Darrelle Revis plans to play in 2018, wants to remain with Chiefs
Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Darrelle Revis plans to come back for a 12th NFL season, and he’d like it to be with the same team.
Revis is signed for $10 million through 2018, and while he doesn’t know what will happen, he definitely wants an opportunity to keep playing.
“You never know with these things,” Revis said, via Adam Teicher of ESPN. “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.”
Revis thinks he performed as well as he could have been expected to last season considering he had no reps until signing with Kansas City in late November.
“The material I put on [videotape] from the little time I had, not going through training camp and being here for the installs, I was OK,” Revis said. “I wasn’t great or my best ever. No way. But at the same time, for what I came in here and was asked to do, for the most part I’m happy with it.
“My situation is a little different than most. We all understood that coming in. I was trying to get on the same page with what the team was doing and playing catch-up basically. … Always room for improvement. But when you look at some of the stats, no touchdowns allowed.”
Many would argue that Revis didn’t always put forth his best effort after joining Kansas City, but he may well be back with them anyway. What is very clear is that he doesn’t want to wait until November to sign again.
