Well, that settles it. Darrelle Revis has chosen to return home to New York with the New York Jets.

After a year that saw Revis built up his value by playing like the star corner he is, and earning a Super Bowl ring along the way, Revis was apparently lulled by the Jets wallets.

Owner Woody Johnson had made it clear that he wanted to do anything possible to bring Revis back to New York. That included throwing all of the cap space available at the cornerback. Revis was apparently asking for $40 million guaranteed, something that New England wasn't willing to budge on, apparently.

Patriots fans hoped that the corner would be impressed enough with his Super Bowl ring to try and come back and win one again. That apparently won't be the case.

This leaves the Pats scrambling. They allowed their other starting cornerback, Brandon Browner, to become a free-agent after elected not to pick up his option. The remaining corners at the top of the roster are Kyle Arrington, Logan Ryan, Alfonzo Dennard and, of course, Malcolm Butler.

Many wondered when the Pats signed Revis last season if he would be a one-year rental. He was.
