Darrelle Revis has some advice for Aaron Rodgers if he ends up leaving the Green Bay Packers for the New York Jets … telling the future Hall of Fame QB “come in humble.”
TMZ Sports spoke with Revis amid the rumors that Rodgers could be on the move … and the former NFL cornerback seems receptive to #12 joining his old squad.
The Jets have emerged as a possible destination for Rodgers if he does, in fact, decide to continue his career elsewhere … but the NFL world is waiting on the QB to figure out what he wants to do.
Revis — who starred for the Jets from 2007-2012 — admitted NYC is a tough market, but he says Rodgers would be able to “weather the storm,” adding he can be successful right away.
37-year-old Revis said he thinks Rodgers — who won a Super Bowl with the Packers in 2011 — would be a tremendous addition to the weapons the Jets already have.
“I believe he has weapons at every position,” said Revis, a 7x Pro Bowler. “As Jets fans. As Jet lovers. We can see some high-scoring games. We can see some big victories.”
“Having a superstar quarterback in Rodgers, he can definitely put points on the board very quickly which would help the defense rest much better and they can be more explosive.”
