  • Chiefs Sign CB Darrelle Revis

"Revis Island" has found a new home, this time in Kansas City.

But per ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Revis signing is not some spontaneous move but rather something the Chiefs have been attempting to pull off for weeks.

Many fans began the countdown to Canton for cornerback Darrelle Revis after he failed to sign with a team entering the 2017 season.

The device will be exclusively manufactured by Wistron in India, who is already manufacturing some of the current iPhone SE . The new iPhone SE 2 will be priced at close to $349, nearly half the going price for Apple's latest release, the iPhone X .

Once upon a time, Revis was arguably the best cornerback in the National Football League, a six-time Pro Bowler, four-time All-Pro and perennial Defensive Player of the Year candidate.

UPDATE: can make above the minimumRevis this year due to incentives; in 2018 he is owed $10 million, but the team can cut him before next season so that the money doesn't become guaranteed.

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. After starting 5-0, they now sit at 6-4. He excelled with the New York Jets under defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, who holds the same position now with the Chiefs.

Revis is a seven-time pro bowler who can help the Chiefs on the defensive end. Won't be much of a learning curve for Darrelle Revis.

"We're excited to add Darrelle to the roster", commented head coach Andy Reid.

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 also won Super Bowl XLIX with the Patriots.
