Could legal problems lead to end of Darrelle Revis’ career?

Darrelle Revis

Darrelle Revis was already entering an offseason of uncertainty before he had multiple charges brought against him for his alleged role in a street brawl in Pittsburgh over the weekend. Now, some are wondering if he could call it a career.

There was already speculation that Revis could retire if the New York Jets release him prior to next season, which seems like a good possibility. As Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports notes, those rumblings have gotten even louder now that the 31-year-old finds himself in legal trouble.

A warrant has been issued for Revis’ arrest, and he is expected to turn himself in either Friday or Saturday. He has been charged with four felonies and one misdemeanor.

Revis’ attorney, Blaine Jones, claims the seven-time Pro Bowler was defending himself after being attacked by multiple men. While police believe Revis took a cell phone out of a man’s hand and tried to delete a video before two men were knocked unconscious, Jones says Revis was unsure if the object the man was holding was a weapon.

Between the legal issues, Revis’ massive contract and the cornerback’s horrendous play in 2016, retirement would hardly be a surprise.
