Earlier this week, Bucs cornerback Darrelle Revis said that he’s rather be making more money playing for the winless Bucs than making less for the playoff-contending 5-4 Jets.
Revis was slated to make $12 million playing for the Jets this year but in the offseason he was traded to the Bucs and signed a new deal calling for $16 million this season and $98 million over the life of the six-year deal. A fan tweeted at Revis, asking him if he was happy with the way things turned out.

The Redskins DeAngelo Hall made it clear that he was not in Revis’ camp on the question of money vs. team success. He was talking about some recent comments praising him for his play in what is a contract year for the 29-year-old cornerback.
"I don't want the 16 million dollars and no wins,” he said. “I want wins. That's where I'm at in my career."
Hall was slated to make some $7 million this year but he was released in a salary cap move. He was brought back a few weeks later for a contract worth $1.25 million.
