ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting that the New England Patriots have not picked up the $20 million option for All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis.

We now know full well that the four-time All Pro will receive a long-term deal on the open market.
In addition to the Patriots, the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs are said to be interested in picking up one of the best cover guys in the NFL.
When Revis officially hits the open market on Tuesday, there’s going to be a ton of teams interested in his services.
Interestingly enough, the Patriots may have tipped their hand when they inked Devin McCourty to a huge contract prior to the star safety hitting the open market. Can the team realistically pay McCourty and Revis elite-level money?
Even at 29 and with eight years of experience, the former first-round pick has a ton left in the tank. He recorded 50 tackles with 16 passes defended and two interceptions during a tremendous 2014 campaign with the Patriots.
