PITTSBURGH -- A jury has found three men not guilty in connection with the stabbing and attempted carjacking of Pittsburgh Steelers lineman Mike Adams last year.

The Allegheny County jury on Wednesday returned not guilty verdicts on all charges against Dquay Means and Michael Paranay. Jerrell Whitlock was found not guilty of the most serious offenses but convicted of a charge of flight to avoid apprehension.

Prosecutors argued that Adams was stabbed during an attempted carjacking in June, but defense attorneys said a fight began after Adams knocked food out of Paranay's hands.

Adams, a 6-foot-7, 325-pound offensive lineman, was hospitalized for four days.
