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.

    I hope Dorsey finds out he is not worth what he thinks he is and then when he calls the Chiefs and wants to take their offer they will say Gee we’re sorry, but that position has now been filled.

    • berttheclock

      I believe Sutton is a little closer to the ear of John Dorsey than you.
      However, I wonder how long it will be before a Star reporter asks him about a certain team mate from the years of ’05 and ’06 at Maine?

    • Joe Myers

      dorsey is one of the top run defenders in the league . I think he would do alot better in the 4-3 . Im sure e won’t have a tuff time getting a job

  • Ron White

    Wow….I hear Canty signed with Ravens for $8m over 3 yrs…. Not sure how they compare talent wise but that is a big difference…unless there was a signing bonus for Canty that was not included..

    • Chris Tarrants

      Canty just wanted to play for the world champs but after today the closest he will get to a ring with them will be looking at theirs From last year

          I wish I could ” like ” this lol. Too much negative reactions. We already have the stars ( 6 pro bowlers ) now we just need role players.

      • Chris Tarrants

        Are you high?

        • superman_25_58

      • Joe Myers

        Iyou believe that your just a hater

        • superman_25_58

          lol

  • njjohn

    Alex Smith, Chase Daniels, DeVito, Robinson, Fasano, Bowe and Colquitt locked up and Albert for now…throw in Andy Reid and GM Dorsey and this is looking like a much better team already, and the draft isn’t even here yet. Good work Mr. Hunt.

    • superman_25_58

      Nothing but minimal impact signing

      • Michael Shaw

        There is always someone saying the glass is half empty instead of half full!!!!

        • Joe Myers

          They won’t say that when we finnaly get a playoff win .

        • superman_25_58

          Lol isn’t their though

  • sidibeke

    Seems a bit pricey, but given that PFF # you threw out, looks like a good signing, an upgrade. Wow things are different, and I have to say I like it.
