Darrelle Revis to visit White House with Patriots
Friday April 17th, 2015

New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis plans to re-join the New England Patriots for their White House visit next week, Jeff Howe of the Boston Herald reports.

Revis was a key member of the team’s run to its fourth Super Bowl title during his lone season in New England. After the Patriots declined a $20 million option on Revis, he signed a five-year, $70 million contract to return to Jets this offseason.

The Patriots will visit President Barack Obama on Thursday, and’s Dom Cosentino confirmed Howe’s report that Revis will be in attendance.

Revis’ return to a division rival was not without controversy. The NFL reportedly interviewed Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan and the front office to investigate for alleged tampering in the signing.

After Patriots owner Robert Kraft said the team tried to re-sign Revis, the Jets reportedly filed tampering charges against the Patriots.

Revis was a first-round pick by the Jets in 2007 and played the first six seasons of his career in New York. He then played one season for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers before joining the Patriots.
