After being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers CB Darrelle Revis could have played virtually anywhere. He has made a name for himself as one of the best CBs in the game and there is always a market for great corners. With all the interest many may question why Revis chose to go to the Patriots, a team that he at one time felt so much animosity towards. That answer for Revis is simple. He wants to win.
The star cornerback received a tour of the team’s facility Monday before taking part in a 12-minute conference call with reporters. Revis explained why he chose the Patriots, who he said were among “around 26 teams” interested in his services after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last week.
“I weighed my options and I wanted to win, and I felt like this was the right place,” Revis said.
“My thing is all about winning. I want to win. What better organization than the New England Patriots to be a part of?”-NFL.com
Revis was compensated like a top CB as well signing a deal that could be as long as 2 years and would top out at $32 million.
