According to the NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, former Patriots cornerback Darrelle Revis is willing to play for the veteran minimum in 2017.

Revis, who was released by the Jets on March 1, is coming off a disappointing two-season stint in his return to New York. The 31-year-old will still be paid $6 million by the Jets in the 2017 season, which Rapoport explains is why he wouldn’t command big money in free agency.

It’s unknown what kind of level teams will have in Revis given how poorly things ended with the Jets. He was also arrested for assault last month but had all charges against him dropped.

Revis’ motivation came into question during his second stint with the Jets, but he told the NFL Network’s Aditi Kinkhabwala this week that he has already lost 10 pounds.

"The hunger is definitely there," Revis told the NFL Network. "It's just passion and love for the game. I'm excited for this season to start. ... I can focus on what team I can fit with and the best system."
