It's all love between Darrelle Revis and the New England Patriots, apparently.

The Patriots announced Thursday that they will be honored by President Barack Obama next Thursday at the White House.

And, according to a source, Revis plans to make the trip to Washington.

Revis earned his first Super Bowl ring in February with the Patriots, but when New England declined to pick up his option for 2015, he became a free agent and signed a five-year, $70-million deal with the Jets last month.

All players from the 2014 championship team are invited to the White House event. But as of now, it's unclear if former Patriots running back Stevan Ridley, who also signed a free-agent deal with the Jets, will be in attendance.
