Chiefs sign Darrelle Revis

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Searching for help for one of the NFL’s worst pass defenses, the Kansas City Chiefs signed veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis on Wednesday.

“Darrelle is a proven player in this league and we are excited to add him to our secondary,” general manager Brett Veach said in a news release. “He’s had a Hall of Fame career and his leadership and playing experience will be valuable to our defense.”

Chiefs coach Andy Reid didn’t rule out the possibility of Revis playing on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills. Defensive coordinator Bob Sutton was on the Jets’ coaching staff during some of Revis’ time in New York, so he should be familiar with the system.

“You’re talking about one of the all-time great players at that position,” Reid said. “It’s just a matter of getting him back in the swing of things … I would think his role would be to step in and be a starter.”
