Rumors have been circulating around all day that the Patriots are already working on a contract extension with CB Darrelle Revis since he’s been so impressive in camp.

 Jason Cole of Bleacher Report, said the Patriots were so impressed by the Darrelle Revis they’re already working on a contract for the pro bowl corner. 

“What I’m hearing from the Patriots is that Revis has been so good so far that they are privately already starting to talk about extending his contract,” Cole said to Bleacher Report’s Adam Lefkoe. “The Patriots like what they see so much — they think they see the next Ty Law and that shutdown cover corner to really get their defense going — that they’d like to extend him out. Robert Kraft, the owner of the team, has pulled Darrelle Revis aside and started to talk to him to see if they can get a long term deal worked out.”

The Patriots signed Revis back in March to a two-year, $32 million deal. The deal allows the Patriots an option for the second year, which means they will either pay Revis a $12 million roster bonus or he will become a free agent in 2015.

It would make sense for the Patriots to lock down one of the best corners in the game for more than two years, but is it really happening right now before a single regular season game?

Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe is reporting that his source is refuting that rumor.

When rumors start flying I like to see what Jeff Howe is reporting because the Boston Herald’s Jeff Howe and Karen Guregian’s sources are usually honest and right, so I’ll believe him on this.

I don’t think it’s going down right now, but I think it will eventually.
