The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the club has signed free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis.
“Darrelle is a proven player in this league and we are excited to add him to our secondary,” Chiefs General Manager Brett Veach said. “He’s had a Hall of Fame career and his leadership and playing experience will be valuable to our defense.”
“We’re excited to add Darrelle to the roster,” Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said. “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.”
Revis (5-11, 198) has played in 140 games (140 starts) in 10 NFL seasons with the New York Jets (2007-12, 2015-16), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2013) and New England Patriots (2014). His career numbers include 485 tackles (401 solo), 2.0 sacks, 137 passes defensed, 29 interceptions, six forced fumbles and 12 fumble recoveries. He has three INT returns for touchdowns. Revis is a seven-time Pro Bowler and won Super Bowl XLIX with the Patriots.  
The Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, native played collegiately at Pittsburgh before being drafted by the New York Jets in the first round (14th overall) of the 2007 NFL Draft.
Even a slower older Revis is better than the garbage we have been seeing.
This is an old April Fool's post, isn't it?
Nnamdi asomugha would probaby still be better than what we've had
Was Ty Law not available?

He's currently doing wind sprints at the Truman Sports Complex parking lots.
By the comments, I can feel the excitement.

It's a desperation move and we all know it. That being said, it does have the potential to help. We'd have been even less excited to hear Reid or Sutton hold a press conference about how awesome the defensive backfield has been.
