Mike Giardi and Jerod Mayo talk about the potential of a Patriots reunion with Darrelle Revis. Mayo thinks if he is motivated, he can still play, but that's a big IF in Jerod's mind. Plus, is Revis a sure fire Hall of Famer?
Giardi and Mayo also discuss Cyrus Jones, who had a rough rookie year for the Patriots. Jerod thinks he could make a major leap in his second season and play a huge role.

On Malcolm Butler, Mayo has one piece of advice - stop being so emotional! He talks about how Butler has no leverage as a restricted free-agent, and the Patriots are in the right. Mayo stresses to Butler that insurance can offset any fears for playing for what he believes his market value is.
Giardi goes 1-on-1 with Saints reporter Nick Underhill about the latest rumors from the owner's meetings regarding Malcolm Butler, and how his acquisition could prevent Drew Brees from considering going to a title contender when his contract is up in 2018.
