The Jets have released PK Nick Folk and RT Breno Giacomini, creating $7.5 million in much-needed cap room. Folk, who joined the Jets in 2010, is the second-leading scorer in franchise history (729 points), behind only Pat Leahy. "It's a sad day, but that's the business side of things," Folk said. "I had a great seven years here. I think the only thing that would've topped it off would'e been a couple of Super Bowl wins." Giacomini, who played in only five games last season, is recovering from recent back surgery.

An Allegheny County (Pa.) judge has modified the conditions of Darrelle Revis' bond, allowing the Jets' cornerback to travel outside the U.S. for a charity event. The court ruled last Friday at the arraignment that Revis, facing four felony charges for his alleged role in a street fight, would have to surrender his passport. His attorney, Robert Del Greco, filed a petition, requesting that Revis be allowed to travel to Turks and Caicos Islands next month for his Revis Island Foundation. The charity, established in 2012, provides meals for underprivileged families, per court papers. After the event, March 23-28, Revis will return to his Florida home to train for the NFL season, his attorney said.

A Pittsburgh police spokesperson confirmed for ESPN that the video posted Sunday by TMZ is authentic in that it was shot at the alleged Darrelle Revis street altercation. The spokesperson declined further comment, noting it is a matter before the court. The video shows the aftermath, two unconscious men and an unidentified voice bragging that he knocked out both men. Revis is not seen in the video. The Jets cornerback is charged with four felonies, including aggravated assault. His first pre-trial hearing is scheduled for Thursday.
