NFL Notes: Buccaneers, Chiefs, Lions, Patriots, Raiders

  • Chiefs HC Andy Reid said that he expects newly signed CB Darrelle Revis to start for them, but he admitted that it will depend on how he does: “I’d think his role would be to step in and be a starter. That’s how I’d look at it.” (Terez A. Paylor)


On Wednesday, the Lions claimed veteran DE Dwight Freeney off of waivers from the Seahawks. (NFLTR)

Freeney admitted that he’s “completely confused” by Seattle’s decision to cut him loose, but he’s also looking forward to playing for Lions HC Jim Caldwell.
