    Revis in 2015 at $20 million?

    Say what?

     

    Tom Pelissero @TomPelissero 7m

    Darrelle Revis' deal with #Patriots includes an option for 2015 at $20M, including a $12 roster bonus.

    Tom Pelissero @TomPelissero 9m

    If #Patriots exercise option before end of 2014 league year, he'd get a $12M roster bonus April 1, 2015 and have a base of $7.5M in '15.

     

    Albert Breer @AlbertBreer 44s

    Breakdown of Revis' deal: He gets $10 million to sign, $1.5 million base salary, $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses up to 15 games for '14.

    If the cap number is reasonable in the option and revis plays like the revis off old, I have no doubt the pats will exercise the option.

    Just get a long term deal done now.

         Who is Tom Pelissero? From everything I've heard and read, the Pats have the option to franchise Revis next year f they wish...which would probably put his salary at round $14mil., not twenty!

         Besides, who cares about this, now? I love the fact that Revis is playing on a one year deal. Why? Because he'll be super motivated this season to once again prove that he is what he thinks he is...the league's best CB. Let's worry about 2015 in 2015.

    @ mass live:

    Darrelle Revis’ contract with the Patriots is not what we thought it was.

    The cornerback will still receive $12 million in 2014, but the deal also includes an option for 2015 worth $20 million, according to USA Today.

    If New England chooses to exercise Revis’ option, he would receive a $12 million roster bonus on April 1, 2015, and receive a base salary of $7.5 million in 2015. If the Patriots decline to exercise the option, they would not be able to retain him with the franchise tag.

    Ian Rapoport @RapSheet 39s

    In the end, Revis’ Pats deal turns out to be a two-year deal worth $32M with a team option for $20M in 2015… which means no franchise tag

    Because there's the option on Revis' deal, I believe that splits his cap hit, and makes his cap hit $6.5 million for 2014.

    Based on this 2 year structure, the cap hit for Revis in 2014 is $6.5 million.  Holy hell, Belichick is awesome with the cap.  I love it!

    The per-game bonuses are counted on the cap. So Darrelle Revis' cap number for 2014 will be $7 million, with $5 million to carry into '15.

    I happen to like this.  Although it removes the franchise option the Pats have control.  And if the cap impact is what you guys seem to think it is, so much the better.

    Re: Revis in 2015 at $20 million?

    I just read the contract particulars and there is a bright side to this deal, Revis is only going to cost 6.5 mil against the cap this year! That leaves the Patriots with about 12 mil in cap space before they do any juggling. The bad part of the deal is that Revis will only be here for one year based upon the option year numbers where his cap would be 25 million dollars vs 5.5 in dead money. I can do basic math and with his salary for 2015 being 20 mil added to a 25 million dollar cap hit he ain't staying here.

    Just so you have it in 1 place ... Revis on Patriots' cap: $7M for 2014, $25M for ’15 or $5M in dead money for ’15 if option isn’t exercised

    So unless we extend him after the season we are left with 5 million in dead money?  I guess with the cap going up again and the cap relief this year that isn't so bad, but I liked the "original" deal better.

    Re: Revis in 2015 at $20 million?

    By: Jeff Howe  

    In a twist, the Patriots' contract for Darrelle Revis is actually for two years, with the second year as a club option that must be picked up by the end of the 2014 league year, according to NFL Network. At the very least, this is a way to lighten the cap hit in 2014, but it's unlikely Revis will see the second year of the deal without reworking or extending the contract in some manner.

    First, here is the breakdown.

    2014:

    Signing bonus: $10 million

    Base salary: $1.5 million

    Games-played bonus: $500,000 ($33,333.33 per game played up to 15 games)

    Cap hit: $7 million

    2015:

    Roster bonus: $12 million

    Base salary: $7.5 million

    Games-played bonus: $500,000 ($33,333.33 per game played up to 15 games)

    Cap hit: $25 million

    Notes: If the Patriots don't pick up the option, the Patriots would have $5 million in dead money against the cap in 2015, but that can be avoided by reworking the contract in the meantime. The Pats could also decline the option and franchise tag Revis (a minimum of $14.4 million in 2015 based on 120 percent of his earnings in 2014) and ultimately have him count $19.4 million against the cap in 2015 -- so long as the contract allows for Revis to be franchised, of course. It comes down to this: Revis won't play in 2015 for these original terms, but the two sides have plenty of options to work out something more beneficial for one another.

    And as I reported last night, there's no no-tag provision in Revis' deal. The catch: Tag would have to come in '16 and cost $30 million.

    Re: Revis in 2015 at $20 million?

    Revis will be 30 in 2015. I doubt any will pay him megabucks on a long term at that age.

    The second year was obviously put in to structure the cap hit for the one year tryout rental. There is obviously no way the Pats go through with year 2.

    If all goes well and the market is as reasonable as it should be for a 30 yo, he might be retained on a 3 year deal at a sober price.

    In other words, the days of Revis greed are over. Father time and the wear and tear has put the kibosh on that.

    If this works out well, look for a new 3 year deal at 25 mil to replace the current arrangement.
