Darrelle Revis signing draws cheers, shock from Chiefs Kingdom

Instead of recycling the same guys, the team finally decided to make a move by signing Darrelle Revis.

Kansas City defensive coordinator Bob Sutton was a member of the New York Jets' staff during all of Revis' first tenure with the team.

Revis should adjust fairly easily to the Chiefs' defensive scheme.

The Chiefs announced on Wednesday it has signed free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis, a seven-time Pro Bowler that has been a free agent since March 1 when he was cut by the New York Jets in a salary dump. Revis is also one of the best trash-talkers in the NFL. NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport was told by a source that Revis was inked to a two-year deal that will pay him the league minimum with incentives this season and a $10 million price tag for 2018 that becomes guaranteed with the new league year. Many believed his contract would have to match the Jets dead cap to bring him back to the game, but it seems as if the love for the game is bringing Revis back for at least one more year.


Revis will return to MetLife Stadium on December 3, when the Jets host the Chiefs.

The Chiefs, who have lost four of their last five games, have struggled mightily against the pass this season, allowing 253.8 yards per game (ranked 28th in the league).

In Revis' Hall of Fame career, he has compiled 29 interceptions, six forced fumbles, 12 fumble recoveries, 485 tackles, three pick sixes, and a Super Bowl ring with New England.
