According to the New York Daily News, Jets owner Woody Johnson has had discussions with GM Mike Maccagnan about signing Patriots CB Darrelle Revis.
As integral as Revis was to the Patriots' championship run last season, there's no way they can keep him at his current salary. New England would absorb a monstrous $25 million cap hit by picking up his option, making it a near certainty that Revis will hit the market. The Jets have a serious need at corner and are $51 million under the cap, so this is more than just smoke and mirrors. Revis went to four Pro Bowls during his six-year stay in the Meadowlands from 2007 to 2012. Mar 3 - 8:45 AM

Darrelle Revis could be willing to give the Patriots a team-friendly deal.

Revis turned down multiple offers last offseason that would have paid him more than his deal with the Patriots. The Boston Herald believes his "positive experience in his first year would seem to suggest he’d do it again." Revis is due a $20 million option, but the Patriots want to work out a long-term deal before his $12M roster bonus becomes guaranteed on March 9. New England is in danger of going over the salary cap if they don't extend Revis or restructure his contract.

Darrelle Revis’ contract puts the Patriots in serious danger of going over the salary cap.

Revis is set to earn $20 million next season, a monumental cap hit for a team already close to its spending limit. If the Pats decide to keep Revis without signing him to an extension or restructuring his contract, the team may need to cut veterans like Danny Amendola, Jerod Mayo or Vince Wilfork just to get under the cap. Revis’ deal also makes it harder to re-sign free agents Stephen Gostkowski and Devin McCourty. It’s impossible to predict what New England’s offseason holds until the Pats figure out where they stand with Revis.
Feb 13 - 1:34 PM

Patriots president Jonathan Kraft said that Darrelle Revis' team-option for 2015 is a "placeholder" and that the sides plan to "get to work" on a long-term deal.

There were reports New England could pick up Revis' $20 million option, but the Patriots want to lower his cap hit by signing him to an extension. Revis played at an All-Pro level in 2014, grading out as top-five corner by Pro Football Focus. The two sides will need to work out a long-term deal before March 9, when Revis' $12M roster bonus is due.
Feb 6 - 4:59 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Jets and Bills will pursue CB Darrelle Revis if he reaches free agency this offseason.

That's a big "if", as there have been recent reports of the Patriots seriously considering picking up Revis' $20 million team option for 2015. He had an excellent first season in New England, playing at an All-Pro level and grading out as Pro Football Focus' No. 4 cover corner. The Jets and Bills' connections are easy. Revis became a star in New York under new Bills coach Rex Ryan.
Feb 1 - 10:54 AM

The Patriots have reportedly not ruled out picking up Darrelle Revis' $20M team option for 2015.

Revis' first year in New England couldn't have gone better. He played at an All-Pro level once again, helping Bill Belichick scheme up ways to stop the enemy's top weapon weekly and get back to the Super Bowl. It's possible the two sides will work out a long-term extension before April 1, when Revis' $12M roster bonus for 2015 is due. It's perfect match.

Darrelle Revis is not expected to be disciplined for being late to Tuesday's practice.

Revis reportedly overslept through a 7:30am meeting and then was told to go home once he arrived at the Patriots facility. We've seen the Patriots not start players in the following game when things like this happen (Wes Welker), but it doesn't look that's going to happen in this case. Revis apologized to coach Bill Belichick and he's desperately needed against Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery Sunday.

Darrelle Revis is not listed on the Week 6 injury report.

Revis left last week's blowout of the Bengals briefly with a hamstring issue, but returned and finished the game out. He appears 100 percent and is expected to shadow Sammy Watkins Sunday.

Darrelle Revis exited Sunday night's Week 5 game against the Bengals with a left hamstring injury.

Revis walked off under his own power, but was taken to the locker room for further evaluation. He later returned in the fourth quarter.

The Patriots did not use Darrelle Revis as a shadow cornerback in Week 1 against the Dolphins, instead leaving him at left corner for "all but one or two snaps."

He's being used just like Richard Sherman. Revis did play well in his LCB role, allowing 2-of-5 passes against him to be completed for 36 yards. He broke up two throws, but also permitted a touchdown to Mike Wallace. Revis' usage suggests he will not follow Cordarrelle Patterson around the formation in Week 2 against the Vikings. He may end up matching up mostly with Greg Jennings.

CSN New England's Tom Curran expects the Patriots to use Darrelle Revis in a movement cornerback role this season.

This would be our expectation as well, despite Revis' early-camp usage at left cornerback only. When Brandon Browner returns from suspension in Week 5, however, we wouldn't be surprised to see Browner exclusively play right corner, with Revis mostly at LCB and sometimes manning the slot. Either way, the Patriots' secondary is going to be very difficult for fantasy matchup purposes.

Darrelle Revis has lined up strictly at left corner through ten Patriots training camp practices, as opposed to moving around to cover No. 1 receivers.

Rather than "Revis Island," beat writer Ben Volin describes Revis' usage as "Revis Hemisphere." He's always on the left side, with Kyle Arrington at slot corner and Brandon Browner at right cornerback. Perhaps the Pats have simply been vanilla on the practice field, or perhaps they plan to play in this fashion during the regular season. We can't know for sure until the games start. Keep in mind career-RCB Browner is suspended the first four games, so it's possible Revis will be utilized as a "shadow corner" for the first month, and then play LCB the rest of the way. We can't know for sure, but this was definitely worth passing along. The Patriots open the year against Mike Wallace, Cordarrelle Patterson/Greg Jennings, Andre Holmes/James Jones, and Dwayne Bowe.

Darrelle Revis says he no longer thinks about his surgically-repaired knee.

"That's not a concern," Revis said. "I'm moving great and happy to be where I'm at physically. I just want to keep building on top of that to get ready for the season." Revis has admitted to being limited at times early last season, but remained one of the game's most-effective corners. That's not going to change now that he's another year removed from his injury. He should have a monster year in Foxboro.

According to Darrelle Revis' trainer, Brett Fischer, the cornerback's surgically-repaired knee is 100 percent and no longer an issue or talking point.

"He’s so fired up," Fischer said. "I think fans in New England are going to see a guy who is even better than in the past because he has rehabilitated himself from the ACL. … It's a non-factor." Revis will be full-go for the offseason program.

ESPN New York reports the Jets weren't interested in Darrelle Revis before he signed with the Patriots.

There was considerable sound and fury about a potential Revis reunion with the Jets, but according to reporter Rich Cimini, Gang Green never reached out. Speaking on a Monday conference call, Revis claimed as many as 26 teams inquired, but the Jets have moved on from the Revis era (and its massive salaries). It's probably for the best that the sides didn't try to recapture the past.
