New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, a multi-time All-Pro and Pro Bowl selection, is being investigated by Pittsburgh police, who are considering filing felony charges stemming from an early-morning street altercation on the South Side last weekend. We don't know the details surrounding the circumstances of this assault or why he was targeted by a group of five people, but if Revis is prepared to speak on this, he'll fill us all in on the details. WTAE also said the police retrieved video from a phone belonging to one of the alleged victims.

Per the report, sources provided the following timeline of events that led to this altercation. The men continued to follow him and started recording him on a cellphone. A friend of Revis then approached, and both men were punched, though it's unclear who threw the blows.

- A friend of Revis' approached, and the two men were punched.

According to WTAE-TV, an officer saw Revis, 31, speaking to two men. One suffered broken bones around his eye.

"Revis' lawyer said he feared for his safety and eventually went to get medical treatment".

Hopefully, Revis will be able to physically recover from any and all of his injuries sustained in this incident and it won't impact his ability to play for the Jets.

Revis played at the University of Pittsburgh and is a native of Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, about 25 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.

If the Jets cut Revis entirely, they could save around $9.3M in cap space.
