Darrelle Revis signs deal with New England Patriots

Published Add your comment

No sooner had the rumours started that Darrelle Revis was heading back to the Eastern seaboard, they were confirmed. But not how you think.

The BC who was cut by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers earlier today didn't make the trip to New Jersey as predicted to sign for his former team, the New York Jets.

Instead, according to ESPN and Adam Schefter on Twitter, Revis has headed towards Boston and to the New England Patriots.

Revis has apparently signed a one-year deal with the Pats worth $12 million.

Whilst Revis can be a bit of a loose cannon, his talent is never under any doubt, although his commitment has been.

But this season sees a lot of interdivisional play for the Pats who will be playing against his former Jets and the Miami Dolphins. Both teams that the Pats struggled against last year.

Could Bill Belichick be making another master stroke by brining Revis in? He certainly has the record and experience of both teams in a defense that has been desperately needing a player who can turn it on at any point.
