According to Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald, the Patriots and CB Darrelle Revis have not discussed a potential contract extension and the two sides are not expected to broach the topic until after the season.
After the Buccaneers cut him loose several months ago, Revis quickly signed a two-year, $32 million contract with the Patriots. However, the deal includes an option for the 2015 season that will need to be exercised before the end of the year or he stands to make $20 million and count $25 million against their cap.
It’s hard to imagine any team keeping Revis around at that price, so it seems likely that the two sides will try to negotiate an extension that would offer some more cap relief and more team-friendly salary.
One other detail worth mentioning regarding Revis’ contract is that if the Patriots decline the option, they would not be able to use their franchise tag on him.
In 2014, Revis has recorded 21 tackles, one interception, a forced fumble, a recovery and three pass defenses over the course of six games.
Pro Football Focus has Revis rated as the No. 26 cornerback in the league this season out of 103 qualifying players.
