FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Cornerback Darrelle Revis has agreed to contract terms with the New England Patriots, according to his business manager.
"Now it's Official.@Revis24 has agreed to terms with the New England Patriots!" John Geiger tweeted Thursday
The Patriots have not made an announcement regarding Revis.
The agreement was first reported by ESPN, which said it was for one year at $12 million.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers released the three-time All-Pro on Wednesday before he was due a $1.5 million bonus. Revis was cut after efforts to trade him and his $16 million salary failed.
Revis, known for his lock-down coverage in man-to-man defense, would replace cornerback Aqib Talib, who left the Patriots for a six-year contract worth a reported $57 million from the Denver Broncos.
