The judge has required that Revis attend all of the hearings and he’s barred from having any contact with the alleged victims and witnesses including on social media. The next court date for this case will be next Thursday.
Revis’ attorney, Blaine Jones, removed himself from the case after Friday night’s arraignment. Jones tells Harvey that he thinks this is a “good case” for Revis and he was retained just for pre-trial services.
Jones believes the video of the incident involving Revis will have a positive impact on the case.
On Friday, Jets CB Darrelle Revis officially turned himself in to Pittsburgh police for the incident that took place last weekend.

Jason La Canfora mentions that he’s spoken to a number of NFL executives around the league who expect Darrelle Revis to retire if he’s released by the Jets following the news that he’s being charged in an incident that took place this past weekend.
La Canfora can’t see him playing under a one-year, prove-it contract and he’s made enough money over his career to walk away. It’s possible that this arrest could void the remaining $6 million guaranteed in his contract.
Blaine Jones, the attorney for Jets CB Darrelle Revis, tells Rich Cimini of ESPN that Pittsburgh police have informed him that his client is being charged with robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy and aggravated assault.
Jones added that an arrest warrant is being issued for Revis and he plans to turn himself into authorities at some point in the next 24-48 hours, according to TMZ.
The Pittsburgh police released a statement saying CB Darrelle Revis could face four charges for the incident, including robbery, terroristic threats, conspiracy, and aggravated assault, per Rich Cimini of ESPN.
Police were able to confirm Revis’ identity in a video obtained from one of the alleged victims.
The report reads that Revis was approached by two males, one of which began recording their interaction on a cellphone video. Revis later took the phone from the owner in an attempt to delete the video and threw the phone after.
A verbal altercation ensued and another man came to Revis’ aide. Both the alleged victims said they were punched and remember waking up to police.
The Jets have released a statement regarding the incident involving CB Darrelle Revis.
“We’ve spoken to Darrelle. We’re aware of the incident. We’ll have no further comment.”
According to the report, a police officer saw Revis speaking to two individuals and when he returned, the two men were knocked out and Revis was gone.
Pittsburgh police are considering filing felony charges for the incident and have obtained a video from a phone belonging to one of the alleged victims. Revis allegedly took the phone from the owner and tried to delete the video and later threw the phone.
According to CBS Pittsburgh, Jets veteran CB Darrelle Revis was injured in an altercation that took place in Pittsburgh last weekend.
Revis was allegedly assaulted by a group of five people and suffered undisclosed an injury. Revis’ lawyer said he feared for his safety and was eventually taken to get medical treatment for his injury.
Revis was in Pittsburgh to visit with his family and friends.
There has been a lot of talk about Revis’ future with the Jets now that he’s coming off of a disappointing season and carries a high cap figure.
It’s possible the Jets could approach him about a pay cut and a possible move to safety, but we’ll have to see if this is really something he’ll be willing to do.
Revis stands to make $15 million in 2017, which includes a $2 million roster bonus on the second day of the league year, so the Jets would almost certainly make a decision on his future by then.
Revis, 31, is a former first-round pick of the Jets back in 2007. He’s entering the third year of his five-year, $70 million contract that includes $39 million guaranteed and stands to make base salaries of $17 million (2016), $13 million (2017), and $10 million (2018-2019) over the remainder of the contract.
According to OverTheCap.com, Revis still has $6 million of his 2017 salary guaranteed, which means releasing would free up $7,333,333 in available cap space while creating $8 million in dead money. However, those figures could improve to $9 million in available cap space while creating $6,333,333 in dead money if he was designated as a post-June 1 release.
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.
