Darrelle Revis juggles football and ... reality show?

NEW YORK -- Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis might have missed out on being on a reality show when he was absent during his team's appearance on HBO's "Hard Knocks" this season, but that doesn't mean he couldn't find himself on the small screen one day.

If he does, it will hopefully be in a more positive light than he was portrayed on "Hard Knocks," on which he was vilified for missing training camp while holding out for a new contract. If Revis did a reality show, he said it would modeled after "Rob & Big," a show on MTV 2006-'08 following pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek and his bodyguard, Chris Boykin.

"You know, because you have to have entertainment," he said Tuesday night at the "So Kodak" launch, headlined by hip-hop artists Drake and Trey Songz, at the Best Buy Theatre in New York. But "it wouldn't be a dating show, none of that stuff."

Along with the reality TV idea, Revis is focusing on fashion. He currently sells T-shirts for his own line Loco S. Star, which Revis co-founded with his uncle, Sean Gilbert, and designer Javier Socorro two years ago. Revis hopes one day to expand the line to watches, hats and jeans.

For now, Revis is all football. He returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since injuring his hamstring in the second game of the season.

"It's going very well. I'm doing all I can do," he said. "I've been running, just been rehabbing, so hopefully the doctors clear me to play on Monday night [against Minnesota]."
