DeVito ends his nine-year career having played six seasons for the Jets and his final three for the Chiefs. Last year, DeVito posted a career-best three sacks in only 13 games, but his highest tackling total came back in 2010, when he posted 59 stops for New York.
Chiefs defensive end Mike DeVito agreed to a pay cut to help the team with its salary-cap situation.
DeVito's original deal cost the Chiefs $5.4 million against the cap. His restructuring reduced that figure to $2.9 million, according to Pro Football Talk and the Kansas City Star.
DeVito's new contract is structured so that he has the opportunity to earn back most of his pay cut through incentive bonuses.
