FLOWERY BRANCH The Atlanta Falcons have passed on re-signing linebacker Prince Shembo, who recently settled his court case in Gwinnett County.

The Falcons signed three players and released one on Sunday to go back up the 90-man limit for training camp.

I think that we are just happy right now where we are at with the linebackers, Falcons coach Dan Quinn said on Monday. Were just trying to like heck to keep working those guys as we are going through it.

Felony animal-cruelty charges against Shembo were recently dismissed in Gwinnett County after he pleaded to a misdemeanor and a fine. Shembo, who was charged with killing his ex-girlfriends dog, on May 29, was immediately waived by the team.

Because it was established that the dog bit Shembo first, the charges were reduced. He pleaded to a misdemeanor and a $1,000 fine.

Shembo could still be subject to the NFLs player-conduct policy and may face a suspension if he re-signs with another team.

Shembo allegedly kicked his ex-girlfriends 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 didnt mean to kill the dog, Froelich told reporters outside the Gwinnett County jail in late May.

But the Yorkies injuries were extensive, according to police.

In recent weeks, Shembo was seen working out at the L.A. Fitness in Buford.

Unf*cking believable. He gets a slap on the wrist. Tiny dog nips him and he stomps it to death. The prosecutor has the evidence to nail him but didn't because they are lazy, and want to get the ordeal over with. Some team will pick him up because it is about money, and people will forget because it's "just" a dog.

It would be like if an 3 year old taps me, and I slam the child on the ground several times, causing the child's death, and my excuse is "the kid hit me first".

There is no such thing as justice. It is a fairy tale we wish existed, but we know in our hearts never actually occurs.

i dont care about shembo or his off the field situation if you are looking for honesty.

as most of us don't, I think his point in the post you responded to, is as soon as he gets signed and makes a tackle somewhere, there will be 19 threads on 'we should have kept him'

kind of like the chase coffman threads after he caught that touchdown last year

You said "just" because it's a dog. How many investigations have you heard of where a dog or cat was run over by a car? Let's say you were looking at your radio and hit a dog while driving down the road, are you going to call the cops and confess to vehicular manslaughter?

For someone to stomp a dog to death shows some pretty serious mental issues but comparing it to a child is a huge stretch.
