Adjust Comment Print

While everyone was out traveling for the Thanksgiving holiday, Darelle Revis signed a two year contract with the Kansas City Chiefs.

According to the NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Revis' deal with the Chiefs is for two years, with the minimum this year and "no fully guaranteed money" in 2018.

Revis was released by the Jets following the 2016 season, which was the worst of his esteemed career. He excelled with the New York Jets under defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, who holds the same position now with the Chiefs.

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

Once upon a time, Revis was arguably the best cornerback in the National Football League, a six-time Pro Bowler, four-time All-Pro and perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate.

Darrelle Revis was once considered one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL.

And there it is, Darrelle Revis, pen to paper.

"We're excited to add Darrelle to the roster", Chiefs coach Andy Reid said.

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). If they face the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Patriots in the playoffs, that will be a serious problem. Revis played with the Jets from 2007-12, Tampa Bay in 2013 and won a Super Bowl with the Patriots in 2014 before returning to the Jets.
