Patriots Sign CB Darrelle Revis



According to reports from ESPN and other media outlets, the Patriots have signed free agent Darrelle Revis to a 1-year contract
Darrelle Revis was released by the Tampa Buccaneers just before 4 PM Eastern Time, a few short hours later Revis has joined the New England Patriots.

According to media reports, ESPN's Adam Schefter being the first, the Patriots and Revis have agreed to a 1-year $12 million deal.



The signing comes less than 24 hours after the Patriots lost out on signing Aqib Talib, who ended up signing a six-year $57 million contract with $26 million guaranteed. With the news the general feeling around New England is: Out with the old. In with the new.
Revis rejoins the AFC East just one year after leaving the division when he was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Revis was owed $16 million this season from the Buccaneers but the new coaching staff and front office decided it would be best to release Revis rather than pay him the guaranteed contract.

The deal in New England is only for one season, however NFL Network's Albert Breer is reporting that the plan is for the Patriots and Revis to eventually plan to work-out a long-term deal.

As a Colts fan, I'm pretty discouraged by the move. At least we get to see the drama unfold again next offseason!

Great move for the Pats. I've literally lost all respect for the dude after his camp seemingly tried to play the Jets against the Pats to drive up the price point.

How the Pats signed the holdout king of the world to a one-year deal essentially equivalent to the CB tag is bewildering.

NE better do it big in 2014 because Revis will be demanding $16 mill annually again next offseason.

Revis has turned himself into a pricey rental. Weird seeing the most proven CB in the game signing a 1 year prove it deal.

Damn! Haden/Revis would have been epic. And would have helped with jersey and ticket sales.

I think that Revis is looking to win now then go back to worrying about money. All reports are indicating that he and the Patriots are looking to work out a long-term deal, Ill believe that when I see it.

Either way this fills a huge need and the attitude around New England is the exact opposite of what it was 24 hours ago.

Man, it's a crazy thought to think he'll start worrying about money after a $12 million deal...

Must be pretty nice to be in such high demand. And with Browner visiting the Patriots too, the defensive backfield could be scary good

Man, I'll tell ya'. As long as they don't force Mallett down our throats, now that Weedens gone. I had that for a Haslam QB Competition of 90's Cowboy proportions in last year's Camp.

Well you don't need Mallett because Hoyer is already in position

It's interesting that Revis' deal is officially for two years, $32 mill. He's maniacally obsessed with that $16 mill APY. Can the Pats slap the franchise tag on him even if they decline his option next offseason?
They can not. If it stayed at one year they could but now that it is 2 they can't.

Also they worked it so this year's cap hit is only $7 million then next year is $25 million IF they pick up his option at the end of the season.

Hoyer wasn't everyone's choice. Kind of an interim enthusiasm guy. An ACL tear is a pretty extreme injury. It's not the MCL on the outside, that provides stability and balance. It's the muscle group at the very core of the knee, holding femur (thigh) and tibia (calf) together. Due to the severity of the injury Brian Hoyer's full recovery was never a sure thing. Please also keep in mind, that he was solidly third on the Depth Chart, and that the Chudd risked starting him over Jason Campbell, who was firmly entrenched at second, having earned it in Camp.
