Jets Insider: Revis thinks Beckham ‘went too far’

Odell Beckham Jr.’s outburst in the Giants’ loss to the Panthers on Sunday raised the eyebrows of Darrelle Revis.

It didn’t sound like the Jets’ cornerback — who missed the chance to face Beckham a few weeks ago when Revis was out with a concussion — liked what he saw out of the second-year wideout.

“Personally, I feel (that), yeah, it was a little bit too far,” Revis said on CBS Radio Monday. “The way he reacted, Odell Beckham, it was pretty out there. It was a lot. It was a lot.”

Revis added, on SiriusXM, that he was surprised that no one was ejected from the game. Beckham has been suspended for one game by the league.

Jets coach Todd Bowles decided not to foray into the controversy. In fact, he said he hadn’t even seen the highlights. “I heard everybody talking about it but I actually didn’t see it,” Bowles said. “I haven’t seen anything on it yet, but you know, (it’s) not my fish to fry.”


Chris Ivory is hoping for a ticket to Hawaii.

Despite not keeping up the torrid pace he set in the beginning of the season, Ivory is in the Pro Bowl conversation in 2015, and he knows it. Ivory’s 951 yards on the ground this season has him ranked sixth in the league behind Adrian Peterson, Doug Martin, Todd Gurley, Jonathan Stewart and Latavius Murray. There are six Pro Bowl spots available for running backs. And on Tuesday Ivory will find out if he’s one of the six. “That would be nice,” Ivory told The News. “But, I mean, it’s more of the fans (voting). I feel like I’ve played at that level … if it was more the other teams we’ve played and (people) in the league (voting), I think I’d definitely be (there).”

Fans, players and coaches all vote for the Pro Bowl, with each contingent making up one-third of the equation toward which players make the cut.

The running back was speaking before his paltry 37-yard performance against the Cowboys, but he’s still closing in on his first 1,000-yard season as a pro.

So does Ivory thinks he deserves to go to the Pro Bowl?

“Yeah,” he said.

Ivory has always been a bruising back, but this season for the first time he was his team’s No. 1 back. In the past, he’s always had to split carries and never exceeded more than 833 yards in a single season. He has never been to the Pro Bowl. “I work hard. I put a lot of work in in the offseason and during the season. I played through a lot, nicks and bruises,” Ivory said. “I think I’ve worked to get into the position I am now.”


X-rays on David Harris’ back came back negative, Bowles said Monday, confirming that he only suffered a back bruise in Saturday’s 19-16 victory over the Cowboys. Harris, who is critical to the Jets’ defense, is day-to-day … CB Dee Milliner (hamstring) and TE Kellen Davis (back) are also day-to-day.
