Here are Giants’ defensive ends Justin Tuck and Osi Umenyiora on the Darrelle Revis contract situation, compliments of ESPN New York:
Tuck: “Pay the man. Simple as that.”
“I’ll tell you the truth, some people don’t deserve what they’re asking for but he does…they should pay the man.”
Umenyiora:“I do know he’s probably the best cornerback in the league and this NFL, if he wasn’t performing, they’d cast him aside like he was nothing. So he’s outperformed his contract. Whatever they need to do they need to do, but they need to come to terms with that man. He’s a good young player he seems to be a good young man.”
“…they never have a problem kicking him to the curb when they feel like it. So whenever you feel like you’ve truly outperformed your contract like he has, he has a right as a man.”
I guess Revis has the support of fellow players and union members.
