NEW YORK (WFAN) — What a long, strange trip it’s been for Darrelle Revis.

The six-time Pro Bowler was drafted by the Jets in the first round in 2007 and starred for the team until 2012.

He was traded to the Buccaneers in 2013 and signed with the rival Patriots a year later, winning Super Bowl XLIX with New England.

Now the future Hall of Famer is back where it all started — having signed a five-year, $70 million deal with New York in March — and he couldn’t be happier.

“It was very important (to come back),” the star cornerback told WFAN host Mike Francesa on Tuesday from Jets training camp. “The Jets gave me a chance. They bumped up 10 slots to come get me in the 2007 draft. My heart has always been here, and always will be.

“When there was an opportunity for me to come back, this is where I wanted to end up.”

Revis will be part of a defense that should be formidable in 2015.

Despite Sheldon Richardson’s absence for — at the very least — the first four games of the season, the unit boasts such impact players as cornerbacks Antonio Cromartie and Buster Skrine, linebacker Davis Harris, safety Calvin Pryor and defensive linemen Damon Harrison, Muhammad Wilkerson and Leonard Williams.

“If you look at the roster, we’re stacked,” Revis told Francesa. “We have a lot of talent. We have a lot of depth across the board in all positions. I feel that, in the long haul, it’s going to help us out as a team.”
