The NFL is a small world. If you don’t believe me just ask wide receiver Jason Hill who signed with the Denver Broncos in February and was with the team through the end of preseason before being released.
With the season-ending foot injury to New York Jets receiver Santonio Holmes, the Jets decided to bring Hill aboard. This is the same Jason Hill that called the Jets and Darrelle Revis “overhyped” while he was with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
“I think sometimes they get overhyped. I talked to Drew [Coleman], Drew played there. He says it’s just the aura of New York. They got a big media. That’s not the Jacksonville paper, that’s the big New York Times paper so they get more pub. That’s what it is. It’s a game that we all play. He been playing the game, Revis, just as long as I’ve been playing. This is a game full of good players making plays. He just made a lot more plays on TV than we’ve made being here in Jacksonville. He’s a good player. We respect him. Hopefully he respects us because we’re going to bring it just like they’re going to bring it.” – Jason Hill (Florida Union Times)
“I don’t even know who that dude is. What’s his name again? I have no clue. – Darrelle Revis (Newark Star-Ledger)
Now everyone will get to know each other very well thanks to the ‘here-today, gone-tomorrow’ NFL world.
