Kansas City Chiefs Sign Mike DeVito (UPDATE)

We told you earlier that the Kansas City Chiefs were bringing in former New York Jets DE Mike DeVito for a visit and that Devito was likely to sign a deal with the team.

And now he has.

According to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs and DeVito have put pen to paper.

From the Star:

DeVito, 28, visited with the Chiefs today. He played in all 16 games for the Jets last season. The 6-foot-3, 305-pounder made 52 tackles, including a sack.

DeVito is a much needed signing, considering the Chiefs have yet to re-sign DE Glenn Dorsey. Dorsey is reportedly on his way to San Francisco to visit with the defending NFC Champion 49ers.

DeVito will be familiar with KC’s new defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, who also came from the Jets.

This move makes it three signings so far for the Chiefs. The team has also brought in former New Orleans Saints QB Chase Daniel and former Miami Dolphins TE Anthony Fasano. KC also added Qb Alex Smith, via a trade with the 49ers.

UPDATE: DeVito’s contract details are as follows:

I would say that closes the door on the Glenn Dorsey era.
