Darrelle Revis decided to tweak his Joe Klecko compliment

With Joe Klecco and Darrell Leavis inducting into the Pro Football Hall of Fame this summer, things could get a little trickier.

What began as a sweet story about Kleco and Reavis’ interaction after they were both inducted into this year’s Hall of Fame is that the former Jets cornerback felt the need to add to what Kleco told him. became.

Paul Andrew Esden Jr. posted a video of Kleco talking to ESPN Radio’s Jake Usman about how excited he was to be enshrined in Canton with fellow Jets legends.

“I told him [Revis] I told him when we were out for the Super Bowl, “This is going to be New York West for a day,” Klecco recalled. “After that we had to sit down and Darrell didn’t say much. But the first comment we made was on Sirius Radio and he said, ‘ It’s just great to have Joe, who is the greatest defensive player ever to play for the Jets, and I join them.”

Klecco added: I mean, he and I both talked a little bit about it, what football means to either of us, and being in the Hall of Fame. And it’s going to be really cool. ”

Reavis apparently wasn’t as excited about the exchange as Klecko, replying about an hour after the tweet was posted.

“I don’t talk to people I don’t know very well,” Reavis responded on social media platforms. “And we didn’t speak on the basis that you said you were jealous of my success at the Super Bowl. Obviously, as a gentleman, I decided to say something cool about the headline.”

When he responded to a fan calling for him to “withdraw” his comments about Klecco, he didn’t stop there.

“I’m not walking backwards, I said what I said,” Reavis replied. “What I said is true, but it’s also true that I’m the greatest defensive player in Jets history. I don’t even know why this is a conversation.”

Reavis then tweeted It’s time to start your own podcast.

Assman suspects Reavis didn’t understand what he heard in the interview with Klecco.

“Klecco didn’t attack Reavis,” Asman tweeted. “He praised [sic] He talked about his greatness and how great it would be to have two all-time jets competing at the World Championships. @ProFootballHOF together! “

Reavis and Klecko are two of the best defensive players in a Jet uniform, without question.

A member of the prestigious New York Sack Exchange, Kleko was named the UPI NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1981, won the All-Pro First Team Award twice, and was named to the Pro Bowl four times.

Kleco became only the second player in NFL history to appear in the Pro Bowl at three different positions after switching to nose tackle during the 1985 season.

Reavis’ accolades are evident as he was given First Team All-Pro honors in four seasons during his first play with the Jets, was a seven-time Pro Bowler throughout his career, and won a Super Bowl with the Patriots.

In his 11 years in the NFL, he had 29 interceptions, 3 return touchdowns and 139 passes defended.

In the 2009 season, he topped the league with 31 passes defended.
