Patriots Decline Darrelle Revis’ Option, Making Him A Free Agent

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that the Patriots are declining to pick up CB Darrelle Revis‘ $20 million option and he will now become an unrestricted free agent.

  • Charles Robinson reports that the Patriots will continue to negotiate a new contract with Revis, even though they declined his option.
  • Robinson adds that they’re not done talking and are still working on a new agreement.

Ian Rapoport reports that the Jets have “hit pause on their free agent pursuits” in the event Revis would be available.

Revis, 29, put together an impressive first year in New England and is in line for another massive contract.

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.
