Career and Life

Darrelle Shavar Revis is a former American football cornerback. He played college football for the University of Pittsburgh and was drafted in the first round (14th overall) by the New York Jets in the 2007 NFL Draft. He also played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots. With the Patriots, he won Super Bowl XLIX over the Seattle Seahawks.

His spot on the field was nicknamed "Revis Island," a phrase Revis trademarked, for his ability to shut down the opposing number one receiver. By 2010, he was considered one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL.

Revis is the nephew of former NFL defensive tackle Sean Gilbert. Revis has a daughter and a son. On December 2012, Darrelle released his own shoe, the Nike Zoom Revis, which is available in various colors. Revis is the cousin of Tampa Bay Buccaneers safety Jordan Whitehead.

On February 16, 2017, Revis was involved in a street brawl in Pittsburgh around 2:40 a.m. Revis was suspected to have attacked two men, knocking them unconscious. One follower attempted to record Revis on a cell phone, prompting Revis to snatch the phone and throw it out at the street. That night, Revis was charged for aggravated assault, robbery, terroristic threats and conspiracy stemming. Revis turned himself into police the following day and was released on non-monetary bond. All charges were dismissed March 15 after a friend of Revis testified that he was responsible for knocking the two men out.
