Robby Anderson won't be prosecuted on the felony charge of resisting arrest with violence stemming from his 2017 arrest, his lawyer told NFL Network.

His attorney, Ed O'Donnell, confirmed to NJ Advance Media on Wednesday that a felony charge has been dropped against Anderson for allegedly pushing a police officer in Miami.

In fact, officials say Capt. Ortiz failed to appear for TWO scheduled depositions in the case. leaving prosecutors with no choice but to drop the charges against Anderson.

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


The 25-year-old was arrested in January on suspicion of reckless driving, evading police and threatening a public servant, but the charges were downgraded to a misdemeanor in April. Another offseason incident could spell the end of his tenure with the Jets which is the biggest reason why the organization can trust him to shape up since there would be too much at stake for him to lose otherwise.

Anderson had a breakout season for the Jets last season.

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

Regardless of legal outcome, the NFL could suspend him under the league's personal conduct policy. He also finished the year with 63 catches and seven touchdowns.
