“Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is facing charges of “robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault” after being involved in an altercation on Pittsburgh’s South Side early Sunday morning, Pittsburgh police said in a statement Thursday evening,” Kimberley A. Martin reports.
Please tell me this is a joke. First of all, Revis signed a $70-million deal ($39 million guaranteed) in March 2015 to return to the Jets. So you make all that money, and you decide to go out and be dumb? Now of course we’ll learn much more about this story in the upcoming days but what a fucking idiot.
So here is what we have so far. Allegedly some 21-year-old saw Revis, asked if it was him, and recorded the whole thing. Revis got pretty pissed and tossed this kid’s cellphone in the road in an attempt to delete the video. Of course then a fight ensued and the rest is history. Obviously there are ten different stories and a bunch of different witnesses and all that but we will see what happens shortly.Where the “terroristic threats” came in? I can’t tell yet.
In 2014, Revis was with the patriots and he actually had a pretty good season as much so where most of Pats nation were confused (myself included) when the team didn’t resign him. But Bill Belichick knows best and look at this past season 5 pass deflections and 1 interception. People where questioning whether or not he would even return and play in 2017. I think it is safe to say that this put the nail in his coffin and his days of football are behind him.
