After being linked to numerous free agents for a couple of weeks already, latest news are saying that they are showing great interest in signing free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis to contract.
The New England Patriots had an amazing 2016 NFL season coming out as the Super Bowl champion. They've been one of the most successful franchise in this new era having won five Super Bowl title in sixteen years. Many say that their balance offense and defense had brought them to this distinct prominence and winning manner.

But others are saying that it's not bad to further reinforce their lineup by looking for capable players in free agency market. And one talented player that could be a big consideration is CB Darrelle Revis.
Last month, ESPN already reported that New York Jets decides to part ways with Darrelle Revis. The decision came after Revis failed to impress the Jets organization this season after registering one of his worst output in his career. Since then, it appears that no team is takers for the 31-year old cornerback veteran but recent reports are now spreading that he might head back to New England Patriots once again.
Darrelle Revis is not new in this scenario as the New York Jets, who drafted him in 2007, signed him back in 2015. And now, a second stint with the New England Patriots is highly plausible to happen for Revis. Though he only lasted for one season with the Patriots, Revis made some significant contribution to the team leading to his first Super Bowl appearance and a championship as well.
And from the looks of it, love is not lost between the New England Patriots and Darrelle Revis. As Patriots head coach Bill Belichick still considers Revis as one of the best defenders in the league today.
