Bill Belichick.

That is all. The legendary coach was able to sign Darrelle Revis to a one year, $12 million contract today, in what is definitely the biggest free agent signing in Foxboro for quite some time. There had been rumors for the last couple of days that Revis would come to New England, and they apparently were true.
