The New York Jets will release Darrelle Revis on March 9th.
Revis was scheduled to count $15.3 million against the 2017 salary cap. The announcement came 11 days after Revis was charged with four felonies, including aggravated assault.
Revis' legal issues didn't factor into the team's decision to release him, a source said, adding that it was "100 percent football related."
The Jets made the decision internally three weeks ago to release Revis.
