Chiefs shockingly sign 32-year-old, 7-time Pro Bowler Darrelle Revis

The Kansas City Chiefs have traveled to Revis Island for help.

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

"Darrelle is a proven player in this league and we are excited to add him to our secondary", Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said.

Darrelle Revis' NFL career was thought to be over when the Jets cut him after a disastrous 2016 season.

The defensive back also played with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New England Patriots, winning the Super Bowl with the Patriots. His career numbers include 485 tackles (401 solo), 2.0 sacks, 137 passes defensed, 29 interceptions, six forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries. Instead of recycling the same guys, the team finally decided to make a move by signing Darrelle Revis.

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.

Andy Reid told reporters he polled a gaggle of veteran players before acquiring Revis, who has a shot to play in Week 12, according to the coach.

Revis is the best cornerback in Jets history and one of the best players to ever to play for the team.
