Darrelle Revis’ time on the open market seemed as brief as his days in Tampa, Fla.
The former All-Pro cornerback has agreed to a two-year deal with the New England Patriots, FOX Sports Insider Mike Garafolo has confirmed. The deal inclued $12 million in first year and an option for 2015.
If the Patriots choose to enable the option, they would pay Revis a roster bonus worth $12.5 million and a base salary for $7.5 million, FOX Sports insider Alex Marvez reports..
Revis, who was released by the Buccaneers minutes before he was due a $1.5 milllion roster bonus, was set to earn $16 million with his former team.
The Patriots were looking to bolster their secondary after allowing cornerback Aqib Talib to sign with the Broncos on Tuesday.
Revis reportedly considered a return to the Jets, but not long after the report surfaced, the agreement with the Patriots did, too.
