An odd interaction between two NY Jets legends took place on Twitter on Monday when former Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis responded to a quote from an interview with fellow Jets legend Joe Klecko.
Klecko spoke with ESPN Radio's Jake Asman about how exciting it was to be enshrined in Canton with another Jets legend, even insisting that Revis told him at the Super Bowl about how cool it was that the "two best defensive players ever to play with the Jets" are going into the Hall of Fame the same year.
For whatever reason, Revis didn't take kindly to this comment, even if Klecko was supposedly quoting Revis. The future Hall of Fame cornerback responded with a pair of confusing and antagonistic tweets, seemingly taking umbrage with the notion that he and Klecko belong in the same discussion.
Revis insisted that he was "the best defensive player in Jets history" and that he only included Klecko in the discussion because he "decided to say something cool for a headline."
I don't know if Revis misread or misheard Klecko's comments, but it sure seemed as though the former defensive lineman was complimenting his fellow Jets legend. What a bizarre situation.

Darron Lee has a warrant out for his arrest
Former Jets linebacker Darron Lee is facing domestic violence and assault charges after being accused of beating both his own mother and the mother of his son.
Lee was originally arrested back in April and was reportedly set to appear in court this month. However, after failing to appear, a warrant has now been issued for his arrest.
The Jets originally drafted Lee with the 20th overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft. Lee would spend three years with the team before he was traded to the Kansas City Chiefs ahead of the 2019 season.
Tyler Conklin is very open to a Dalvin Cook reunion
Jets tight end Tyler Conklin made an appearance on Good Morning Football on Monday, and when asked about the possibility of reuniting with his former teammate, Dalvin Cook, Conklin responded positively.
"There's plenty of room. We've got room for whoever wants to come help us win a Super Bowl. Me and Dalvin were basically lockermates my first couple years (in Minnesota), and he was an awesome guy. I reached out to him because I was just curious, like are the rumors true? Is this actually possible?"- Tyler Conklink
Conklin and Cook spent four years together in Minnesota before the former left in free agency to sign a three-year, $20.25 million contract with the Jets last offseason.
Conklin is the second Jets player to publicly express support of a potential Cook signing in recent days. This past weekend, Garrett Wilson shared a similar sentiment when speaking to ESPN's Rich Cimini.
It seems pretty clear that Cook would be a popular addition to the Jets' roster.
