In August, news broke that Miami Dolphins receiver Jarvis Landry was under investigation over a possible domestic violence incident involving Estrella Cerqueira. On Tuesday, the Broward County State Attorney’s Office announced that it has declined to press charges on the star receiver.

Landry issued a statement regarding the announcement via ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

“I am very thankful that this matter is over and my family and I can put this behind us now,” Landry said. “I greatly respect and appreciate the Broward County State Attorney’s Office for their hard work and thorough investigation into this matter and I am thankful that they were able to come to a conclusion that reaffirms the true facts that no crime was committed. My daughter’s mother and I will continue to co-parent to raise our child in a happy and healthy environment. I would like to thank my family and friends for their continued support throughout this process.”

Landry is not facing criminal charges, but as Sports Illustrated‘s Daniel Rapaport reported, that may not stop the NFL from conducting its own investigation into the matter.

“It is unclear whether the NFL has also called off its investigation, and Landry’s not facing legal charges does not mean he is in the clear with the NFL,” he wrote.

While the NFL may continue investigating the incident, the lack of criminal charges is great news for Landry who can now focus on the Dolphins’ upcoming matchup with the New Orleans Saints.
