Free Agent Safety Puts Darrelle Revis ON BLAST With Single Tweet

BY: John Mamola

Free agent safety Ryan Clark sent a #SHOTSFIRED on Twitter Wednesday night when he sent a tweet about Darrelle Revis after news of the cornerback’s contract agreement with the New England Patriots was reported.

Revis signed a one-year, $12 million contract with New England, which is four million less than what he was set to earn with Tampa Bay.

Here’s what Clark tweeted:

It was later revealed that the New England Patriots' contract with Darrelle Revis actually allows them to keep the Pro Bowl cornerback for 2015 – at a cost of $20 million.

Hardly a pay cut wouldn’t you say?

According to USA TODAY Sports, Revis received a $10 million signing bonus on the deal, which includes a $1.5 million guaranteed base salary for 2014 and $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses.

It also contains an option for 2015 that the Patriots would have to exercise by the end of the 2014 league year, locking in a $12 million roster bonus payable April 1, 2015, a base salary of $7.5 million and another $500,000 in per-game roster bonuses.

So to Mr. Clark just like everything else in life here is your lesson, don’t hit the send button.
