Revis is scheduled to make $16 million next season as part of a deal that would be voided if he is released by Tampa Bay. He would instantly be the best available defensive back on the market, so his price tag will still be high for teams looking to bid on his services.
The Patriots don’t typically get in the bidding for big-ticket free agents like Revis, but would they make an exception in this case? That is Question No. 1 on the minds of Patriots fans this morning.
It’s not like they don’t have options. They might prefer, for example, to re-sign incumbent cornerback Aqib Talib to a multi-year deal at a lesser price, which would mean they could spend more money elsewhere to fill another need.
