Don't discount Revis returning to Patriots

Don’t discount the return of Darrelle Revis to the New England Patriots, Ben Volin of the Boston Globe reports.

One league executive said the Patriots “are the only team that makes sense” to sign Revis, as not many teams have a need for an expensive, aging cornerback with questionable work ethic. But Belichick could get the most out of Revis and find a way to use him — maybe not as a starting cornerback, but certainly as a depth piece at corner or strong safety.

And signing Revis would be a great way for Belichick to stick it to the Jets, one of his favorite pastimes. The Jets owe Revis $6 million in guaranteed salary (with offset language), and the Patriots could potentially get Revis for $1 million-$2 million and have the Jets pick up the rest of the tab, which would delight Belichick and Patriots fans to no end.

The only question — will Revis be willing to play football for free? He gets $6 million whether he plays this fall or sits on his couch, and he hasn’t played for that amount since 2008, his second NFL season.
