Darrelle Revis shattered any ideas that the Jets' locker room issues were a thing of the past.

The star cornerback made a series of promotional appearances on a variety of ESPN TV and radio shows Wednesday and talked about quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez. But his most revealing comments were about the dysfunctional Jets locker room.

On "SportsCenter," Revis was asked to play a game of word association. When the interviewer said, "Locker room," Revis gave a stunning reply.

"Disarray right now," he said.

The Jets had major chemistry issues last year on their way to an 8-8 season. Those issues boiled over at the end of the season. But Jets coach Rex Ryan has emphasized those problems are a thing of the past.

Now Tebow adds a whole new element to the Jets' chaotic existence.

"It was a circus, and it's going to be even more of a circus with him in the locker room," Revis said. "I'm not questioning his ability to play the game. He can flat out play the game, but it's just going to bring more to the locker room of every day: 'Does Mark need to start? Does Tim need to start?' It's going to just be an ongoing thing throughout the whole season."
