Coming off a poor season, Darrelle Revis needed help to stay with the New York Jets. Getting arrested on four felony charges didn’t help his cause.
Just shortly after a week after the 31-year-old was released on bond for an incident he was involved in where he was alleged to have knocked out two men, the Jets have announced Tuesday that they have released the veteran CB.
We have informed CB Darrelle Revis of his impending release.

Jets owner Woody Johnson issued a statement via the team’s website –
“Darrelle Revis is one of the greatest players to ever wear a Jets uniform. His combination of talent, preparation and instincts is rare and helped him become one of the most dominant players of his generation. I appreciate Darrelle’s contributions to this organization and, wherever his career takes him, his home will always be here with the Jets.”
