The Chiefs have signed cornerback Darrelle Revis, the team announced Wednesday.
A corresponding move has not yet been announced.
Revis, 32, figures to bolster the league's 28th-ranked pass defense. The Chiefs have had a revolving door at the cornerback spot opposite star Marcus Peters, with Terrance Mitchell, Kenneth Acker and Phillip Gaines each logging reps.
"Darrelle is a proven player in this league and we are excited to add him to our secondary," Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said. "He's had a Hall of Fame career and his leadership and playing experience will be valuable to our defense."
Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton is familiar with Revis' work. Revis, a seven-time Pro Bowler and four-time All-Pro selection, was at his apex during Sutton's tenure with the Jets, where he served as a defensive coordinator (2006-08) and senior defensive assisant (2009-11).
Revis, who is listed at 5-foot-11 and 198 pounds, last made All-Pro in 2014 and the Pro Bowl in 2015. He recorded 53 tackles, five pass deflections and an interception with the Jets last season, when he was coming off a wrist injury and admitted to being out of shape.
"We're excited to add Darrelle to the roster," Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. "He has experience and familiarity with Bob Sutton's defense, he's a team guy and we feel like a player of his caliber can help our football team."
Revis was due to count $15.3 million against the Jets' 2017 salary cap before his release in March, which came 11 days after he was charged with four felonies after allegedly being involved in a fight with two men. The charges were dropped in mid-March.
