Report: Patriots approach Darrelle Revis about contract extension
|08.06.14 at 6:30 am ET|
According to Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole, the Patriots have had initial discussions regarding a contract extension for cornerback Darrelle Revis following his impressive play in the early part of training camp.
Revis signed a reported two-year, $32 million deal with the team in March after being released by the Buccaneers. The second year is a team option that includes a $12 million roster bonus, something it’s unlikely the Patriots would commit to.
“What I’m hearing from the Patriots is that Revis has been so good so far that they are privately already starting to talk about extending his contract,” Cole said in a video at Bleacher Report. “The Patriots like what they see so much — they think they see the next Ty Law and that shutdown cover corner to really get their defense going — that they’d like to extend him out. Robert Kraft, the owner of the team, has pulled Darrelle Revis aside and started to talk to him to see if they can get a long-term deal worked out.”
