Mike DeVito's contract with Kansas City Chiefs is for 3 years

USA TODAY Sports

The Kansas City Chiefs were said to be visting with former New York Jets defensive lineman Mike DeVito and then agreeing to terms with him in a matter of just a few hours after NFL free agency started on Tuesday. Per a new report, DeVito agreed to a three-year contract.

It's not looking good for Glenn Dorsey coming back to the Kansas City Chiefs. Mike DeVito, former New York Jets defensive lineman, did agree to terms with the Chiefs on a free agent contract, according to Adam Teicher of the KC Star. And now CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora has details of DeVito's deal.

Per La Canfora, the three-year contract is worth over $12 million. It will pay him over $5 million in 2013, according to the report.

I see two big things here:

1. DeVito isn't being paid like someone who might be cut in training camp. The Chiefs are making a clear commitment to him. He is going to play next season. I would guess Jets defensive coordinator Bob Sutton had a part in DeVito getting this deal. But that commitment comes at a price...

2. Glenn Dorsey isn't walking through that door (probably not). Was there ever real interest between both sides to get a deal done? I don't know. But it sure doesn't look like Dorsey will be back. We can debate whether that ever had a good chance of happening or not.

I need to get to know DeVito more.
