The NFL has cleared Steelers linebacker Anthony Chickillo because of insufficient evidence, Mark Kaboly of TheAthletic.com reports.

The NFL has closed an investigation that began after Chickillo’s arrest Oct. 20. Chickillo will face no punishment, per Kaboly.

Chickillo was charged with simple assault, criminal mischief and harassment after an incident with his girlfriend. The NFL placed him on the Commissioner’s Exempt list until charges were dropped.

He rejoined the roster Oct. 31, but the NFL investigation continued until this week.

Chickillo has made eight tackles and half a sack in five games this season.

  1. NFL bans Vontaze Burfict for on field football act, then let’s guys like this and Tyreek Hill run free. And for everyone who says Burfict has a history, well so does Tyreek Hill.

  2. The Rooneys run the league, why else can a multiple accused rapist still qb them with out punishment, this guy gets off with nothing, Pouncey kicks and punches someone while they’re down and gets his suspension reduced.

  3. A lot of these instances end up with charges being dropped due to insufficient evidence.
    If I was a football player, I’d either get married, or live like a monk.
