On Wednesday, Kansas City Chiefs made a surprising move by signing cornerback Darrelle Revis. The seven-time pro bowler remained unsigned since the New York Jets cut him after the 2016 season.
In a statement, Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said, “Darrelle is a proven player in this league and we are excited to add him to our secondary. He’s had a Hall of Fame career and his leadership and playing experience will be valuable to our defense.”
Chiefs Coach Andy Reid added, “We’re excited to add Darrelle to the roster. He has experience and familiarity with Bob Sutton’s defense, he’s a team guy and we feel like a player of his caliber can help our football team.”
As per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, it is a 2-year deal with no guaranteed money for the next season. “The #Chiefs signed CB Darrelle Revis to a 2-year deal, source said. There is no fully guaranteed money for 2018. Minimum for 2017″, the Ian Rapport wrote on twitter.
The 32-year-old cornerback has recorded 140 starts over 10 seasons with the Bucs, New England Patriots and New York Jets. His achievements include 7 Pro Bowl nods, 3 pick sixes, 6 forced fumbles, 29 interceptions and a Super Bowl ring as a member of the New England.
On Wednesday, Revis said, “Bob Sutton has been vital to my success. He’s one of the reasons I wanted to come here.”
We wish a good luck to Revis and hope that he make best use of this opportunity and get huge success in his career.
