Jets WR Robby Anderson has resisting arrest charges dropped

17 May 2018

New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is set to be let off the hook for his serious legal matter.

Ed O'Donnell told Garafolo that the charge against his client for a May 2017 arrest will be formally dropped in the coming days.

Anderson's problems with the law aren't completely over just yet, though.

The only charge Anderson now faces from the January arrest - or from either of the two arrests, period - is a misdemeanor reckless driving charge. He was facing multiple felony charges stemming from that incident before prosecutors dropped most of the counts against him. He was on track for a 1,000-yard campaign past year before starting quarterback Josh McCown suffered a broken hand Week 14, leaving the underwhelming Bryce Petty under center for the final three weeks of the season.

Anderson, an undrafted free agent out of Temple, has played every game in his two National Football League seasons and was the Jets' leading receiver in 2017 with 941 receiving yards.

Despite his recent run-ins with the law, it seems that Anderson will remain with the Jets for this upcoming season.

However, the troubled Anderson still faces discipline under the NFL's Player Conduct Policy. He also finished the year with 63 catches and seven touchdowns.
