The Patriots officially announced the signing of cornerback Darrelle Revis on Monday and the new Patriot spoke to the media on a conference call.
Revis said that he and Bill Belichick have spoken about Revis calling the Patriots coach a jerk in 2012 when Revis was still with the Jets and that bygones are bygones. Revis said he’s excited to play for the coach now that the two of them are aiming for the same goal. That goal is a Super Bowl title, which Revis called the primary motivation for his decision to play for Belichick and the Patriots.
“My thing is all about winning. I want to win. What better organization than the New England Patriots to be a part of?” Revis said, via Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com.
Revis will be well compensated as he tries to win with $12 million coming his way this season. Next year will bring either $20 million, free agency or a long-term deal from the Patriots and getting a ring next season wouldn’t hurt his payout in either of the latter scenarios.
