Rob Ninkovich on Darrelle Revis: “We got the best corner in the league”

New England Patriots linebacker Rob Ninkovich sounds pretty excited to have Darrelle Revis on his defense now.

“We got the best corner in the league coming in,” he said, via ESPN.com. “That’s always a good thing for a defensive end like myself, just give me a little bit more time [with tight coverage] and I’ll be happy to use that.”

Ninkovich admitted he was surprised they were able to sign Revis.

“You can do whatever you want with him,” he said. “You can put him on the best receiver, tight end, whoever, and say ‘Hey, go cover this guy and he can do it.’ Whenever you have a guy that talented, it’s always great as far as defensive schemes and stuff like that.”
