Jets Offseason: Darrelle Revis Says Rex Ryan Didn't Have A Feel Of Locker Room Troubles

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis told NFL Network in an interview that head coach Rex Ryan did not have a feel of the Jets locker room and was unaware of the discontent that was brewing among some of the players (via New York Daily News).

"After the season, we talked," Revis told the NFL Network on Thursday after the AFC Pro Bowl practice in Hawaii. "Basically, he didn't know a lot of things that were going on behind the scenes. It was just so much stuff. I'm really not going to get into it because some of the stuff is real deep. But he didn't know a lot of the things. He wanted people to say things to him. But obviously it didn't come out. It came out on the field (late in the season)."

Revis thought that the discontent was going to be settled during the season.

"This past year was very frustrating for not just me, but for the team as a whole," Revis said. "There was a lot of stuff going on... behind the scenes that I figured we would have (fixed) it (at the time). Then everything would have been cool and we could have moved on. Obviously we didn't. The season kind of spiraled late during the season."

After what happened, Revis says he still supports Rex Ryan and his quarterback Mark Sanchez. With Ryan, the support seemed to come with a bit of a caveat.

"We're behind Rex," Revis said. "If he says the Super Bowl, that's cool. That's why we play this game. But if we're not winning games, then I think we need to figure out ways to win games instead of just out there talking and just saying whatever you want to say."
