Revis chose the Patriots over more money. (Charles Krupa/AP).
A few days ago, Jeff Howe reported that the Patriots and Darrelle Revis intend to open contract extension talks once the season is over, and that both sides have mutual interest in making it happen. One interesting tidbit that Howe was able to uncover while doing some research is that Revis turned down a larger offer last season in order to sign with the Patriots.

This is relevant due to the fact that Revis stated that he chose the Patriots to win. According to Howe, Revis would have "easily been the highest-paid CB in the NFL if he accepted that offer, but he chose the Pats because of a better chance to win."

Given Revis' comments and social media posts, it appears that Revis has bought into the Patriot Way, and loves the team and the atmosphere. Combine that with the success the team has had, and Belichick's ability to let Revis play the way he wants to play, things seem to be playing out just as Revis desired.

Things seem to be working out for both sides, and with Brady opening up some cash that could go towards a Revis signing bonus, it is very feasible to see a lower salary cap hit contract that will pay Revis what he wants, over the period of time the Patriots want, and retain Revis in New England for the future.
