  • Beyond that, Revis has an opportunity to earn another $3.5 million in roster bonuses in 2018 tied to the Chiefs’ success during the 2017 postseason, $1.75 million if he plays more than 50 percent of the snaps in the AFC Championship game and the Chiefs win, and $3.5 million if he plays more than 50 percent of the snaps and the Chiefs win the Super Bowl.

Obviously stuck around in town this weekend, got a bunch of treatment on it.
