Darrelle Revis Headshot

Revis won't face league discipline for the felony assault charges that were dropped in March, ESPN's Rich Cimini reports.

Revis was arrested in February and charged for his alleged involvement in an altercation that left two men unconscious. After his March hearing, however, all charges against Revis were dropped. Upon completing its own review, the NFL also saw no reason to punish Revis, who was released by the Jets shortly after the incident. Now a free agent, the 31-year-old can ensure prospective teams of his availability, even though his poor performance last season may be the larger concern on that front.

Kyle Long Headshot

Long (ankle) is expected to move from right guard to left guard during the 2017 season, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports.

If the Bears carry forth with their plan to move Long, it will represent the 28-year-old's third position change in as many seasons, after he previously played right tackle in 2015 and right guard in 2016. Long, who is still rehabbing an ankle injury suffered last November, possesses the athleticism and skill needed to thrive at any position on the offensive line save for center, so the move to left guard, which he played during college, shouldn't prove to be too difficult a transition. After serving as the left guard in his first season with the Bears, Josh Sitton is expected to claim Long's old spot on the right side. Sitton had previously played right guard in his first four seasons with the Packers.

Ladarius Green Headshot

Green (concussion) wants to sign with a new team and play this season, ESPN.com's Jeremy Fowler reports.

Signed to a four-year, $20 million contract last offseason, Green was released by the Steelers on Thursday after failing a physical. He's apparently still dealing with symptoms from last season's concussion, which was at least the third significant head injury of his pro career. Green also dealt with ankle injuries each of the past three seasons, with the most recent one requiring major surgery last offseason and leading to an eight-game absence to start the 2016 campaign. He should draw interest from quite a few teams if he's eventually able to pass a physical, as his career marks of 14.6 yards per catch and 9.0 yards per target are top-notch for a tight end. Green only has eight touchdowns in 53 games through five seasons, but he's shown a penchant for scoring from distance that's rare at his position, with seven of those TDs spanning 19 or more yards. The Steelers, meanwhile, are left with Jesse James and Xavier Grimble at the top of the depth chart at tight end.
