Darrelle Revis still has a bone to pick with the Patriots regarding the ring ceremony that was held last month at the home of owner Robert Kraft.
In an interview with Sports Illustrated, the former Pats cornerback said his mother flew to Boston to pick up his ring at the celebration, held at Kraft’s home in Brookline — he said he had planned a trip to Disney with his children. But Revis maintains that she was not allowed to attend the ceremony.
“If that’s how they want to do things, that’s fine,” Revis says. “I’m not going to waste my time on it.”
Revis addresses several other things in the story, including the fact that he initially thought about retirement following a torn ACL at the start of the 2012 season.
“I did think about retiring,” Revis said. “I had never been seriously injured before, and I didn’t know how to handle it.”
He also shared some of his feelings about his return to New York.
“I feel like I’ve been on the road the last two years,” he said. “I never wanted to leave. I’m coming home.”
Darrelle, your only ring you ever wear will have a Patriots logo on it, so enjoy that and never forget it. The guy acts like he did us a favor coming here. And by the way Darrelle, when you get invited to a ceremony with a +1, you can’t just send your +1 you dink! Maybe if you picked you the phone and actually talked to someone in advance there could have been something worked out. It wasn’t the Pats mistreating his mother it was him sending her into that situation. Enjoy your 5-11 season!
