Darrelle Revis signs with Chiefs, who will face Jets next weekend

Looking to bolster their secondary, the Kansas City Chiefs have signed veteran free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis, who last played with the New York Jets in 2016.

Revis was once a household name as the single best defensive back in the National Football League with the nickname Revis Island and monstrous free agent deals to pay for his skills.

"We're excited to add Darrelle to the roster", said Reid, according to ESPN's Adam Teicher. Kansas City and NY meet in Week 13 on December 3 at MetLife Stadium. But in the a year ago or more, however, Revis has been known as a shell of his former self and he's been sitting as a free agent all season ready for someone to sign him.

Revis won't have to wait long to face his old team, with the Chiefs traveling to the Jets for a 1 p.m. ET game on December 3.

However if he's able to manage a career renaissance, Revis and Marcus Peters would form a Pro Bowl tandem in the secondary.

Revis was released by the New York Jets on March 9, just two years into a five-year, $70 million deal he'd signed to return to the club in 2015.

Revis indeed brings experience with the Chiefs defensive scheme. "He's had a Hall of Fame career and his leadership and playing experience will be valuable to our defense".

Nicknamed "Revis Island" for his reputation for stranding the best receivers with blanket coverage, Revis' last all-pro season came in 2014, his only year with the New England Patriots and one that ended with him hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. He's recorded 485 tackles, 137 passes defensed, 29 interceptions, six forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries.
