UPDATE: Pats Extend Revis
The Patriots have added a second, $20 Million year to Darrelle Revis’ new contract
This move is interesting, to say the least, and I’m thinking that a verbal agreement to extend the deal was made last night, when the original, one year contract was signed.
The additional year a team option, and it is likely the Patriots will not keep Revis on the books for 20 Million next year, even if he wins DPOY AND a ring in 14′. This additional year does take away the Patriots right to tag Revis in 15′, an idea that was extremely appealing when the contract details and the lack of a no-tag option were revealed to the public. If/when the Patriots do not agree to sign Revis to the second year of his contract, Revis will become a free agent.
But lets not worry about next year already, the season hasn’t even started yet!
