Darrelle Revis is believed to have visited the Dallas Cowboys as the former Super Bowl Champion & 7× Pro Bowler looks for a new home.
The Dallas Cowboys are in desperate need of a cornerback of the calibre of Butler, with the departures of their top CB’s Brandon Carr (Ravens) and Morris Claiborne (Jets) via free agency.
The 31-year-old is coming off worst year of his nine-year career, raking in just one interception to go along with five pass deflections.
The New York Jets decided to cut ties with the potential hall of famer just 2 years in his 5 year deal.
The New York Jets signed Revis to a five-year, $70 million contract with $39 million guaranteed before the 2015 season.
But, his form and a off field incident of where he faced four felony charges, including aggravated assault and terroristic threats, that stemmed from an altercation in Pittsburgh in February, was the last straw for the New York Jets.
Darrelle Revis, 31, was cleared of all charges by a Pittsburgh judge in the late night incident in his hometown. Now free to find a new team, Revis is understood to have visited the Dallas Cowboys and both parties were pleases with the meeting.
Revis would no doubt gain a starting spot in the Cowboys secondary that desperately needs work.
Revis could no longer demand his $14 million per season price tag and the Cowboys could sign Revis for half that amount, which could be an absolute steel, if Revis could rediscover his pro-bowl form.
Revis will enter his 11th season in the NFL after being drafted in the first round (14th overall) by the New Yorks Jets.
