National Football League teams question Darrelle Revis' commitment to the game

The NFL says cornerback Darrelle Revis will not face discipline after he was arrested in a fight in Pittsburgh in February.

According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, Revis won't be disciplined by the National Football League for an incident that happened in Pittsburgh in February.

If any National Football League team wants to sign Darrelle Revis, it'll no longer need to worry about a possible suspension stemming from his dismissed felony assault case.

It's easy to understand why teams might question Revis' commitment to the game. The charges included two counts of felony assault, single counts each of robbery and conspiracy, both felonies, and making terroristic threats, a misdemeanor.

The head coach, for his part, said the 31-year-old Revis can still be an effective cornerback in zone coverage after losing his step or two due to his age. Revis' poor play coupled with obvious lackluster effort last season hasn't exactly made teams line up for his services.

The charges were dismissed March 16 after Revis' friend, Rashawn Bolton, testified he had knocked the two men out while defending Revis. He's still owed $6 million by the Jets, the final guaranteed portion of the five-year, $70 million contract he signed in 2015.
