New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick sent cornerback Darrelle Revis home Tuesday for showing up late that day, reports the Boston Globe

Revis reportedly arrived late to the Patriots facility in the morning and was sent home by Belichick without being able to participate in meetings and practice. It is unclear how late Revis was, but players were scheduled to report at 7:30 a.m. ET.

According to the Globe, a source said Belichick's message "was definitely sent" and that Revis accepted responsibility for his actions. 

In 2009, Belichick sent four players home after they arrived late in a snowstorm. 

Revis signed a two-year, $32 million deal with New England in March after being released by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The veteran has 23 tackles, four passes defended, one interception and one forced fumble in seven games this season.
