This week wasn’t a good one for players who spent the majority of their careers with one team. The Vikings are moving on from Adrian Peterson, the Chiefs cut Jamaal Charles, and the Jets declared they’re ending the Darrelle Revis era in New York.
They were all expected moves for one reason or another, but Revis’ release seemed to stem from his recent arrest in Pittsburgh. The seven-time Pro Bowl cornerback is facing five criminal charges as a result of an alleged street fight that left two men unconscious.
According to Jets coach Todd Bowles, though, the incident had nothing to do with his release. It was merely a business decision due to Revis’ salary and struggles last season. That’s what he told reporters at the NFL Combine on Thursday.
