Revis said all of that to NFL Network on Wednesday in a hallway of a Pittsburgh courthouse, after a hearing for four felony charges and one misdemeanor he faced from a fight last month.
How much the former affects the latter remains to be seen. In a just world, it wouldn’t affect his prospects at all. A municipal judge dropped all charges after just under two hours of testimony.
Of course, in a just world, what appears to have happened based on that testimony (two drunks instigating an altercation with a famous athlete who was minding his own business) should never Cheap Texas Rangers Jerseys have resulted in all those felonies — certainly not a charge of “making terroristic threats” — and left Revis in danger of a long prison sentence.

“Mike Ilitch was far more than a model owner of the Tigers franchise, the team Cheap Vintage NBA Jerseys he loved all his life and played for as a minor leaguer,” MLB commissioner Rob Manfred said in a statement released Friday evening. “He was also a fierce believer in his home city of Detroit, and the role that the Tigers and sports played in contributing to civic pride and renewal.
“Mr. Ilitch led a decorated life of service to his country, accomplishment in business and philanthropy in all of his endeavors. He was also extremely supportive of me both personally and professionally. On behalf of all of Major League Baseball and Mr. Ilitch’s countless friends and admirers throughout the game, I extend my deepest condolences to his wife Marian and their entire family, the Tigers organization, their fans and his fellow citizens of Detroit.”
Ilitch and his wife of 61 years, Marian, had seven children. Marian Ilitch and three of the couple’s daughters are among only 12 women to have their names engraved into the Stanley Cup.
