Jurors acquitted Webster of charges including gross sexual imposition and sexual battery and a fifth count of unlawful sexual conduct with a minor.

Prosecutors say Webster had sexual contact with the girl in 2009, when she was 15, and threatened to harm her if she told anyone.

Webster admitted having sex with the girl but said that she was 16, the legal age of consent in Ohio.

Webster played for the Bengals in 2004 and 2005 and finished his career with Denver from 2006 to 2008.
