Shembo could still be subject to the NFL’s player-conduct policy and may face a suspension if he re-signs with another team.
Shembo allegedly kicked his ex-girlfriend’s small dog because it bit him. Shembo was in tears over his arrest and release from the team, attorney Jerry Froelich said at the time.
“He didn’t mean to kill the dog,” Froelich told reporters outside the Gwinnett County jail in late May.
But the Yorkie’s injuries were extensive, according to police.
In recent weeks, Shembo was seen working out at the L.A. Fitness in Buford.
