One day after Aqib Talib to a six-year, $57 million contract with the Broncos, the Patriots filled the void by adding Darrelle Revis. Two days later, they signed former Seahawk Brandon Browner to patron the side opposite Revis.

Revis' contract is for one year at $12 million but the deal also includes a club option for a second year. Browner's deal is for $17 million spread out over three years, although he'll be suspended for the first four games of 2014 due to a PED violation last year. Regardless, the Patriots have drastically improved their secondary with these two additions. They're likely to play a more physical, man-to-man scheme next season.

The Patriots are also reportedly interested in eventually signing Revis to a long-term deal. Per Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the team sees this as a rare opportunity to hold on to the league's top cornerback. But unlike his deal with the Jets, there's no language in his current deal with the Patriots from using the franchise tag on him in 2015.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Patriots opened with 14/1 odds to win the 2015 Super Bowl but they have since fallen to 9/1. They also opened with 3/1 odds to win the AFC title and that's where their odds remain.
