They put it all on the line every Sunday. You may see them as Pro Bowlers, former first-rounders or million-dollar men. But for elite NFL athletes, there's more to life than just the game. As part of its fall Maverick campaign, Nike Sportswear is sharing some of their individual stories.
More than "The Island," Darrelle Revis has staked out bigger territory as one of the best cornerbacks in the game.
Maverick Attitude: "That style of play, Revis Island, is being tenacious and being physical out there."
Defining Moment: "Potential never stops. My high school coach always said, 'big players make big plays in big games.' That was a moment for me to take that opportunity and run with it."
Statement of Purpose: "I just want to be the best. Everything that I do and I touch, I just want to be the best at it and do it the right way."
