Rapoport says that the deal is getting worked out as we speak and he is heading to Kansas City … which sounds like it might be a close to done deal.
DeVito knows that this is his biggest and best chance at a big deal. If the Chiefs are the team that are going to make that happen, it’s hard to fault DeVito for wanting to reunite with Bob Sutton, the Chief’s DC and former linebacker coach with the Jets. Rumor is that Sione Pouha is not expected to return to the Jets based on getting cut today … so the Jets are going to have to address the hole that would be created by losing both DeVito and Pouha. While the emphasis going into the draft has been on edge players for the Jets, today might shake that up.
