Robert Kraft, Nick Caserio on Darrelle Revis

3/17/2014

In a video posted on the Patriots' official website, owner Robert Kraft and director of player personnel Nick Caserio chimed in on the team's signing on cornerback Darrelle Revis.

Below are their remarks:

Kraft: "Well I think everyone associated with the team and all of our fans throughout New England are excited about [Darrelle] Revis joining us. He's obviously the best -- or one of the top two or three shutdown corners. We're very happy he chose to play with our team. I think it's a great tribute to our head coach, our quarterback and all the players on our team that he really had a choice to go anywhere he wanted and he chose to come here."

Caserio: "He's been a productive player. He's got good size, he runs well, he's good at the line of scrimmage. He's played in a couple of different systems and he's been productive in multiple systems. He was productive when he was with the Jets and he was productive last season down there in Tampa, so we'll put him in the mix and see how his skills translate to what we're doing and see how it goes when we get him and we start working with him."

The Patriots do not hold introductory press conferences for free agents, but the fact that they opted to share remarks on the Revis signing is an indicator of just how he is viewed from a talent perspective.
