Anton Rodgers, George Barker and Lewis Dunk, all on Brighton's books, denied sexual assault and voyeurism at the Old Bailey in a trial which began on 21 January.
Both charges - relating to an incident involving a 19-year-old woman in July 2011 - were also denied by Steve Cook, who has since joined Bournemouth.
After more than 25 hours of deliberation jurors returned a not guilty verdict on the charge of voyeurism against Dunk.
But no other verdicts were reached, and Prosecutor Richard Barton told the court he would seek a retrial, provisionally set for April 22.
