Instead of recycling the same guys, the team finally decided to make a move by signing Darrelle Revis. After all, the Chiefs had a limited salary cap situation and Revis had been sitting for over half a season.
Reid didn't rule out Revis playing this weekend because he knows defensive coordinator Bob Sutton's system from their time together with the Jets.
Revis signed a two-year deal with Chiefs, and will only be paid veteran's minimum this season.

On Sunday, the Kansas City Chiefs came into town and most thought it would be the same story as usual. So for them to be tied for last in sacks seems unfathomable. "I don't think they knew", he said.
"He is really awesome - I love the way he plays", Revis said, via the Kansas City Star.
Revis has started 140 games in 10 National Football League seasons with the New York Jets (2007-12, 2015-16), Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2013) and New England Patriots (2014). Won't be much of a learning curve for Darrelle Revis.
"Darrelle is a proven player in this league and we are excited to add him to our secondary", Chiefs general manager Brett Veach said in a statement released by the team.
The Chiefs can surely use held in the secondary, which hasn't performed at a high clip in the absence of safety Eric Berry. The Chiefs will be turning toward 10 years of experience and seven Pro Bowls in order to bolster what has become the 28 ranked pass defense in the NFL.
