The New England Patriots and New York Jets have competition for the services of Darrelle Revis.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the Cleveland Browns are set to make a run at the All-Pro cornerback when he reaches the open market on Tuesday. Rapoport also named the Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs as candidates to battle for the All-Pro cornerback.

The Patriots are not picking up Revis' $20 million option for 2015, but they continue to talk with the cover man about a new contract, per Rapoport. Revis will be free to speak with additional suitors come Tuesday at 4 p.m. ET

The Browns are linked to Revis through coach Mike Pettine, who worked with the cornerback for four seasons during their time together with Jets. Chiefs coordinator Bob Sutton also worked closely with Revis in the Big Apple. 

It's the second consecutive year the Browns have chased Revis after making a run at the defender last offseason. Revis, of course, chose the Patriots, won a Super Bowl and remains likely to stay in New England or return home to Gotham. All the rest must be seen as a distant contenders for his services.
