Assault Charges Dropped Against Former Texans WR Mathis

Assault charges against former Texans WR Jerome Mathis have been officially dropped after his common-law wife, Erica Smith, asked court officials to drop the charges. Mathis was accused of pushing and choking his pregnant wife, Smith, in their Houston home last month. Smith, 26, has relocated to another state, while Mathis, 24, is looking for a new contract with another NFL team.

Mathis is currently an unrestricted free agent after spending three seasons with the Houston Texans. In 2005, Mathis was selected to the Pro-Bowl for his exciting special teams play, but Mathis was placed on the injured reserve before making an impact in the 2007 season.
