Go behind the scenes with New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis as he recreates two iconic photos of Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath.

Behind the images we have two masters of photography: Gregory Heisler and Walter Iooss

“It was a pretty spectacular shoot,” director of photography Brad Smith said. “I mean, we got to recreate a cover from 50 years ago that we did on Joe Namath on Broadway. It was a terrific cover then, it’s a terrific cover today with Darrelle Revis. It was a really good cover to recreate because it’s iconic. You just have to get the right player to go along with it, and Revis was that guy.”
