National Football League says Revis not facing discipline after February arrest

Adjust Comment Print

Two months after he was released by the New York Jets, former All-Pro cornerback Darrelle Revis remains unemployed.

"ESPN.com contacted officials from four different teams â?? a head coach, a team executive, a personnel director and a scout â?? and the consensus is there's no market for Revis because of a significant decline last season and whispers about his commitment", Rich Cimini wrote Monday.

Revis was initially charged with two counts of aggravated assault, robbery, conspiracy and terroristic threats after a violent confrontation with two men in February.

It will be interesting to see what team Revis signs with if he ends up signing with a team. Teams could have been hesitant to give him an opportunity with the National Football League still deciding on potential discipline.


Revis also has played for Tampa Bay and New England.

On March 16, Revis appeared in municipal court, where the judge chose to dismiss the charges after hearing testimony from one of Revis' childhood friends.

The Jets owe Revis $6 million this season as part of the five-year, $70 million contract he signed in 2015, and the Jets' commitment gets reduced by whatever amount another team pays him.

In 10 National Football League seasons, Revis has tallied 29 interceptions, six forced fumbles and two sacks in 140 games.
