07:14 AM ET 11.12 | Darrelle Revis, who himself has clearly moved on, has a message for Jets fans who have not: Let it go. Fresh off securing his new team's first victory with a late interception Monday night, the former Gang Green All-Pro cornerback blistered "bitter" Jets fans in an exclusive interview with The Post for harassing him and threatening him on Twitter since his trade to the Buccaneers in April. "I get harassed every day on Twitter [by Jets fans], and I barely even tweet. And you just get tired of it," Revis said after Tampa Bay's 22-19 victory over the Dolphins at Raymond James Stadium. "You've got to have a backbone ... It's crazy, but I've been getting death threats from them since my first holdout [in 2010]. It's just bitter Jets fans."

If you're concerned, go to then police and report it, but complaining to the media?

I think he should abruptly leave, go into a facility for treatment and then go stay with his mother in California. He should then file a lawsuit against all Jets fans for bullying.

Every candy-butt liberal in the country will be defending him.

He is concerned about death threats via Twitter? First, who knew he could read? And second, would he prefer the death threats come from the barrel of a shotgun at his front door?

It's a shame that this "island" didn't go to the Phillippines over the weekend ...

I can't believe the fool caught that interception on 4th and 28, they would have have the ball on Miami's 14 or 15 yd line vs their own 40....

Thank God The Jets Dumped him, how many games has his new team won and which team is having issues with the coach and quarterback? SCUM IS SCUM !

they aren't paying him to think, just to react

Not crazy. You decided you weren't getting paid enough millions, so you put yourself ahead of the team. And you can't understand why people are angry at you, angry enough to come after you and kill you. Did you even finish third grade?

I'm not mad at him.Great player, but he needed to go.

He got injured, then traded... Not like he had much say so in the matter.

The Jets would have been better off with Browning Nagle.
