For many reasons Darrelle Revis is worth every penny that comes his way in 2015. The first reason is this years defensive backfield was the best in football. Secondly the Pats won their fourth super bowl in eleven years. The third and final reason is their is no one else available corner wise who can even come close to him. This years class is Cortland Finnegan, Darius Butler, Kyle Wilson, Ike Taylor and Brandon Flowers to name a few. Just reading those names alone is laughable when it comes to comparing their talents to Revis. Out of the group either Brandon Flowers or Cortland Finnegan are the best but don’t even come close. Finnegan and Flowers would not even be an upgrade.
Money wise compared to Revis’s salary of 2014 the Pats will have to break the bank and overpay for the services of Revis. Don’t be surprised if a five of six year deal is not reached anything less may be a costly mistake and could cost the Pats another championship. Compared to 2014 Revis is owed 12,000,000 dollars in roster bonus but look for that to change.Dead money wise the team is taking about 5,000,000 . Those numbers will most likely wiped out. Revis is a Pro Bowl corner that alone will bring significant dollars. All the factors signing bonus, Pro Bowl appearance, post season and roster bonus will come into play.Revis’s performance in 2014 was as good as advertised. He made everyone else around him better.
His teammates Devin McCourty and Brandon Browner may or may not be affected. McCourty is very dependable and makes big plays in meaningful games. Browner brought a much needed physical presence to the Patriot backfield in 2014. Granted he cost the team a lot in penalties but his physical agility is worthy of coming back. Thusday’s release of Vince Wilfork is just the beginning of necessary changes on the way to keep Revis in New England. Keeping all three in a Patriot uniform maybe a dream than a reality.
But when the start of the 2015 season kicks off in September a signed sealed Darrelle Revis will make the Patriots a favorite to return to super bowl fifty As history has showed us the Pats have gone out and signed high caliber players such as Revis before. Randy Moss, Cory Dillon and Richard Seymour are players the Pats signed long term and theresult was a trip to the super bowl. March 10th at midnight begins the quest for a trip to super bowl fifty.
