Jets' Marshall swings at Revis

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Jets stars Darrelle Revis and Brandon Marshall got testy during training camp Friday, with the two jawing and Marshall taking a swipe at the cornerback.

Revis and Marshall talked trash throughout practice, and things appeared to come to a head when the receiver caught a pass. The former UCF star then yelled at Revis, who was lining up for the next play, and hit Revis' shoulder pads with an open-handed swipe.

Teammates quickly diffused the situation before it escalated, but the two continued to exchange words. Revis opted not to speak to the media after practice.

"I beat him two times in a row and then on the third one, he swung and hit me in the face," Marshall said. "And I just told him, 'Don't ever put your hands in my face again like that.' And he kind of baited me to do it, and I did it. Kind of went too far.

"But again, that's part of camp and part of competing."

BRADY SPEAKS: Tom Brady says his decision not to pursue his appeal of a four-game suspension in the Deflategate saga was "a personal decision." The Patriots quarterback spoke for the first time at training camp. He is allowed to practice and play in preseason games but will miss the first four regular-season games. "I tried to come out here and just focus on what I need to do to get better and help our team," he said. "I'll be excited to be back when I'm back."
