Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis is facing five charges, including two counts of felony aggravated assault, stemming from his alleged role in an altercation that left a pair of Pittsburgh men unconscious last weekend.
Pittsburgh police on Thursday announced the pending charges against Revis, who is accused of fighting with two men when they approached the NFL star on the street and began filming him with a cell phone early Sunday, police said. The department’s online docket later showed Revis has been charged.
Romo in many ways is a tease to teams in need of a top starting quarterback. He’s a four-time Pro Bowler. Through his last full season in 2014, when he led the NFL in passer rating, he was considered a top 10 quarterback. He led the Cowboys to a 12-4 record and the NFC East title in that season, along with a wild-card playoff victory over Detroit.
But he took the Cowboys to the playoffs only four times over his 14-year career — he never reached the NFC title game — and his 2-4 postseason mark is not exactly a Manning-like record of elevating his team in the biggest games.
More damaging to Romo’s resume, though, is his injury history.
Here’s a reminder to general managers of what’s on that medical chart: a back injury that forced him to miss the 2013 season finale, a loss to Philadelphia that knocked Dallas out of a playoff spot, and required surgery; a broken collarbone that sidelined him for 12 games in 2015, a 4-12 disaster for Dallas; and a fractured back suffered this past preseason. As a result, Romo made only four starts over the last two seasons.
