PITTSBURGH — New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has turned himself in to Pittsburgh police following charges alleging he was involved in a fight with two men last weekend.
Revis entered a Municipal Courts building Friday. He didn't answer questions on his way in.
A docket sheet filed Thursday says Revis faces counts of aggravated assault, robbery, conspiracy to commit aggravated assault and terroristic threats over the Sunday altercation.
Revis' attorney says Revis was physically assaulted by a group of at least five people. He says Revis "feared for his safety" and sought medical attention. He hasn't described Revis' injuries.
Police say the fight started when a man began recording a video of Revis and Revis grabbed his phone and tried to delete it. They say other men joined in and two men claimed they were punched and knocked out (see full story).
Patriots: Floyd pleads guilty, gets 24 days in jail for DUI
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — New England Patriots wide receiver Michael Floyd has pleaded guilty to second offense extreme drunken driving and been sentenced to 24 days in jail.
The former Arizona Cardinals player entered the plea in Scottsdale City Court on Thursday.
He also was sentenced to 96 days home confinement and will be required to wear GPS and alcohol monitoring devices during that time. Floyd was ordered to undergo alcohol counseling and pay a $5,000 fine.
Floyd was arrested Dec. 12 after police found him unresponsive at the wheel of his running car. Police say he had a blood alcohol level of 0.217. Anything over 0.08 is considered driving under the influence.
The Cardinals released Floyd shortly after his arrest and he signed with the Patriots, winning a Super Bowl ring though he wasn't active for the title game.
Falcons: 7 new assistants hired after Super Bowl
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — The Atlanta Falcons have finalized their revamped coaching staff, less than two weeks after their disheartening loss in the Super Bowl to New England.
The Falcons announced Friday seven new hires, including former Rutgers head coach Kyle Flood as assistant offensive line coach and offensive assistant Charlie Weis Jr., the son of the long-time coach. Also added to the staff under head coach Dan Quinn: Dave Brock (offensive assistant), Bush Hamdan (quarterbacks coach), Charlie Jackson (defensive assistant), Justin Outten (offensive assistant) and Jess Simpson (defensive assistant).
Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian and defensive line coach Bryant Young were brought on earlier, so roughly half of Quinn's staff will be new in the 2017 season. Several of the returning assistants also have new roles or titles.
Flood, who will work with returning offensive line coach Chris Morgan, has 23 years of coaching experience, but none in the NFL, like most of the new additions to the Falcons. Flood sat out 2016 after 11 seasons with Rutgers, including four as head coach (see full story).
NFL: Richardson arrested for domestic violence
HOOVER, Ala. — Former NFL running back Trent Richardson is facing a misdemeanor domestic violence charge in Alabama.
Police in the Birmingham suburb of Hoover say the 26-year-old Richardson was jailed Friday with bond set at $1,000.
A police statement says officers received a call about yelling coming from a guest room at a hotel Thursday night. It says police responded and found a woman with scratches and bruises on her face.
The statement says the two argued earlier at a Walmart store, and the dispute continued at the hotel. Paramedics treated the woman, but she didn't require further medical attention.
Richardson played football at Alabama before turning pro. He spent four seasons total in the NFL at Cleveland and Indianapolis.
Records aren't yet available to show whether Richardson has a lawyer.
