The Patriots made huge news on Wednesday night when they inked Darrelle Revis to a one-year, $12 million deal just hours after he hit free agency.

However, it came to light Thursday that, CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora notes, that the Patriots also have a second-year option available on Revis.

It's a team option for 2015 that would cost the Pats $20 million to keep Revis.

Which means technically he signed a two-year, $32 million deal, except technically he didn't because there's zero chance the Patriots will use that option.

$20 million is entirely prohibitive, even for Revis.

The Patriots may want to lock up Revis long term, but don't expect them to use that option, even if it's available to them.
