Darrelle Revis‘ new deal with the Chiefs could prove to be very lucrative for this season and next. After Revis is done double-dipping in 2017, he could collect up to $13.5MM in 2018, Field Yates of ESPN.com hears. That’s a ton of money for a player who some say is over the hill and under-motivated, but the Chiefs felt they had to take the risk to beef up their secondary. It also helps that KC can bail on the deal without major penalty before the start of next season. Revis’ $1.015MM base salary for next year becomes guaranteed if he is on the roster on the fifth day of the 2018 league year, plus $185K more available through a workout bonus. If he stays on the roster, he’ll earn a weekly roster bonus of $550K for each game. All in all, he’d see $8.8MM in bonuses if he remains with the team throughout the season – even if he’s on injured reserve or the physically unable to perform list.
