Dismissal of charges doesn’t clear Darrelle Revis from NFL scrutiny

Good news, Darrelle Revis: The criminal charges against you have been dismissed, #asexpected.

Bad news, Darrelle Revis: The NFL still may take action. League spokesman Brian McCarthy tells PFT that the Revis situation “remains under review” with respect to the Personal Conduct Policy.

Pre-Ray Rice, dismissal of the criminal case would have resulted in the NFL closing the books on Revis. Post-Rice, the league no longer follows the lead of the criminal justice system. Instead, the league does its own investigation and reaches it own conclusion as to whether the policy was violated.

So Revis will still face scrutiny and, more importantly, teams may think twice before offering him a contract unless and until the NFL does what a judge did on Wednesday.

    No wonder players now more then ever cant wait to retire.

    Why not? Perfect Rookie Symposium example of finding and utilizing a #fallguy.

    No it doesn’t clear him…

    But he plays for the Jets, 345 park Ave. Doesn’t punish the Jets…

    Does it matter anyway? Revis is done.

    Here comes Good Old Goodell………..NFL really is a dictatorship.

    I guess once you enter into the NFL you loose all your privacy. If the court didn’t find him at fault the NFL should just let it go. If you all were in that position you would feel the same. I’m not defending him just kinda suck that they get to be judge with every decision they made.

    Was is Cris Carter that said you should always have a fall guy? I think Revis utilized that…

    Revis gets the winner of the Mayweather-McGregor fight in a steel cage match. I’d watch.

  10. billjones383 says: Mar 15, 2017 4:34 PM

    It does clear him if no one picks him up. Lol

    Well, there is the law, then there is THE LAW.

    That’s because the NFL is above the law. LMAO!

    Signing with the Steelers will clear him from NFL scrutiny. In fact, Rooney will order his Goodell puppet to award the Steelers a first round compensation pick for signing Revis.

  14. jerruhjones says: Mar 15, 2017 4:59 PM

    He wants to be a Stooler. All is forgiven!

    ====================================
    Since he was released by Jets about 2 weeks ago, this is a tad stale…in more ways than one.

    If he signed with the giants they would likely get a compensatory pick and 10 million extra in cap room … just ‘cuz..

  17. maust1013 says: Mar 15, 2017 7:41 PM

    But signing with Pittsburgh would get him off the hook and he’s halfway there since he’s already used one of their judges as part of his signing bonus

    The Keystone Cops are at it again. They just can’t help themselves. They should leave it to the professionals but since it’s all about PR they have to keep the social media crowd happy.

  19. ricko1112 says: Mar 15, 2017 8:11 PM

    C’mon! He was on the Jets. He was never under scrutiny.

  20. ggreen657 says: Mar 15, 2017 8:22 PM

    NFL. Guilty until proven innocent.

  21. lifetimefan says: Mar 15, 2017 9:15 PM

    No penalty if he signs with the stealers. If he signs with the pats, at least 4 games off

  22. billburke says: Mar 15, 2017 10:55 PM

    In other words, if Revis signs with the Pats he will be suspended.

  23. thingamajig says: Mar 15, 2017 11:30 PM

    Amazing how the NFL is allowed to over rule the U.S. judicial system.

    The New York Jets can always re-sign him at a lower rate of pay. Think about it!!

    The bigger crime this egomaniac is guilty of is the game checks he’s been receiving.

    To all fan boys Goodell haters. Flex that 3 inch cep and growl big! You do know that Goodell is a paid mule by the owners, right? Just a tool, a very well paid tool to be the face and filter for the owners. He carries out their directives with minimal discretion of his own. Maybe, just maybe, instead of letting Roger ruin your lives you might consider how your owner is directing all these issues. The fish head rots from the head down. Think about that the next time you flex your fan boy 3″ gun and hate something you know nothing about and never will. Back to the sandbox you cute tykes! You are precocious and adorable!

    He should definitely be a Steelers. They specialize in suspended players.
