Darrelle Revis won't face league discipline after charges dropped

Former New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis will not face any National Football League discipline after all charges were dropped in relation to a March assault case in Pittsburgh, NJ Advanced Media reports.

In February, the cornerback was arrested for allegedly being involved in a street fight that left two men unconscious.

Darrelle Revis reportedly will not be disciplined by the NFL.

The league completed its review of the case, which began following the dismissal of charges, under its personal-conduct policy.

Darrelle Revis remains available on the free-agent market after being released by the New York Jets earlier this offseason. The Jets released him on March 9 and still owe him $6 million, which is the final guaranteed portion of the contract he signed in 2015. The charges included two counts of felony assault, single counts each of robbery and conspiracy, both felonies, and making terroristic threats, a misdemeanor.

Revis countered he was acting in self defense, and his friend Rashawn Bolton testified it was he who threw the punches. A four-time All-Pro, he saw his play slip badly last season leading the Jets to part ways with him.
