Free agent OG Rodney Austin was found guilty of assault on a female, assault on a child under 12, and misdemeanor larceny in North Carolina on Tuesday.

Austin was arrested in April and will be sentenced on Thursday. The Lions immediately cut Austin after his arrest, but left the door open for his return should he be cleared of any wrongdoing. That door has now been slammed shut. The 26-year-old's NFL "career" is likely over. Austin appeared in one game.
