The New York Jets have a ton of drama to deal with after Robby Anderson’s latest stunt. Plus, I sit down with Jets team reporter Eric Allen about a slew of storylines.
The New York Jets have issues at the wide receiver position. That’s because their supposed number one wide receiver has a propensity for getting into trouble with law enforcement.
Robby Anderson has now been arrested twice in the last eight months. Here are the details from our earlier report via ESNY:
According to the original report from Andy Slater of Slater Scoops and later confirmed by Daniel Popper of the New York Daily News through the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, “Anderson is facing several serious charges including harm to a public servant/family, reckless driving, eluding police, and resisting arrest.”
But don’t think the Jets will be cutting their mercurial star anywhere in the near future. He’s the team’s best offensive player and a true success story/great find by this regime as an undrafted free agent pickup.
Here are the cold hard facts. More talented players get more leeway. If this would’ve been Chad Hansen or another lower level player on the team, they most likely would’ve been released as soon as the report came out.
The Jets front office has a lot of cleaning up to do to make sure this doesn’t affect the culture they’ve developed during the 2017 season.

Here are the highlights:
- Chad Pennington will not be coaching the Jets anytime soon, too busy being a wonderful father.
- The favorite for the OC job appears to be quarterback coach Jeremy Bates.
- Some insight on the Jets potential interest in Baker Mayfield out of Oklahoma.
