The New England Patriots have a second option year on the contract for Darrelle Revis at an exorbitant cap hit of $25 million. Patriots president Jonathan Kraft in a radio interview in Boston called the current contract a “placeholder” for what they hope will eventually be a multi-year extension for the perennial Pro Bowl cornerback.
Appearing on WEEI radio in Boston, Kraft stated that it is the club’s intention to put together an extension offer for Revis in short order.
“Hopefully both sides want to make a deal and we’ll be able to get one done,” Kraft told on WEEI. “We’ll get to work on trying to make [an extension] happen.”
NFL free agency opens on March 10th, with clubs eligible to begin negotiating with player agents March 7th for players no longer under contract.
