Now that Tom Brady and Darrelle Revis are on the same team, the two best players at their respective positions can now stop worrying about having to face each other on the field. Here is what Revis said on the subject:

Revis and Brady have had their battles over the years, but now they can focus on working together to bring a championship back to Foxboro. The Pats have lacked a strong secondary for the last six or seven years, but with the addition of Revis (and Brandon Browner), Brady might have enough defense to get back to the big game.

As of right now, save for Seattle, I think New England has the best secondary in the league. Just by adding Revis that group got elevated up, but when you combine that with the signing of Browner, you get a truly elite unit.
