FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- Two days after telling Newsday he's not sure the Jets have done enough to help Mark Sanchez succeed, Darrelle Revis tried to backtrack Friday, saying that such things aren't under his purview.

"I don't recall saying that," he said when asked to clarify whether Sanchez needs more weapons around him. "The conversation was basically going over the offense and if we needed more weapons. It's not in my jurisdiction to even get into that because I don't make the team. Rex [Ryan] makes the team and Tannenbaum . . . That's nothing for me to really get into."

But when asked by Newsday on Wednesday if the Jets have done enough to ensure that Sanchez can be successful, the All-Pro cornerback said: "You've got to do what's best for the team, and I don't know if we've been wise in that department."

On Friday, Revis told reporters he feels good about the offense "as of right now."

"We've got to stick with the guys we've got here," he said. "These guys are capable of playing. We'll see. If a change comes, it comes. If it doesn't, it doesn't. Everybody's accountable to do their job on this team and that's what they have to do."
