Not only did Belichick find a way to replace Talib but he also upgraded at the cornerback position in five time Pro Bowler Darelle Revis.

Earthwind Moreland, Troy Brown, Artrell Hawkins, Hank Poteat, Antwaun Molden. These are names fans are used to seeing as they glanced over the Patriots depth chart during the last decade. That’s about to change in 2014.

NEPD Editor: Mike Loyko

Less than 24 hour ago many Patriots fans were headed to the Tobin Bridge. Fans were take the leap after the Broncos once again plucked the Patriots top unrestricted free agent and after the Patriots did… well, nothing. Fast forward 24 hours later and not only have the Patriots replaced Aqib Talib, they upgraded.

Early Wednesday night, Bill Belichick swooped in and pulled off arguably the biggest free agent coup in Patriots history, landing All-World CB Darrelle Revis.

Here are my thoughts on the Revis signing, what it means, and where both sides go from here.
