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.

The Chiefs announced on Wednesday it has signed free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis, a seven-time Pro Bowler that has been a free agent since March 1 when he was cut by the New York Jets in a salary dump.

A source close to the deal told NFL Insider Ian Rapport that Revis agreed to a two-year deal that will pay him the league minimum.

Thomas, who stands at 6-foot-4 and 330 pounds, spent the summer with Kansas City, participating in training camp and preseason.

Revis will return to MetLife Stadium on December 3, when the Jets host the Chiefs.

Revis was released by the Jets following the 2016 season, which was the worst of his esteemed career.

And there it is, Darrelle Revis, pen to paper.

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. "He's had a Hall-of-Fame career and his leadership and playing experience will be valuable to our defense".

The Chiefs can surely use held in the secondary, which hasn't performed at a high clip in the absence of safety Eric Berry.

Revis joins a Chiefs secondary that is ranked 28th out of 32 teams in pass defense. If they face the Pittsburgh Steelers or the Patriots in the playoffs, that will be a serious problem.
