Darrelle Revis sharing inside Jets knowledge with Buccaneers

Hardly anyone has more inside knowledge about the New York Jets than Tampa Bay Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Since being traded from the Jets, Revis is imparting that information to his new colleagues in Tampa Bay.

"It's just one of those things, when a player comes from another team, [offensive coordinator Mike Sullivan] is asking a couple of questions about [Jets'] defense and what are the base calls, I spill them," Revis said. "I'll spill the beans and let him know what we used to run and let him know what things coach [Rex] Ryan might do. It's almost like stealing a little bit. That's what you've got to do. You take the information and pass it to the offensive coordinator."

Revis was amused to hear that Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith said he hasn't watched any tape of him to prepare for his first NFL start.

"I don't understand why he didn't study me because I will be on the opposite side," Revis said. "But I don't know what their game plan is or what their preparation is and personally, I don't know what Geno's preparation is. But I would hope that if you're playing against another opponent, you should study everybody on the opposing team. If that's the case, that's the case. I'm studying him. Just to let him know, I'm studying him. I guess we'll just leave it at that."
