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

After a judge dismissed all of the charges against him on Wednesday stemming from his alleged involvement in a brawl last month, Revis told Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network that he is committed to playing next season and is open to switching to safety if need be.

Revis was arrested shortly after the incident and charged with four felonies, including two counts of aggravated assault.

Police said the incident began when a man started recording a video of Revis, and Revis grabbed his phone and tried to delete it. The friend told the judge he came to Revis' defense during an altercation and punched the men, knocking them out.

Bolton said in court Wednesday that he pulled the two men off Revis and then punched them.

Revis' friend and former high-school teammate, Rayshawn Bolton, was the other person with Revis on the night and was seen in a video in which two other men were knocked out.

"That would be a discussion with the management and the coaches", Revis said, laughing.

Law enforcement originally implicated Revis, saying he got violent after two men had recognized him and approached him on the street. When Revis was still in potential hot water for a February incident in Pittsburgh, the Steelers made it clear privately that they wouldn't be pursuing him. He has not been signed by another team and there has not been any reported interest in the seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback.

The Jets still owe him $6 million.
