Sounds like Darrelle Revis may have a man-crush on his new Jets teammate, Tim Tebow. Revis recently spoke out about all the little intangibles he feels Tim Tebow provides.
“He’s a born leader, he really is,” Revis said Wednesday. “Very few athletes have the gift he has. He tries to lead by example all the time. He tries to be positive, which is awesome, and that (has resulted) in his success on the field.”
In case you think Revis is just being a good teammate and parroting out a soundbite, he goes even deeper with his observations.
“I don’t know. Some people have it, some guys don’t. It’s the passion within, wanting to be a leader, wanting to win. You see it all the time, eating lunch, walking down the hallway. You see it.
“He’s like that cartoon character Zeus (sic). He’s one of those guys. He’s very positive. He has passion for whatever he does. You can see it on him.”
Sounds like Tebow’s effect is already taking place and we haven’t even started training camp.
