Business manager: Now it’s official, Darrelle Revis is a Patriot

After news surfaced on Wednesday night that the Patriots would sign Darrelle Revis, his business manager said otherwise.

But now there’s no doubt: John Geiger, Revis’s business manager, confirmed on Twitter on Thursday morning that the deal is done and Revis is a Patriot.

“Now it’s Official,” Geiger wrote.

Revis is expected to make $12 million on a one-year deal with the Patriots. That represents a pay cut from the $16 million a year he was making on his contract with the Buccaneers, of which he played only one year. But it’s still big money, and Revis will be motivated to play well in New England this year and get big money from the Patriots, or some other team, a year from now.

    I work with a Bronco fan and yesterday he was happy, today I am happy.

    Very excited about this news. My question is that is there anything in the contract that prevents Revis from being franchised after next season?

    Revis is going to be HUGE on this defense.

    Belichick had this move under his hoody the whole time. He plays chess while the rest of the NFL plays checkers.

    Adding him is good, if Wilfolk can get healthy, more help. Broncos losing Decker, more help. Maybe they should check into Champ Bailey. Other side or safety.

    Enjoy spending 90% of your cap on a player who has 3 INTs in 2 seasons playing 18 games.

    Now Brady’s options will be limited to Danny “Granny-hips” Ammendola, Dobson, and Tompkins.

    Pats fans do your happy dance- your team is worse than it was last year.

    Now sign Browner or DRC for the other side

    When are the Patriots cuttin Aaron Dropson?

  13. puhleezho says: Mar 13, 2014 10:28 AM

    why did tampa cut revis?

  14. whatnojets says: Mar 13, 2014 10:30 AM

    ACL first day of camp.

    It’s comical to me when people refer to Revis’ low interception totals. Quarterbacks don’t throw his way, because he is usually blanketing his man. Isn’t this an easy concept to understand?

  16. purpleguy says: Mar 13, 2014 10:39 AM

    If I were a Pats fan, I’d take Revis over the injury-prone guy that just left.

  17. crindal3000 says: Mar 13, 2014 10:52 AM

    Is he going to play WR?

  18. jetsmmt says: Mar 13, 2014 10:55 AM

    Antonio Cromartie is better.

  19. idothis2 says: Mar 13, 2014 11:07 AM

    Pats need to worry. Revis will hold out prior to training camp…

  20. mrclaytonbigsby says: Mar 13, 2014 11:10 AM

    Who is Brady going to throw to?

  21. jacksonjames4 says: Mar 13, 2014 11:14 AM

    Cool, now Stevie Johnson can light him up two times a year again

  22. mayers59 says: Mar 13, 2014 11:15 AM

    There is a reason that Revis doesn’t have very many interceptions. QB’s don’t throw at him. He shuts down the person he is covering.
