Darrelle Revis on Deflategate: Patriots 'have a history'

Cornerback Darrelle Revis has weighed in on the Deflategate controversy surrounding his former team, saying he’s not surprised the Patriots are at the center of cheating accusations.

Revis mentioned the Patriots’ past when it comes to skirting the rules, namely Spygate, saying they “have a history of doing stuff.”

“New England’s been doing stuff in the past and getting in trouble,” Revis said. “When stuff repeatedly happens, then that’s it. I don’t know what else to tell you. Stuff repeatedly happened through the years. You got SpyGate, you got this and that and everything else. Obviously in those situations in the past, they had the evidence. So they did what they needed to do.”

Mehta asked Revis if he thinks Brady is a cheater and he didn’t exactly offer a ringing endorsment of his ex-teammate, either.

“I don’t know,” he said. “I don’t care. It doesn’t matter. If people want to judge him as a cheater, that’s their opinion.”

However he feels, Revis got his Super Bowl ring. The Patriots and Jets don’t play each other until Oct. 23, so Brady (barring injury) should be back under center. Revis, meanwhile, isn’t endearing himself to New England fans since leaving, at all. Unlike his angry Instagram comments, doubt Revis can use the hacked explanation with these quotes.
