The Tampa Bay Buccaners have made it clear that they will be parting ways with All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis. Rumors have been swirling as to where the shutdown defender will end up. A source close to Revis indicated that he’ll be a member of the New England Patriots upon being cut.
Manish Menta of the New York Daily News reported a member of the Revis camp, when asked if he thinks the corner will end up on the Patriots, said “It’s going to happen.”

If the Patriots are able to workout a deal with Revis, he’ll most certainly be an upgrade over Aqib Talib. Bill Belichick and Revis also have a close relationship with one another. The duo could potentially help New England retuturn to elite status.
