Speaking with the Patriots team website on Monday, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he was “excited” about the acquisition of cornerback Darrelle Revis.

“I think everyone associated with the team and all of our fans throughout New England are excited about (Darrelle) Revis joining us,” Kraft said in video posted here. “He’s obviously the best, or one of the top two or three shutdown corners (in the game).

“We’re very happy he chose to play with our team,” Kraft added. “I think it’s a great tribute to our head coach, our quarterback and all the players on our team that he really had a choice to go anywhere he wanted and he chose to come here.”

Patriots personnel chief Nick Caserio called Revis a “productive player” who has had success in multiple systems.

“He’s been a productive player,” Caserio said. “He’s got good size, he runs well, he’s good at the line of scrimmage. He’s played in a couple of different systems and he’s been productive in multiple systems. He was productive when he was with the Jets, and he was productive last season down there in Tampa, so we’ll put him in the mix and see how his skills translate to what we’re doing, and see how it goes when we get him and we start working with him.”
