The Chiefs have struck a deal with Jets defensive lineman Mike DeVito, Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star reported Tuesday.
The 6-fo0t-3, 305-pound DeVito recorded 52 tackles for the Jets in 2012. He has started 37 games in the last three seasons.
The Chiefs will run a 3-4 defense in 2013, just as they did a season ago. DeVito was listed as a tackle (though not a nose tackle) on the Jets’ three-player defensive line.
The 28-year-old DeVito is entering his seventh NFL season.
