Darrelle Revis hopes to continue with Chiefs in 2018

Cornerback Darrelle Revis had a delayed start to the 2017 season as he went unsigned for over eight months after being released from the Jets early in the offseason.

His wait for another job ended when the Chiefs signed him in November and Revis went on to play six games before the Chiefs’ season came to an end in the Wild Card round. His performance wasn’t up to the standard of his best days, but Revis said “for the most part I’m happy” with how things went given how much catching up he had to do on the fly.

Revis signed a two-year deal with the Chiefs that calls for him to make $10 million in 2018. Revis said he hopes to remain in Kansas City.

“You never know with these things,” Revis said, via ESPN.com. “This is my fourth team. Rosters always change. Even if we went the distance and won the Super Bowl, that team changes as well. I understand the situation. I’m always optimistic about these things. I’m just being optimistic and if the opportunity presents itself, you take the opportunity.”

Staying with the Chiefs on his current deal might not happen, but Revis wants to land somewhere in order to spend the offseason with his team because he “would have had more reps and been more comfortable” this year if that’s how things played out.

  1. Honestly I think Revis should just retire at this point. At some point you got to know when to call it quits cause he just doesn’t have it anymore at this point in his career

  2. Chiefs must’ve not done a defensive review if the game film yet. After 3 inexcusable efforts in tackling he surely sealed his fate.

  3. His Chiefs two-year deal is about as fake as the Patriots two-year deal. Both were meant to blow up in year two. The problem this time around is that Revis probably won’t get much more than $2.5 million on a one year flyer from anyone. He’ll only be 32 years old, but 32 for him may as well be 37.

  4. Revis isn’t worth more than the Veteran minimum at this point. If he’d sign a 1 year deal like that someone would sign him but it’s 50/50 that he’d make it to week 1 on any team at this point.

    that’s what the Steelers said about James Harrison

  6. I find it bizarre to read a post from someone who, I’m guessing, works for a living….and doesn’t understand why Revis would want to continue to be employed earning TEN MILLION DOLLARS for the next year.

    Yeah, he should definitely call it quits. Who needs that aggravation?

    No one ever accused James Harrison of lack of effort (including the Steelers), but Revis flat out quit on the Chiefs.

  8. If a player is allowed “to make a business decision” (i.e not try and avoid a hit) then what kind of message does that send to the rest of the team?

    If you don’t play hard, I don’t want you on my team.

  9. I saw this guy shy away from at least 5 tackles in the 3 Chiefs games I saw. How would they want you back? It’s on film, good sir. Nobody sane will want you on the team.

  10. “I find it bizarre to read a post from someone who, I’m guessing, works for a living….and doesn’t understand why Revis would want to continue to be employed earning TEN MILLION DOLLARS for the next year.”

    Yeah but he’s already made over 100 million. How much does any one person and their family really need? Are the extra few millions worth it if he gets hurt and can’t walk well the rest of his life for instance?

  11. Have hated Revis since the day he started listening to his loser Uncle Sean Gilbert. Could have been the best of all time.

  12. Good luck remaining with KC, the Chiefs will be slicing and dicing. in fact cutting Revis
    post june 1st actually saves KC cap money;

    Post june 1st cuts coming;
    Darrell MEvis – gone 4.5 million
    Alex Smith gone – saves 17 million
    Tamba Hali gone – saves 8 million
    Allan Bailey gone – saves 6 million
    Dee Ford gone – saves 8.7 million

    That is a lot of money freed up to sign some help in free Agency for defensive help, and another WR
