Landry: Adaptation equals success for Darrelle Revis

He may only have one year of pro ball under his belt, but Jarvis Landry already has a strong respect for Pro Bowl cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Landry, who faced the Pats only once last season, tallied nearly 100 yards on eight catches. He, like many other wideouts in 2014, however, struggled when covered by the veteran, hauling in only two catches for 18 yards.

“His game changes every game because he’s studying the receiver he’s going to face,” Landry said during's Top 100 Players program (Revis finished 17th). “His ability to adapt to that is one of the reasons why he’s one of the best in the league.”

Revis held some of the league's top offensive weapons -- Calvin Johnson, Demarius Thomas, divisional rival Sammy Watkins and Jets newcomer Brandon Marshall, to name a few -- to only one touchdown during his team's Super Bowl run, while allowing an average of around 50 yards per game in receiving yards.
