NFL says Revis not facing discipline after February arrest

NFL says Revis not facing discipline after February arrest

An NFL spokesman confirmed Revis won't face league discipline following stemming from an incident that occurred in Pittsburgh in February.

Revis was originally charged with two felony counts of aggravated assault and one felony count of both robbery and conspiracy, and a misdemeanor for making a terroristic threat.

The charges stemmed from a February 16 incident in which Revis was arrested in Pittsburgh after two men claimed he punched them into unconsciousness and threw one of their cellphones in the street when they followed him and tried recording him.

The 31-year-old cornerback was released by the Jets on March 9 and remains a free agent after a disastrous 2016 campaign.

Now unattached to a team, Darrelle Revis doesn't have to worry about an National Football League suspension further diminishing his free agency value.

In March, a Pittsburgh judge dismissed the charges against the former Jet. He's still owed $6 million by the Jets, the final guaranteed portion of the five-year, $70 million contract he signed in 2015.

"Have you seen his tape?" one general manager told the New York Daily News. "I wouldn't let him play for me for free".
