The Kansas City Chiefs are expected to sign former NY Jets defensive lineman Mike DeVito, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.
Former Jets DL Mike DeVito on his KC for a visit. Very likely he doesn’t leave without a deal.

So there is no deal in place as far as we know. Then again, I was halfway through the Anthony Fassano post when the news broke that the deal was actually done, so you never know.
It appears as though DeVito is on his way to KC for a visit. If the Chiefs really want him, he likely won’t leave without signing.
DeVito was an undrafted free agent in 2007 out of Main. He played defensive end for the Jets and has a connection to new Chiefs defensive coordinator Bob Sutton.
Pro Football Focus graded Mike DeVito very well in 2012 with a +11.5 mark. It looks like he was particularly strong against the run with a +10.8 grade. He played 635 snaps during the year. He also added 11 QB hurries, one sack, 27 stops. He worked mainly as a two-down run-stuffer.
This may not be good news for DE Glenn Dorsey. As far as we know the Chiefs have yet to re-sign him.
