Darrelle Revis drew interest from the Green Bay Packers and Baltimore Ravens before ultimately signing with the New York Jets.
"(It) was the Packers, Steelers, Baltimore as well as Cleveland, the Chiefs, the Jets and also the Pats, so there was a number of teams there," he said. "I sat down and had conversations with (them) to see if we could work something out."
Revis was asked if there was anything the Patriots could have done to keep him from leaving after one season.
"You know they had the opportunity, they had a number of options to do a number of things," he said. "I had an option for $20 million they could have picked up and they didn't decide to which is fine. They tried to negotiate another deal so you know that was just something I had to go through as well."
