Darrelle Revis won't play Week 12 against the Bills.

Revis didn't join the Chiefs until Wednesday and won't be game-ready for at least another week. There's a good chance of him debuting against the Jets, the team he's spent most of his career with, in Week 13. Revis' conditioning fell off a cliff last season but he seems to be in better shape now, weighing in at 208 compared to somewhere in the 220s last year.

Chiefs coach Andy Reid said CB Darrelle Revis could play in Week 12.

Revis has been out of the league since last season, but has been staying in shape. It sounds like a stretch for him to play after signing this late in the week, though it's possible he could be available for limited snaps. The Chiefs view Revis as their starter opposite Marcus Peters.

Chiefs signed CB Darrelle Revis to a two-year contract.

Revis had some in-season interest from the Chargers, but there hadn't been any updates on him since September. His signing is a splash move for a Chiefs secondary that's struggled opposite Marcus Peters. It's anyone guess how much Revis has left after missing the last three months and coming off a heavy decline in 2016. Revis played the first five years of his career with DC Bob Sutton, so he should be a strong scheme fit.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports the Chargers "recently reached out" to free agent CB Darrelle Revis.

The Chargers' interest makes sense with Jason Verrett headed for season-ending knee surgery. Per Schefter, Revis has been contacted by a "handful of teams" and fully expects to play this season. The 32-year-old has been training in Florida while waiting for his next opportunity. He hasn't generated much interest since being let go by the Jets in February.

Bleacher Report's Jason Cole reports free agent Darrelle Revis "has been training" and "hopes" to continue his career.

Amid questions about his commitment following a season where he was both bad and out of shape, Revis' market has yet to materialize, and it is not a given one will. Complicating matters is the $6 million in guaranteed money he is still owed by the Jets, money that will be offset by a new contract. That means he will need to get more than $6 million from his new team this season or essentially play for free. His name will continue to pop up, but it will not be a surprise if Revis sits out all season.

Profootballtalk's Charean Williams doesn't expect the Cowboys to have interest in free agent Darrelle Revis.

A Dez Bryant tweet at Revis made waves Saturday, but it's the first time he's been linked to Dallas. There hasn't been a free agent market for Revis since his February arrest, and there's been rumblings over his conditioning and commitment level. Coming off a career worst 2016, Revis would have to settle for a lower salary deal if he returns.

ESPN New York reports there's "no market" for free agent Darrelle Revis because of last year's "significant decline" and "whispers about his commitment."

Reporter Rich Cimini spoke with a head coach, team executive, personnel director and scout. Revis' questionable commitment was an open secret during his disastrous age-31 campaign. Cimini's group did believe Revis could still land a contract if he agrees to a "modest" deal and "convinces team brass he still has the passion to play." One of the modern era's most famous mercenaries, Revis has never played for less than top dollar.

ESPN's Rich Cimini reports free agent CB Darrelle Revis will not face any league discipline stemming from an incident in Pittsburgh earlier this year.

Revis was initially charged with four felonies and one misdemeanor after a street fight in February, but those charges were dropped in March. The NFL reportedly continued their own investigation after the legal matter was resolved, but they also found no wrongdoing. Even with the possibility of suspension no longer hanging over his head, Revis has not gotten a sniff of interest in the last month.

Patriots owner Robert Kraft said he "would love it" if Darrelle Revis returned to New England.

"Speaking for myself, if he wanted to come back, he’s a great competitor," Kraft continued. "I’d welcome him if he wanted to come." When pressed on if the Patriots have contacted Revis, Kraft deferred to Bill Belichick. It would be surprising for Kraft to make these comments if his coach had zero interest, but Belichick's opinion is the one which matters most.

CSN New England's Tom Curran reports the Patriots and free agent CB Darrelle Revis have not discussed a deal.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reported "numerous league sources" believe Revis will play in New England or nowhere in 2017, but the Patriots have yet to kick the tires on the declining corner. Perhaps that changes if Malcolm Butler ends up somewhere else, but Revis will need to prove he is in shape and healthy before any team is willing to take a chance.

CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora reports it's "increasingly likely" free agent Darrelle Revis signs with the Patriots.

Citing "numerous league sources," La Canfora reports New England is shaping up as perhaps the only place Revis would play. The Boston Globe advised four days ago not to "discount" the possibility of Revis in New England, but it does seem rather a stretch after Bill Belichick confidant Mike Lombardi opined for The Ringer that Revis has yet to find a new home because he "has not really taken care of his body" and "looked slow" on 2016 tape. Beyond speculation, there's been nothing concrete — like a visit — linking Revis to his former team.

According to The Ringer's Mike Lombardi, free agent Darrelle Revis remains unsigned because Revis "has not really taken care of his body" and "looked slow" on game tape last season.

Lombardi pointed to 38-year-old Terence Newman as a cornerback who has taken care of himself late in his career, whereas 31-year-old Revis has not. "He played slow. He looked slow," said Lombardi. "Players that gain weight during their career fall off the Earth." Also noting Revis had "two massages a week" during his time in New England, Lombardi believes "no one is going to take the $6 million burden off the Jets," referring to Revis' $6 million in offset guarantees. "I think Revis is begging for a job." Retirement is squarely in play for Revis.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick reportedly told Darrelle Revis "a few years ago" that Revis' skill set wouldn't translate to safety.

Per the Boston Herald, the topic of Revis eventually converting to safety came up the last time the Patriots and Revis had contract talks. Belichick "shot it down because he didn’t think Revis’ skills translated to the position." Still, buzz is growing of Revis resurfacing in Foxboro, where he would likely play cornerback if Malcolm Butler gets dealt. Revis' biggest obstacle is his physical conditioning, which caused his 2016 downturn with the Jets.
Mar 20 - 10:34 AM

Ben Volin of the Boston Globe cautioned not to "discount" the possibility of free agent Darrelle Revis returning to the Patriots.

Volin was told by a league source that the Patriots are "the only team that makes sense" for Revis. Revis helped the Pats win a Super Bowl in 2014, and coach Bill Belichick would probably love to stick it to the Jets by reviving Revis' career in Foxboro. Revis has campaigned to play for his hometown Steelers, but that interest doesn't appear mutual. Wherever Revis lands, he'll have to improve his physical fitness to have any shot at regaining effectiveness.
