Chiefs Sign Former Jets Cornerback Darrelle Revis

Darrelle Revis

The Kansas City Chiefs waived defensive lineman Cam Thomas in order to make room for cornerback Darrelle Revis on the 53-man roster.

A source close to the deal told NFL Insider Ian Rapport that Revis agreed to a two-year deal that will pay him the league minimum. 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. The Jets host Kansas City at MetLife Stadium next weekend.

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

AAA said due to impact from the recent hurricanes, drivers will be paying the highest Thanksgiving Day gas prices since 2015. New Jersey drivers are paying an average of $2.57, 35 cents higher than the same time previous year .

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Chiefs had been trying to sign Revis for much of this season, but the former Jet only just now accepted the offer. The Chiefs will line up Revis opposite of Marcus Peters - presumably - in the hopes to strengthen their pass defense. "He's had a Hall-of-Fame career and his leadership and playing experience will be valuable to our defense".

Revis has started 140 games in 10 National Football League seasons with the New York Jets (2007-12, 2015-16), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2013) and New England Patriots (2014). Revis is a seven-time Pro Bowler and won Super Bowl XLIX with the Patriots. The 32-year-old also collected 483 tackles, two sacks, six forced fumbles and 11 fumble recoveries in 140 games (all starts).

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