If the Patriots fail to renegotiate with cornerback Darrelle Revis by Tuesday, they’ll probably cut him to avoid a cap-busting, $20 million option for 2015. And then he’d be a free agent, setting the stage for an all out battle royal for Revis. According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, one AFC executive feels the cornerback could fetch a contract worth 50 million over three years.
One AFC executive predicted Revis will fetch a three-year, $50 million contract. He probably won’t get that much from the Patriots, who don’t deflate when it comes to negotiating contracts. They’re hardball all the way, expecting their stars to accept less than market in exchange for the joy of being part of the Patriot Way. By contrast, the Jets, perhaps motivated by their desire to stick it to their archrival and win the offseason, probably will overpay for the almost-30 cornerback.
It will be interesting to see if the Bills get in the mix as well, to rejoin Revis with REXY….
