Just hours after the Bears had acquired Brandon Marshall back in March, news broke that he was involved in a fight at a New York nightclub. Speculation arose that the Pro Bowl wide receiver could be facing charges and a possible suspension during the 2012-13 season.

Those rumors were put to rest on Thursday by ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Prior to Thursday's announcement, Marshall admitted that he thought he would be cleared of all charges.

Its so important to be aware of your environment and to put yourself in clean and healthy environments, Marshall said. Theres surveillance cameras all over the place and theres not many places where a 6-5, 230-pound guy can hide. So the truth will come out and when it does, Ill be sitting in a great place.
