Three men were acquitted on charges of stabbing and attempting to rob Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Mike Adams last summer in downtown Pittsburgh.

They were accused of trying to steal Adams' pickup truck last summer.

According to defense attorneys, there was a fight with Adams, who was allegedly the instigator.

Adams claimed the men stabbed him in an attempted carjacking. He had a high blood-alcohol level, a 0.185.

One defendant was convicted of escape and the other man was convicted of flight to avoid apprehension.
