Ironically, the Patriots were able to win the Super Bowl in spite of Darrelle Revis, not because of him.
Patriots All-Pro CB Darrelle Revis, who could be released by the team in the offseason, is not thinking about the 2015 season just yet.

Following the Patriots’ 28-24 Super Bowl XLIX win over the Seattle Seahawks, the mercenary CB – who is due to make $20 million in 2015 if the Patriots choose to keep him – was asked what his plans are for next year, but Revis said he would not answer that question yet.
“The offseason will weigh itself out. I’m just so happy for us as a team. Accomplishing the ultimate goal and that’s winning the Super Bowl. Like I said, I have a great team on my side and we’ll figure my future out in the offseason,” Revis told ProFootballTalk.com.
With Revis dominating the secondary and trapping opposing receivers on “Revis Island” the Patriots held their 2014 opponents to 313 points, their fewest since 2010.
As mentioned earlier he is due to make $20 million in 2015 – a nearly ridiculous sum of money for a Patriots team that may be more interested in investing in the future with younger players.
But if the Patriots are unwilling to pay, Revis is extremely likely to take his services to another team that will – the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills (a pair of Patriots AFC East rivals) have already been rumored to be eager to acquire Revis and have more than enough salary cap to meet his demands, no matter how outrageous.
Revis previously played for the New York Jets from 2007 to 2012, and played for Buffalo Bills head coach Rex Ryan in New York from 2009 to 2012.
The CB would likely be more inclined to reunite with Ryan in Buffalo, where he would be the final piece in the puzzle of what could be one of the best defenses in the NFL in 2015.
