On Wednesday, Revis’ childhood friend appeared in court and admitted to pulling the accusers off of Revis and punching them after they charged, per Kinkhabwala.
Revis’ friend added he is the one whose voice can be heard on the video of alleged incident, per Kinkhabwala.
The incident that occurred in Pittsburgh last month involved two men who were knocked unconscious during the altercation.
Revis, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Jets back in 2007. He was entering the third year of his five-year, $70 million contract that includes $39 million guaranteed and was set to make a base salary of $13 million for the 2017 season when he was released by the Jets.
It’s worth mentioning that signing him to a contract won’t impact a team’s compensatory picks, considering that he was released.
In 2016, Revis appeared in 15 games for the Jets and recorded 53 tackles, one interception and five pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 66 cornerback out of 112 qualifying players.
