PHOENIX — The Super Bowl hasn’t begun yet, and there is already discussion as to where Darrelle Revis might play next season.

PHOENIX — The Super Bowl hasn’t begun yet, and there is already discussion as to where Darrelle Revis might play next season.

The star cornerback has a $20 million team option with New England for next season, and a report came out this week that the team might be interested in paying that, but Sunday morning it was learned that two AFC East teams are also interested in his services.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, both the Jets and Bills are interested in Revis. With this Bills he would reunite with old coach Rex Ryan, and the Jets are already reportedly being investigated for tampering with him last month.

PHOENIX — Super Bowl Sunday is here.

With kickoff approaching we asked some Patriots players what their game day routine is like — some being more superstitious than others.

OL Cameron Fleming: “The two most consistent things are I have to eat grits in the morning and I have to have a new mouthpiece.”

WR Josh Boyce: “I don’t really have an everyday routine. I wake up, shower. I am not really superstitious when it comes to game day.”

C Bryan Stork: “I go to the game and I play. That is my routine.”

TE Tim Wright: “I like to get there early. Get all my stuff laid out organized and I don’t like rushing. I will go in the hot tub and get loose. Then I go on the field and get some warm up routes in, get going a little bit and then I put my pads on and by that time I am ready to go.”

WR Brian Tyms: “I play Gucci Mane, a little mix. I have to be out there first. I will probably sit out there for like 10 minutes. Get a ball and jog around the field. Catch the ball to myself and then wait for [Brandon] LaFell and Danny [Amendola] to come out and we start running routes.”

QB Jimmy Garoppolo: “It always depends on if it is a day game, night game. If I took it through the whole thing we’d be here awhile. Pretty much wake up, breakfast and get ready to roll. Once you get to the stadium it’s on.”

CB Kyle Arrington: “My superstition is to be as random as possible. That whole superstition thing didn’t work out too well. It didn’t duplicate for me the way I wanted to. I am just spontaneous, whether it is listening to new music, wearing different socks, shoes, different shirt under my jersey, you name it.”

OL Dan Connolly: “I have a routine. It’s nothing crazy. I get ready for the game. I’m not superstitious. I wake up and have breakfast. If it is an early game I go straight to the stadium. I get in the hot tub. I warm up. I get dressed. It’s a routine for a football game, it’s nothing special.”

PHOENIX — Bill Belichick was right about Junior Seau.

PHOENIX — Bill Belichick was right about Junior Seau.

The late linebacker was voted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame Saturday by the organization’s annual selection committee meeting on the day before the Super Bowl.

The nine-hour meeting resulted in the election of eight individuals to the Hall of Fame’€™s Class of 2015. Raising the total number of members in the Hall of Fame to 295 are running back Jerome Bettis, wide receiver/returner Tim Brown, defensive end/linebacker Charles Haley, contributor Bill Polian, linebacker Junior Seau, guard Will Shields, center Mick Tingelhoff, and contributor Ron Wolf.

Belichick had said on Thursday that the election of Seau was a no-brainer. Seau starred for 20 NFL seasons during which time he established himself as one the finest linebackers in league history. Named first-team All-Pro eight times, he was selected to 12 Pro Bowls and named NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 1992. His final four seasons were spent under Belichick with the Patriots from 2006-09.

“This is a huge honor for our family. It is definitely with a heavy heart that I am accepting this because he should be here,” son Tyler Seau said, referring to his father’s suicide in 2012. “He is here with us right now, and he is joining this family and team that everyone is talking about, but I think family is even stronger. Emotionally, it is tough because we are missing a huge part, but we are staying strong and this is a blessing. We are humbled to be a part of this family.”

The annual selection meeting was held inside the Super Bowl XLIX Media Center in downtown Phoenix and capped a year-round selection process. The newly elected Hall of Famers were chosen from a list of 18 finalists who had been determined earlier by the Pro Football Hall of Fame‘€™s Selection Committee.
