"I felt like I got my life back a little bit," Terrell said after the verdict was announced, according to the report.
Police said they responded to a call on Aug. 16 about people smoking marijuana in an apartment building in the Bonneville area of Chicago. Officers found Terrell and two other people, along with marijuana in a duffel bag. Terrell was charged with manufacturing or delivering marijuana and battery to a police officer.
Stuart Goldberg, Terrell's attorney, said prosecutors had no evidence linking the former wide receiver to the drugs police recovered.
Judge Joseph Kazmierski found Terrell not guilty Friday after a bench trial at the Cook County Criminal Courthouse.
