Revis faced five criminal charges - four of them felonies - in relation to a street altercation in Pittsburgh on Feb. 12 that also left him injured.
Analysis: Revis is a free agent after the Jets opted not to re-sign him. His $15.3 million salary-cap number already put him at risk of being released prior to the alleged incident. The Jets still owe Revis $6 million.

Revis, 31, was scheduled to make $15 million, including a $2 million roster bonus, next season - but that would have been a lofty salary for an aging player who admittedly had a subpar year.
Analysis: The move Tuesday, which was expected, makes Revis a free agent while also clearing about $9.3 million on the salary cap. Revis is also facing aggravated assault and other charges alleging he was in a fight with two men on Feb. 12 in Pittsburgh, but his legal issues aren't believed to have played a role in the Jets' decision.
