The New England Patriots and owner Robert Kraft love what they are seeing from Darelle Revis and are working to keep him around longer.
The Boston Globe via Jason Cole of Bleacher Report is reporting that the Pats and Revis have already started the ground work on a new extension.
“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 to Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe. “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.”
The Patriots signed Revis to a two-year, $32 million deal in March. The second year of the deal is an option and could allow the star cornerback to hit the free agent market once again.Powered by Sidelines
