Looking to clear up issues on the defensive end, the Kansas City Chiefs (6-3) announced on Wednesday that the team has signed veteran cornerback Darrelle Revis. The 32-year-old has not been on an NFL roster since the New York Jets released him after the 2016 season.

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. Revis could play for the Chiefs on Sunday against the Buffalo Bills, Coach Andy Reid said.

"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." [Revis] has experience and familiarity with [defensive coordinator] Bob Sutton's defense, he's a team guy, and we feel like a player of his caliber can help our football team."

Revis is a seven-time pro bowler who can help the Chiefs on the defensive end. The team currently sit at 28th in passing yards allowed. Over his 10-year career, Revis has 29 interceptions, 483 tackles, two sacks, six forced fumbles and 11 fumble recoveries. He earned the nickname "Revis Island" for his defensive prowess.

"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.''

Revis has played for the Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the New England Patriots.
