FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Darrelle Revis did nothing to change his mercenary image.

Speaking to local reporters Friday for the first time since his surprise signing by the Patriots in March, Revis expressed excitement at joining the Jets’ bitter rival but also sounded every bit like the short-timer his contract sets him up to be.

“I’m on my career and my journey, and right now, I’m a New England Patriot,” Revis said after taking part in a voluntary on-field workout at Gillette Stadium. “And that’s that.”

The words “right now” were telling, because logic — and the salary cap — dictates the $20 million team option for 2015 in Revis’ deal means this will be the All-Pro cornerback’s lone season in a Patriots uniform.

Revis said all the right things Friday, deferring to his new teammates, welcoming the chance to play alongside Tom Brady instead of against him and even complimenting Bill Belichick — the same person he called a “jerk” on national TV just two years earlier.

According to Revis, the Patriots aren’t anything like what he pictured them to be in his six seasons as a Jet.

 

“From the inside, it’s totally different,” Revis said. “There are things you didn’t expect from how this organization is [run], from top to bottom. You’ve got to take your hat off to [owner Robert] Kraft for how this organization operates. They want to be a winning organization, and I’m happy those guys gave me an opportunity to come in here and be a part of it.”

Revis, 28, also is grateful to the Patriots for rescuing him after one nightmarish (although well-compensated) season with Tampa Bay. The Buccaneers went 4-12, fired coach Greg Schiano and then cut Revis shortly after Lovie Smith took over.

Revis earned $16 million for his one year in Tampa — his magic salary number and the one that prompted his trade by the Jets — but it was the most difficult of his pro career because Revis was coming back from a torn ACL and even asked to play zone defense in Schiano’s scheme.

“Last year was a tough year when I played in Tampa Bay,” said Revis, who is scheduled to make $12 million this season. “It was tough coming off the ACL and everything, so it was a long year for me personally. I’m just trying to recover.”

Revis said his knee “feels great” and the only adjustments have been learning the Patriots’ defensive scheme and getting to know his teammates.

“I’m just trying to take this time to get to know the guys and for them to know me as well,” Revis said. “I’m not trying to come in here and step on anybody’s toes. I’m just trying to come in here and learn as much as I can and get this defensive scheme down.”

Revis also made it clear he isn’t thinking about the Jets, though he will face them at least twice this season.

“That’s in the past,” he said when asked about Gang Green.

Revis appears to have fit in quickly in the New England locker room. Several veterans ribbed him loudly Friday about the large contingent of reporters waiting to talk to him.

“He’s a great guy,” second-year wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins said of Revis.

The question remains whether Revis, who always has been outspoken with the media, will fall in line with Belichick’s famously strict “Patriot Way” policy of zipped lips in the locker room.

Revis laughingly claimed Belichick “lets guys be who they are” but said he will continue to speak his mind.

“Yeah, I’m being my own guy,” Revis said. “I’m going to be me. That’s all I can say. I’m going to be myself and go with the flow.”

I admire a man who stands by his principles.  Revis' principal principle is that he's going to get every damn nickel out of his career that he possibly can.

What a troublemaker.

He's being a douche because he's being honest about his situation? I don't get it.

I agree with Slats in that Revis IS a douche and doesn't require acting lessons to reach that level. I would still rather him on the Jets than the Pats though. I don't think he is a difference maker anymore however and at 28 his time is short to make all his moolah.

There's a small part of football that's being able to just be one of the guys.

Sounds like he's having a tough time with that.

He measures success in dollars and cents and he is honest about it.I no longer care about the ritual of Player X saying he wants to be here because of this or that when the reason is cash. Further despite being as talented as he is he is a student of the game. Wish he was still here. And more proof salary caps and nonguaranteed contracts are bullsheet. Don't understand people who think it's a great idea to suppress salaries....so owners can amke more? Does anyone watch the Jets to see Woody Johnson? Is there a cap on how much money an NFL team makes, and other than the Packers(owned by a public trust) we never see to see the books. It's crap and we're fed it every day.
