The Kansas City Chiefs announced on Wednesday that the club has signed free agent cornerback Darrelle Revis.
Revis has played in 140 games in 10 NFL seasons with the New York Jets, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New England Patriots. Revis is a seven-time Pro Bowler and won Super Bowl a with the Patriots.
The Chiefs have 6 games left, they have a 2 game lead in the AFC West. But they have lost 4 of their last 5 games. Coach Andy Reid today said they have no choice but to focus on the Buffalo Bills, Sundays opponent.
Buffalo Bills coach Sean McDermott reversed course. Tyrod Taylor will start at Kansas City on Sunday, a week after McDermott's decision to start rookie Nathan Peterman backfired.
McDermott on Wednesday called his decision to return to Taylor "the right thing for our team," after Peterman threw five interceptions in a 54-24 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers last week.
Taylor, who is 20-18 in 2+ seasons in Buffalo, was benched after going 9 of 18 for 56 yards through 55 minutes in a 47-10 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Nov. 12.
