Chiefs sign Revis

Recommended Posts

Thanks to the Chiefs for saving the Jets a few bucks.

Although, not even slightly surprising, the deal is exactly what I said Revis would do the entire time: 2-year deal, vet minimum in the first year.  Intentionally designed to bleed as much of the money from the Jets this year as possible, despite that he didn't earn a single penny of it.  Oh well, savings is still savings.

What’s the #?? Don’t we get some of that offset back?

He signed a 2 year deal with NO GUARANTEED $ in 2018 for the Veteran minimum of an 11 year veteran which is $1M.

Since he is a 4+ year veteran, I believe his Cap hit for the Chiefs due to the CBA qualifiers is for only $615,000 (special exception for older vets to latch onto teams at a lower cap hit than what they are paid) - which is what the offset would be against the $6M Revis has received for sitting on the couch most of the 2017 season from the Jets.

Parcells? 

Bet the Chiefs did this to create drama for Jets Chiefs. Wouldn’t put anything past the NFL

Ugh . .. forgot about that. The boo birds will be out for him and LIKE ALL FORMER JETS upon their return to the meadowlands, Revis will BURN the Jets for a decisive and victorious play Pick 6 ala Victor Green in 2002. :(

I’ll forever be distraught whenever I think about all the dignity and prestige that Darrelle Revis and Bill Parcells combined to pilfer from our once great franchise. Like horse-thieves, those two. Villains.

Their hubris tore this franchise apart and us fans paid the price.

To me..... I detest Revis and would welcome a Revis jersey burning party.

 

Revis one of the best CB's to ever play the game and one of the best defensive players to ever play for the Jets.

Now I'm confused.  Below is our exchange. 

Tom Shane was being sarcastic in his initial post.  You responded with what I think was sort of an agreement with his point if his point were taken in a non-sarcastic way.  In other words, you were (I believe) saying that "yes BP and DR are sh*tbags but there are worse sh*tbags in Jets' history".  I replied that he was being sarcastic (by calling them horse-thieves, villains, ets).  Then you replied back how great Revis is.

To straighten this out, I think both Revis and Parcells were both outstanding for the Jets and I'm grateful that both were here.

The list of sh*t bags that have played here and coached here is much greater than Parcells and Revis.

“The reason for me returning is the fire I have, the fuel I have to continue to play this game at a high level,” Revis said during a conference call. “My role is to help win. Whatever is best for the team, whether my position is playing a few downs or playing in the slot, wherever Coach wants to play me and feels he can utilize me to help win.”

Revis is reunited with Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, who was his first coordinator with the Jets. Sutton and Revis were together in New York from 2007-11.

UPDATE:

After signing the contract, Revis is now holding out on the Chiefs for more money and years.

(and, yes, this is sarcasm)

Real jet fans want to fight somebody until they read sarcasm part.

Why now? Why take the deal now?

He waited till now because it didn't make financial sense because the Jets were paying him 6 million to do nothing, but now he will still get his 6 million plus audition for a contract next season.

Real Jets fans understand and appreciate the importance of a great NFL player its not like we have anything else to root for in the last 48 years. 

Blaming Revis for the teams misfortunes during his tenure here is ridiculous and moronic. 

Football is a team sport.

The NFL is a business. 

And just like every other business, if you're a giant a$$hole in the workplace, you might get away with it as long as you're considered worth the headache, but the instant you're determined to be more trouble than you're worth, your ass will be kicked to the curb and you won't be missed.

Depends on the situation, Revis was a scapegoat here for a bad poorly coached team. 

Buster Skrine is the new hated player here. 

Who's next?

GOOD LUCK DARRELLE REVIS ONE OF MY ALL-TIME FAVORITE NY JETS

Darrelle Revis is back.

The one-time star defensive back, who had a rocky end to his Hall of Fame worthy career with the New York Jets, has been signed by the Kansas City Chiefs, the team announced Wednesday.

"Darrelle is a proven player in this league and we are excited to add him to our secondary," ChiefsGeneral Manager Brett Veach said in a statement. "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 coach Andy Reid said in a statement. "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."

Around The NFL will have more on this story shortly.
