[Update: The KC Star is reporting that the Chiefs have agreed to terms with DeVito. So he's in.]

The Kansas City Chiefs continue with their free agent moves. The first bit of news was Anthony Fasano reaching an agreement with the Chiefs. The next one is that Mike DeVito, a defensive end formerly with the New York Jets, will visit Kansas City, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports.

The news isn't a big surprise as there were rumblings the Chiefs would be interested in him. Not only is it that the Chiefs could use more depth along the defensive line but that Bob Sutton, the Chiefs new defensive coordinator, was in New York with DeVito.

The future of the Chiefs defensive line is not quite known. Tyson Jackson will be back on a new deal but Glenn Dorsey has hit free agency. Whether he returns or not, the Chiefs will need depth along the line.

DeVito, 28, has been in New York for the last six seasons, starting at least 11 games in each of the last three seasons, including a career-high 15 in 2012.
