Darrelle Revis agrees to one-year deal with Patriots
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com (3/12/14) The Patriots have agreed to a one-year deal with free-agent corner Darrelle Revis Wednesday according to ESPN.com, just hours after he was released by the Buccaneers. Revis will be taking a paycut while maintaining long-term flexibility, as the deal will pay him $12 million for 2014.
Revis had a solid 2013 season with the Buccaneers, recording 50 tackles and two interceptions while playing in all 16 games after recovering from knee surgery. He will replace the recently departed Aqib Talib for the Patriots, with one Pro-Bowl corner stepping in for another.
Spikes appeared on the NFL Network on Friday and said "both sides could benefit from a fresh start." He also added that his injured knee is "100 percent."
Spikes, who had 86 tackles during the 2013 season, was placed on injured reserve in advance of the AFC divisional round in part due to missing a team meeting. Spikes also was dealing with a knee issue during the latter part of the season.
Grissom, an undrafted rookie, was placed on injured reserve after suffering a high-ankle sprain during a preseason game against the Lions. Prior to that, the University of South Florida product was making a case for the practice squad.
Grissom, who recorded 105 tackles, 16.5 for a loss, with five sacks over four seasons in college, was sent to Florida to work out and recover on his own during the season. It is expected that Grissom will be given the opportunity to earn a roster spot next season.

The Patriots DST has the potential to be great in 2013, but they need to be more consistent. The Patriots DST had some big games in 2012 with at least 20 Fantasy points in a standard league in four games, but they also had single digits in five other outings. The good thing for the Patriots is they create plenty of turnovers with 20 interceptions and 21 fumble recoveries. This is now the third year in a row with at least 34 turnovers. A more consistent pass rush would help since they had just 36 sacks in 2012, which is the third year in a row they’ve been at 40 or fewer. But with Bill Belichick at the helm, the Patriots defense will always be among the best in the NFL. They are worth drafting as a Top 10 option in all leagues and should be taken with a late-round pick. (Updated 4/26/13)
