NEW YORK I'm coming home. #revisisland #jetnation pic.twitter.com/KQE3Yc1orz — Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) March 11, 2015 The Patriots could have picked up a $20 million option on the four-time All-Pro for the 2015 season but declined. Revis then became a free agent at 4 p.m. Eastern time Tuesday before agreeing to join the Jets.During Revis' six seasons with the Jets, he made four Pro Bowls. The phrase "Revis Island" was also created referring to his ability to shut down an opposing teams' best receiver. In 2013, Revis was traded by the Jets to Tampa Bay for first and fourth-round picks. Revis then signed a six-year, $96 million contract with the Bucs. He stayed in Tampa for only one season before joining the Patriots. Revis played in all 19 games for the Pats last season, recording 53 tackles, 18 passes defended, three interceptions, and one forced fumble.   Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.

Patriots Decline $20 Million Option on Revis

Patriots Decline $20 Million Option on Revis Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(FOXBORO, Ma. ) -- Darrelle Revis is free to sell his services to the highest bidder once again. The New England Patriots declined a $20 million dollar contract option on the All-Pro cornerback Monday, allowing Revis to enter free agency. Revis's original team, the New York Jets are believed to be very interested in reuniting with their 2009 first round pick.  The Jets traded him in 2013 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for a first-round and what would eventually be a fifth-round selection. The Jets selected defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson with the first-rounder in 2013. The Patriots continue to actively negotiate with Revis after recently re-signing defensive back Devin McCourty to a five-year, $47.5 million contract.  New England filed tampering charges against New York in January after Jets' owner Woody Johnson stated he would "love for Darrelle to come back."

Report: Patriots File Tampering Charges Against Jets

Report: Patriots File Tampering Charges Against Jets Jim McIsaac/Getty Images (NEW YORK) -- The New England Patriots have filed tampering charges against the New York Jets over comments made by team owner Woody Johnson during an end-of-season press conference. The NFL office is looking into whether Johnson committed a violation for comments he made regarding cornerback Darrelle Revis. During a December 29th press conference, when Johnson announced the firing of Rex Ryan and John Idzik, a reporter responding to Johnson's acknowledgement that the team should have spent more money last season asked, "how much of it was your decision [to not re-sign Revis], when he made it clear he wanted to come back?" "Darrelle is a great player and if I thought I could have gotten him for that, I probably would have taken him," Johnson responded. "It was our best judgment to do what we did, but I'd love for Darrelle to come back." Johnson realizing he made a mistake in his comments issued a statement the next day saying he, "misspoke" and called Patriots owner Robert Kraft to "emphasize those points." If found in violation of the league's anti-tampering rules, Johnson could face a fine or the team could forfeit a draft pick. Revis is due $20 million next year as a contract option with the Patriots.  If they decline the option, he will become a free agent.  Follow @ABCNewsRadio Copyright © 2015, ABC Radio.
