This pitch was either a 104mph strike or barely went 5 feet

PFT-Well, that didn’t take long.

Ex-Buccaneers cornerback Darrelle Revis has come to terms on a one-year, $12 million contract with the Patriots, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday night.

Revis was slated to make $16 million with the Buccaneers in 2014, so it appears he may have taken a pay cut. However, he can again hit the market next offseason.

Revis, who turns 29 in July, is widely regarded as one of the NFL’s top cover corners — a player capable of covering top receivers all over the field. He has intercepted 21 passes in seven NFL seasons.

However, this will be his third team in as many seasons. The Jets traded him to the Buccaneers last April for two draft picks, including a first-rounder that became Defensive Rookie of the Year Sheldon Richardson. Then, earlier Wednesday afternoon, the Buccaneers released Revis just one year into a six-year, $96 million deal — which was a series of one-year, $16 million team options.

But even after the Buccaneers bailed, there was little doubt Revis would have a robust market. And in the end, it was New England that got the deal done — and ever so quickly.

For the Patriots, this is the ultimate counterpunch after the Broncos signed away cornerback Aqib Talib on the first day of free agency. It also prevents a Jets-Revis reunion.

And does it ever set up a showdown in Foxborough between Denver and New England in the 2014 regular season.

And the Patriots just keep ripping the hearts out of Dolphin and Jets fans. I’m not going to bother including the Bills fans in this discussion because they know better than to think they have a shot at making the playoffs. But the rest of these dummies just can’t get it through their stupid heads. The Patriots aren’t even playing in the same league as you. They don’t even realize the Dolphins exist. Going to Miami to play the Dolphins is better than a bye week. Even if they lose who gives a shit because the Dolphins are still going to struggle to reach .500 and they just spent the weekend in Miami. The Jets are the loud dog in your neighborhood that runs away and pisses itself when you start walking towards it. Sorry to break it to you, but the Patriots are playing against the Bronco’s and that’s it. Everyone else is a scrimmage until wild-card week starts.
