Ex-Jets CB Darrelle Revis cleared of charges stemming from street fight


Darrelle Revis has been cleared of all charges regarding an altercation that took place in Pittsburgh last month, in which two men were knocked out cold.

A witness testified Wednesday that he came to Revis's aid during the fight and was responsible for the knockout punches.

Revis' longtime friend, Rashawn Bolton, testified that he came to Revis' aid during the alleged February 12 incident and was responsible for knocking out two men, Kinkhabwala reported.

Revis, who is from Pittsburgh, added that he would love a chance to play for the Steelers.

"If you was my friend and you said you was getting jumped, I'd help you", Bolton told a prosecutor.

Revis, 31, is an unrestricted free agent, having been released by the New York Jets, effective March 9. With $6 million fully guaranteed from the Jets that is subject to offset language, Revis would be working for free if he plays for $6 million or less.

Revis, 31, is a free agent and has said he'd like to continue his National Football League career, which includes a Super Bowl championship with New England and seven Pro Bowl selections.

Revis also indicated Wednesday that he's lost 10 pounds since last season and is working with a new trainer and has changed his entire nutrition plan, per Kinkhabwala.

Revis was the Jets' 2007 first-round pick (14th overall) out of the University of Pittsburgh.
