According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there is strong chance Darrelle Revis could end up in New England.
Patriots in a strong position to land Revis now, especially after Talib’s deal. Revis wants to be there. Will only take a 5th round pick

With the Pats losing Aqib Talib last night, adding Revis would be huge for them, and their defense. Revis is one of the best corners in the game, and his ability to lock down one side of the field is unrivaled in this league.
He will still be owed $16 million for next season, but if I was the Patriots, I would take that chance. When you have the opportunity to add someone like Revis for just a fifth round draft pick, you better take advantage, especially when you just lost an elite corner of your own.
New England needs to do something today, and trading for someone as talented as Revis would really improve the team’s outlook for the 2014 season.
