The New England Patriots and Darrelle Revis’ managements are believed to be in deep discussions and a reunion seems likely.
Malcolm Butler looks destined to join the New Orleans Saints as he visited the Saints last Thursday and a deal is believed to have been struck, leaving a position at cornerback.
Darrelle Revis, 31, was cleared of all charges by a Pittsburgh judge in a late night incident in his hometown. Now free to find a new team, after the Super Bowl champ was release by the Jets in this offseason.
It is understood that the Patriots have immediately made contact will Revis and his management and asked of the possibility of a Foxborough reunion.
In the 2014 season, Revis, was arguably the best cornerback in the business. Revis’ ability to consistently shut down the best wide receivers was a huge reason why the patriots became Super Bowl Champions.
Revis later signed a mega contract to return to New York Jets after the Super Bowl. After two seasons the Jets released Revis as in 2016 he was a liability for the Jets as he was far from his best in that season.
Revis island was no more, instead of quarterbacks fearing him and throwing the ball in the opposite direction, in 2016 opposition quarterback were actually targeting Revis and winning.
Both the Jets and Revis agreed on that they both needs fresh starts and a return to coach Bill Belichick could be what the veteran needs to become one of the elite shutdown corners once again and they would get him at a fraction of the cost.
Revis will enter his 11th season in the NFL after being drafted in the first round (14th overall) by the New Yorks Jets.
The reunion just makes sense and it seems likely to happen from what we have been told.
