Tom Brady wasn’t really relieved when Darrelle Revis was traded out of the AFC East to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brady, who has faced Revis on many occasions when facing the division-rival New York Jets, will have to travel to Revis Island again this Sunday when the New England Patriots take on the Bucs.

Brady is always complimentary of his opponent, and paid Revis the highest honor when said that he's “never played against anyone as good as Revis.”

“He looks like the same,” Brady said. “There’s nothing negative about his playing style, there’s nothing negative about his skill set. He can really do it all. He’s fast, he’s quick, matches up against small guys, matches up against big guys. He’s really long, he’s really strong, he’s patient. Some guys you really guess all the time and sometimes you guess wrong, he never guesses wrong. He’s smart, he sees the whole field.

"I’ve never played against anyone who is as good as him. He’s as good as there is that I’ve ever played against, so you just have to be careful when you throw his way because you know he’s going to be close.”

Brady may have been in a complimentary mood, because he went on a rant about good corners.

“I mean there are some great corners I’ve been able to play against: Champ Bailey, Patrick Surtain, and that goes back a few years, but yeah Charles Woodson, I mean I love the way he plays the game still. But I mean Darrelle is certainly at the top."
