Memo to Darrelle Revis Dan Leberfeld

Darrelle Revis is now a free agent after getting released by Tampa Bay.

It’s time for a reality check for the star corner and his camp.

The NFL financial landscape has changed.

The days of the top corner getting $16 million a year are over.

The two top corners in free agency this year were Alterraun Verner and Aqib Talib.

Verner signed a four-year deal for $26.5 million with $14 million guaranteed.

Talib signed a 6-year deal for $57 million with $26 million guaranteed.

So the going rate for a top corner is in the $7-9 million a year range.

Revis needs to deal with that.

If he does, he will get a deal done quickly, somewhere.
