Darrelle Revis confirms Chiefs were interested in him during free agency

One of the free agency rumors making the rounds a few weeks ago was that the Kansas City Chiefs were among the teams interested in CB Darrelle Revis.

As it turns out, this was accurate. The Chiefs were indeed interested, according to Revis himself who told SNY's Loud Mouths that several others were interested as well.

"(It) was the PackersSteelers, Baltimore as well as Cleveland, the Chiefs, the Jets and also the Pats, so there was a number of teams there," Revis said, per NFL.com. "I sat down and had conversations with (them) to see if we could work something out."

The Revis connection comes from Bob Sutton, the Chiefs defensive coordinator who was previously in New York. But it doesn't mean anything now that Revis has signed with the Jets.

Revis was so expensive and the Chiefs had such little cap space that I can't imagine how they would have made this work. Obviously the Chiefs had a plan in place to create more cap space ... I just wonder what that plan was.
