Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis gave Iman Shumpert some words of wisdom about defense recently that opened up his eyes.
"One of the things he was telling me was after you have a good year, the next year it's hard to get interceptions," Shumpert said. "You start cheating and doing stuff you wouldn't normally do just to get stuff. You have to understand as a good defender, if people...Read more »
