After failing to find a home in free agency this offseason, Revis signed with Kansas City on Nov. 22, but sat out last week's loss to the Bills while he was still getting his conditioning in order. Now that he's had an opportunity to get more practice time under his belt, Revis will suit up for the first time in 2017 against one of his former teams. Though he may not start in the contest, Revis is expected to be a fixture in the Chiefs' cornerback rotation.
Revis is in line to be inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
The Chiefs just signed Revis on Wednesday, which didn't afford him enough time to prepare for the Week 12 matchup. The 32-year-old was brought in to reinvigorate the Chiefs' 28th-ranked pass defense, but after a down season with the Jets in 2016, it's unclear how much assistance he'll provide on that front. Regardless, Revis' absence this week likely means that Steven Nelson will see most of the snaps at cornerback opposite Marcus Peters.
Revis agreed to terms Wednesday on a contract with the Chiefs, Adam Caplan of SiriusXM Radio reports.
With the obvious exception of Marcus Peters, the Chiefs haven't gotten much from their cornerbacks this season. The 32-year-old Revis won't necessarily provide a solution, but there's little harm in the Chiefs taking a look at him as the team tries to end its losing skid. If Revis proves that the conditioning issues he endured in 2016 with the Jets are behind him, he could push Phillip Gaines for the starting right cornerback job within the next few weeks. There's also potential use for him as a backup safety or in packages that feature a large number of defensive backs.
Revis is hoping to continue his playing career in 2017, Alex Butler of United Press International reports.
Revis -- who'll turn 32 in July -- was cut by the Jets in February following one of the worst seasons of his career. He's been training in Florida this offseason and said he's willing to move to safety if need be, but the fact of the matter is ESPN's Rich Cimini reported in May that a group of NFL officials said the consensus is that there's no market for the veteran cornerback due to his significant decline in 2016 and "whispers about his commitment." On the bright side for Revis, he's still guaranteed $6 million from the Jets this season even if he doesn't play.
Revis won't face league discipline for the felony assault charges that were dropped in March, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.
Revis was arrested in February and charged for his alleged involvement in an altercation that left two men unconscious. After his March hearing, however, all charges against Revis were dropped. Upon completing its own review, the NFL also saw no reason to punish Revis, who was released by the Jets shortly after the incident. Now a free agent, the 31-year-old can ensure prospective teams of his availability, even though his poor performance last season may be the larger concern on that front.
