Kraft on possible Patriots reunion with Revis: 'I would love it'

Kraft on possible Patriots reunion with Revis: 'I would love it'

It was reported last week that multiple NFL executives are convinced that Darrelle Revis will return to the New England Patriots next season.

Talking with the New York Daily News, Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he’d be open to a reunion with the 31-year-old cornerback.

“I would love it,” Kraft said. “Speaking for myself, if he wanted to come back, he’s a great competitor, I’d welcome him if he wanted to come.”

Asked if the team has had discussions with Revis, Kraft said “ask my boy,” in reference to coach Bill Belichick.

Revis spent the 2014 season with the Patriots, helping them win Super Bowl XLIX. He bolted back to the New York Jets the next season, signing a five-year, $70 million contract ($39 million guaranteed).

The Jets released Revis earlier this month after the incident in Pittsburgh. A judge dismissed the charges.

Just one day after retiring from football, Rob Gronkowski already is getting called out by WWE stars.

During "Monday Night Raw," Lio Rush knew exactly how to rile up the Boston crowd. While taking shots at fellow WWE star Finn Balor, Rush fired some at Gronkowski as well.

"You should've just quit while you were ahead. You really should've," Rush said. "Now, you are gonna be forced to leave the game as a beaten, broken, hot piece of garbage like Rob Gronkowski."
