Patriots sign Revis

Posted:

Yes, it's true Patriots Nation - Revis Island is now in Foxboro.   Cornerback Darrelle Revis and the Patriots have agreed on a one-year deal worth $12 million.  The move was first reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter.  

Revis, who would've made $16 million with Tampa Bay, was cut by the Bucs Wednesday before the 4pm deadline that would have seen the Bucs owe Revis $1.5 million in a roster bonus and also upgraded a 4th round pick to a 3rd round pick to the Jets as part of their trade last season.

UPDATE: The signing became official Thursday morning.  The deal becomes a 2-year, $32 million contract with Revis getting $12 million in 2014 - $7 million of that would count on the Patriots salary cap for this season.  The Pats have a $20 million option on Revis for 2015 and will have $5 million more count against the cap as the bonus is spread out over two years.
