The New York Jets have gotten more bad news about one of their players, this time WR Robby Anderson.

In the recent past, the New York Jets have had players find themselves in trouble with the law. Players such as Sheldon Richardson is no stranger to law enforcement

Austin Seferian-Jenkins is facing a two-game suspension for his DUI incident that was before he became a Jet.

But now the latest New York Jets player to be in trouble with law enforcement is wide receiver, Robby Anderson. Anderson reportedly was arrested at a concert in Miami for resisting arrest.

According to Connor Hughes of, the police report stated [Robby Anderson] was fighting with security after being told to leave. [Robby Anderson]  refused to leave and was told by (officer) to sit on the ground. [Robby Anderson]  tensed his body and pushed (officer). [Robby Anderson]  was redirected to the ground and continued to fight with police and security. DEF arrested. 

Anderson now will be charged with one felony count of resisting arrest with violence and obstruction of justice. This is not what the New York Jets need.

Anderson emerged on the scene last year and became the team’s number three receiver behind Brandon Marshall and Quincy Enunwa.

As a undrafted rookie free agent, last season Anderson had 42 receptions for 587 yards and two touchdowns. With Marshall gone, the Jets are looking for Anderson to build off his solid rookie campaign.

A much bigger role is expected of him he just can’t find himself in this kind of trouble. It is possible that the NFL could suspend him for the incident. Jets wide receiver Jalin Marshall is already suspended for the first four games because of PED’s.

Perhaps if Anderson is suspended then other wide receivers could emerge and take playing time away from Anderson. Guys like Charone Peake, or their rookie wideouts ArDarius Stewart and Chad Hansen.
