Revis claims Moss put 'foot on the brakes'

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis isn't sure if he's going to suit up Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings.

So what?

Revis already is playing verbal bump and run with Randy Moss.

The New England Patriots traded Revis' archrival to the Vikings on Wednesday, setting up another potential showdown between superstars who have chirped back and forth for the past year.

The last time Moss ran a route against Revis, he blew by and scored a 34-yard touchdown with a gorgeous, one-handed grab in the end zone. Revis re-aggravated a hamstring injury on the play and has missed the two games since.

But in the second half of that Week 2 game against the Patriots, cornerback Antonio Cromartie held Moss without a reception. The Patriots, playing from behind, couldn't catch up and lost 28-14.

"In the second half, you could tell he was putting his foot on the brakes," Revis told reporters Wednesday at the Jets' facility in Florham Park, N.J. "I mean, everybody knows that's Randy. Sometimes he plays 100 percent. Sometimes he doesn't."

Revis called Moss a slouch in an interview with Deion Sanders during last season's playoffs because Moss gives up on plays too often.

"You can tell. You can see the effort," Revis said. "Playing football, you can see the body language and effort of people, if a guy's going hard or a guy is hesitant. That's the way football is. The truth comes out. You could see it in that game."
