RUMOR MILL: Revis To New England?

RUMOR MILL: Revis To New England?

After the smoke cleared on Tuesday Darrelle Revis was still a Buccaneer. Prior to the close of business Wednesday he was a free agent. Possibly by the end of the night he'll be in New England. Here's what we're hearing.

Rumor Mill:   Patriots To sign Darrelle Revis if released

BUZZ: 
HOT

RUMOR:  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have been trying to unload Darrelle Revis prior to a roster bonus due at the close of business Wednesday.  If released, the Patriots are considered to be a key player in where he lands, especially if they lose free agent CB Aqib Talib.

SOURCE:   Multiple reports

UPDATE:  03/11/13 The Buccaneers are in no position to trade Revis after the CB declined to restructure his deal to remain in Tampa Bay... the Browns, considered a key trade partner, are heading a different direction.  ... 03/09/14 Multiple outlets reporting that the Patriots are one of the places Darrelle Revis would like to end up if the Buccaneers release him.

ANALYSIS:
Losing Talib would be very bad for the Patriots' secondary... adding Revis would more than make up for the loss, actually improving the Patriots' defense according to some analysts.
