Darrelle Revis goes up against Lions star wideout Calvin Johnson on Sunday in Detroit, and there will be plenty of respect from the Jets' cornerback. And a little humor, too.
"He's a great receiver, big, physical and he can run like Forrest Gump," Revis said. "That was a joke. That's not in a bad way, so don't write that in a bad way. He's fast. In the movie, Forrest Gump was fast. I respect him as a receiver."
Revis and Johnson were first-round picks in the 2007 draft, so Revis has kept up with Johnson's career.
"I really know about him," Revis said. "He's been making a lot of plays over the years."
