Revis, 29, has put together an impressive first year in New England, which could result in another impressive contract for the six-time Pro Bowler.

In 2014, Revis recorded 47 tackles, two interceptions, a forced fumble, a recovery and 14 pass defenses over the course of 16 games. Pro Football Focus has Revis rated as the No. 4 cornerback out of 108 qualifying players.
