Report: Marshall cleared of charges

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.

Adam SchefterNYC police will not bring charges against Bears WR Brandon Marshall for a melee at a nightclub in March, said his attorney Harvey Steinberg.

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.

Playing with the enemy: Chicago athletes who teamed up with rivals

Chicago's chosen son may soon play with the enemy. 

According to reports on Thursday, Derrick Rose is in talks to join LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers on a one-year deal. 

That is indeed hard to imagine, considering the former MVP has spent years battling James for supremacy in the Eastern Conference. But leaving the Windy City to join a rival team isn't a new concept. 

In fact, a few Chicago superstar athletes have done it before: 

-- Chris Chelios, Blackhawks to Red Wings

One of the best defenseman in hockey, Chelios was traded to the Detroit Red Wings after nine productive seasons in Chicago. He hoisted a Stanley Cup not long after and finished his 10-year Red Wings career with 152 points and a plus-158. 

-- Julius Peppers, Bears to Packers

After becoming a cap casualty with the Bears, Peppers chose greener pastures in Wisconsin. The defensive end signed with the Green Bay Packers, where he's tallied 25 sacks in three seasons. 

-- Dexter Fowler, Cubs to Cardinals

Well, at least he won a ring here. Fowler's surprise return to the North Side in 2016 helped boost the Cubs to their first World Series trophy in 108 years, but after winning, the center fielder rightly opted for the money. He signed a five-year, $82.5 million deal in St. Louis last offseason.
