Darrelle Revis won't face National Football League discipline after felony assault charges dropped

The NFL won't punish former New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis for a street fight in Pittsburgh in February.

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 NFL reportedly continued their own investigation after the legal matter was resolved, but they also found no wrongdoing.

Darrelle Revis won't be punished by the National Football League if/when he signs with another team.

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

Revis, 31, who was released March 9 by the Jets, remains a free agent.

A friend of the veteran cornerback testified he knocked out the men, who were allegedly following Revis, which spurred an altercation.

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. Revis was charged with four felonies and a misdemeanor.
