Mike DeVito, New Addition To The Chiefs' Defensive Line, Can't Wait To Get Started from KC Star
Mike DeVito won't be on the field for the plays that fans pay good money to see, the ones featured on highlight shows.
He won't play much for his new team, the Chiefs, on passing plays. But DeVito, a veteran defensive lineman, signed recently after six seasons with the New York Jets, wouldn't have it any other way.
He prefers the dirty work of playing on running downs.

AFC West Checkpoint from ESPN
You never want to go too crazy about a team coming off a 2-14 season, but the Chiefs don't have a ton of holes. They have improved in key spots and don't have glaring holes.

With that problem fixed, the Chiefs might look to get stronger on the offensive line, and they also could use another inside linebacker and another body on the defensive line. But that's average stuff. Pretty good for a 2-14 team.

"Let's see, what's the politically right answer?" Carr said, giving a small laugh. He spoke after Saturday's "Men Against Abuse" rally at City Hall. "No offense, but Dallas, it's the Big D. This is it right here.
"I love that because it gives me the opportunity where I have the platform to do anything in the community and this is Phase One for what I have planned for reaching out and giving back to my community. Between Dallas and Kansas City it's night and day. It's a bigger city, a bigger market."
