Business manager claims no agreement has been reached between Pats and Revis

Multiple reports have emerged that the Patriots have agreed to terms with cornerback Darrelle Revis.

But there’s an interesting caveat.  John Geiger, the business manager for Darrelle Revis, had this to say via Twitter:  “As of now, nothing has been agreed to with Revis and Patriots.”

It could be semantics.  Still, until the deal is signed, the deal isn’t enforceable.  Revis could back out, if for example another team offers more than the one-year, $12 million deal that the Patriots reportedly have been offered.

Few are doubting the reports that a deal is in place.  But it makes sense to keep an eye on the possibility that the situation will fall apart; until a binding contract has been executed, it can.

    Hard to believe both Schefter and Breer would screw this up.

    Probably semantics.

    Well… he’s already showing up on the Patriots DL with “knee” …

    Yeah, Geiger’s his “business manager.”

    Ha.

    12 mil is a fantastic deal for the best CB and WR on the Patriots!

    He didn’t realize Schiano was there…Revis got right back on the plane when he seen schiano.

    Yeah they should bind in a 6 year deal for like a hundred million. That would surely never get unbound. What could possibly go wrong besides like 5 things only? Just look the man in the eye at the time of signing and say hey look no funny stuff now and you have to play like a superstar the whole time ok? Revis – Sure no problemo.

    Mevis.

  13. pftfollower says: Mar 12, 2014 9:38 PM

    Of course they haven’t signed yet. I bet more teams would’ve jumped into the fray had they known he could be had on a 1 year $12 million dollar deal.

    Now they know. Let the good times roll.

    Still ain’t getting that Roger Goddell money!

  15. sdelmonte says: Mar 12, 2014 9:46 PM

    Revis is already holding out!

    One man does not a championship bring. *cough* Peyton manning…

    to all you Ravens fans commenting out there, I would call cheating letting Ravens players do helmet to helmet hits all game in the playoffs, including their murdering former LB, and Pollard, the dirtiest player in the game.

    Media trying to tweet too fast getting sloppy. Clean it up.

  19. wrdtoyrmama says: Mar 12, 2014 10:23 PM

    I’m just relieved I don’t have to read through 50 posts of Whiner and Squawk kiddies going at it….

    But anyhow, so it begins in New England for Revis. I’m sure this is just a bump in the road and the last we’ll hear from Revis before the Pats raise the trophy…..

    The Patriots had about $15m in cap space as of last night, so that means they’ve got $3m left this off-season if the Revis deal goes through. With that cap space, all they’ve done is replace Talib’s production with Revis, but they have not otherwise improved their team.

    The Revis signing also means they can say goodbye to Edelman — not enough money left to keep him. Bill better pray for a heck of a draft or they’re toast next year.

    that’s what agents and “business managers” always say until the physical is passed and both sides sign the contract

    get all the sugar cubes!

  25. taintedsaints2009 says: Mar 12, 2014 11:14 PM

    they release him too?

  26. clipper222 says: Mar 13, 2014 9:06 AM

    What are the pats accomplishing with Revis??? Blow all cap space on one corner, who has not done much the past 2 seasons, and leave Brady to throw to Danny “Granny-hips” Ammendola, Dobson, and Tompkins?

    What about the DT/NT, WR, RB, ILB?

    This franchise is in a complete nose-dive. They’ll still compete as long as they have their HOF coach and HOF videographers though…
