Revis was facing two counts of felony aggravated assault, a felony count each of robbery and conspiracy and a misdemeanor charge of making terroristic threats after an incident in Pittsburgh in February.

Mr. Revis was charged in connection with a confrontation at East Carson and 23rd streets that police said involved at least eight men, two of whom were knocked unconscious.

Revis appeared in municipal court Wednesday where the judge chose to dismiss the charges after hearing testimony from one of Revis' childhood friends.

Revis, who is from Pittsburgh, added that he would love a chance to play for the Steelers. According to Kinkhabwala, Bolton said it was his voice on a video, obtained by TMZ Sports, heard bragging about knocking them out and telling others, "Shut up before I knock your [expletive] out next". His $15.3 million salary-cap number already put him at risk of being released by the Jets prior to the alleged incident.

A seven-time Pro Bowl selection, Revis helped lead the Jets to consecutive AFC Championship appearances in 2009 and 2010. But his Pittsburgh-based attorney, Blaine Jones, told the NFL Network last month Revis was the victim.

Now that Revis has been cleared, his next step is finding a new home.

Revis was the Jets' 2007 first-round pick (14th overall) out of the University of Pittsburgh.
