Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Zay Flowers will not face discipline from the NFL following a domestic violence investigation.

“Following a review, the NFL concluded there was insufficient evidence to support a finding that Zay Flowers engaged in any activity that violated the NFL’s personal conduct policy,” the league said in a statement Thursday, per ESPN’s Jamison Hensley. “There will be no action taken by the league.”

This comes after Christian Olaniran and Cristina Mendez of CBS Baltimore reported in February that Baltimore County Police suspended their investigation of Flowers without any criminal charges.

Olaniran and Mendez reported the police began their investigation when a woman sounded “in distress” when she called 911 in January. She also went to police in Acton, Massachusetts, five days after the 911 call and accused an unnamed NFL player of a violent domestic incident that left her with bruises.

The police report also said the player’s brother “drew a gun” but “got scared and put it away” when police arrived.

Olaniran and Mendez noted that while the woman did not name the player, a connection with Flowers was made through social media. However, the Ravens wide receiver declined to be interviewed by police.

The woman did not provide additional details during the investigation.

“For lack of a better explanation, it just means that they’ve done all the investigation that they’re able to do at the moment, and absent any further information coming forward or witness being willing to go on the record or identification that can be made as to the particular suspect in the case, it’s no longer active,” Baltimore attorney Adam Ruther said at the time the investigation was suspended.

The NFL’s investigation is now over as well, which means Flowers can participate in team activities.

The 2023 campaign was Flowers’ first in the NFL. He appeared in 16 regular-season games for the Ravens.
