With the news Tuesday night that New York Jets corner back Darrelle Revis was involved in a fight over the weekend, it would not be surprising of the team released him this off-season. When the season went South, he gave up on his team – like many other Jets players did.

Revis is facing serious charges four first-degree felonies, as he knocked two men unconscious. He also is facing a misdemeanor as he allegedly make terroristic threats.

He is due to make $6 million next upcoming season. However, if they cut ties, like we believe they will, it will save the team $9.3 million in cap space.

The 31-year-old had 53 tackles, an interception and five pass deflections. The one interception was the fewest since the 2012 season when he also had an interception.

When the release does back prior to the start of the league-year in March, Revis would be looking for his fourth team to play for during the 2017 season — if he’s able to play at all because of the seriousness of these allegations against him.

Besides playing for the Jets, he also played a season each with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the New England Patriots.
