Report: Darrelle Revis ‘Wants To Be’ In New England, Only Could Take A Fifth Round Pick

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there is strong chance Darrelle Revis could end up in New England.

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.

    Well, NE doesn’t have a 5the round this year… They can trade the 4th round one as I expect them to trade down form the first round anyway… I would like to see Pat Sims, Willie Young and Scott Chandler signed too to get depth and draft with more ease… Then the choice would be Sanders or Edelman. Maybe even getting Ed Dickson as flex TE with a one year prove-it deal…

    Robert Kraft is a cheap greedy man. He cares about the business not the game. He has no pride, agression (outside of making money) and no competitiveness (outside of making money). He should be the one buying Papa Johns franchises instead of Manning. Belichik can coach for any team he wants, why he would stay with a team that wont spend really makes me wonder if he has a secret commission on the profits of this team. Kraft is not only being cheap with his money, hes being cheap with the fans money. I know this sounds crazy but I strongly believe that the fans should get together (online somehow) and protest for their money by not going to a game and leave the stadium with empty seats, this may embarrass Kraft and remind him that we are the customers and its our money too!
