the good old days when @Revis24 played for a team that mattered. Wonder if 12MM per and Rex as coach has any merit vs Schaino (sic) & 16MM,” a Jets fan from Jersey City, N.J. tweeted early Monday.
That prompted Revis to respond: “naw 16 is better.”
The Bucs have gone 0-8 since trading for the All-Pro and signing him to a six-year contract. Head coach Greg Schiano, who will be lucky if he makes it to January, reportedly isn’t too popular in the locker room — and that may be an understatement. Oh, and they blew a 21-point lead to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.
On the flip side, the Jets are 5-4 under player’s coach Rex Ryan. Their fans are starting to think playoffs coming off a huge win over the first-place New Orleans Saints. Not too shabby.

“Wow Revis You’re only looking for money arent you?” one person tweeted.
Another wrote: “Wow.. enjoy 0-8 pal.”
