49ers WR Randy Moss Praises Fallen Jets Cornerback Darrelle Revis

San Francisco 49ers veteran wide receiver and future Hall-of-Famer Randy Moss put aside his competitive differences when asked about New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who suffered a torn ACL on Sunday and will miss the rest of the 2012 season. He gave the All-Pro defensive back nothing but praise when asked about his former AFC East adversary:

"I know that's a big blow to their organization. So hopefully he recovers well and comes back strong next year. Like I said, I've always been a fan of Darrelle Revis. I've always put him in the upper echelon of cornerbacks, if not the best cornerback in the league. Like I said, that's a big blow."

The two players go back to when Moss was a member of the New England Patriots and Revis was with the Jets. As No. 1 wideout and defensive back, the two became very familiar with one another. In eight matchups with Revis, Moss recorded 34 catches for 487 yards and five touchdowns.
