Robby Anderson’s trial now set to take place during Jets’ training camp

Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson was arrested in Florida twice in the last year, and he may have to be back in Florida during the Jets’ training camp to answer for one of those arrests.

Anderson’s trial on a felony charge of resisting arrest had been scheduled for tomorrow in Miami, but ESPN reports that the new date is August 6.

That could take Anderson out of camp while the trial is going on, which would surely make the Jets even more unhappy with their talented young receiver than they initially were when he was arrested in May for an incident at a Miami concert. He was later arrested in January in Sunrise, Florida, and accused of fleeing from police and then making threats to the officer who arrested him.

The 24-year-old Anderson emerged as the Jets’ best receiver last year, catching 63 passes for 941 yards and seven touchdowns. Anderson has played in all 32 games since the Jets signed him as an undrafted rookie in 2016, but his off-field issues could result in a suspension in 2018.

  1. Throw the book at him. Players are NOT above the law even though the media thinks that they should be allowed to get away with whatever they (players) want.

  2. I just don’t understand how these guys can get the opportunity of a lifetime, one most people would kill for, and still act like ghetto punks. Doesn’t make any sense. Normally the people with the most to lose are the most careful, but not in the nfl.

  3. Business as usual for the Jets. Looks like the league will have to hand down another $1000.00 fine for this but he will receive a Juice box if he gets his community service finished within 1 month.

  4. You want to root for these guys that perform at high levels after going undrafted, but they don’t always make it easy. Hopefully, he cleans up his act and realizes this is an opportunity of a lifetime. Pro Bowl votes won’t go his way if he’s not playing due to suspensions.

  5. I have been following this forum for a couple years and I know there have been some, but honestly with 3 Black players in the news this week with arrests, When was the last Caucasian Player Arrested?
    All I hear is how black players claim they are unjustly treated, profiled, & arrested. I must be missing something, but a fact is, the Federal government and FBI found during a 15(!!!) Year investigation 17% of the Population of this great Country committed 54% of violent and Drug related crimes. That is a proven fact. I think the mindset needs to be changed from that of the oppressed, being picked on to obey the Law and you won’t get in truble. A sad fact is 80% of under 30 yr old Black Deaths are from OTHER Blacks, and 80% of under 30 yr old Caucasian deaths were from Suicide.
    This is NOT a Racist post but it is one that is comparing facts.
    IF you want equal treatment you must expect equal consequences for bad behavior.
    Unfortunately at this time, no one has the guts to say it publicly in fear of being called racist. THESE ARE FACTS folks, all are provable, none are made up and certainly NOT racist!
    Act like a civil Human Being and you will be treated that way, Those race cards all expired with the Civil rights Act…..

  6. You got to love the Pats fans attacking Anderson the day after Harmon is deported from South America for importing 2 oz’s of weed and THC oil. LOL!

  7. None of you were there, so u don’t know what happened. I DO KNOW that there are some power-tripping jerk cops out there who will hit you with a bunch of “charges”, like if youre arguing with them as theyre handcuffing you for no good reason they’ll say ur “resisting arrest”, or you slightly brush up against them & it’s “assaulting an officer”. I’d love to see what this charge of Anderson supposedly “threatening an officer” or threatening to assault the officer’s wife (which I read on another site) is about. And no, Im not some pro-Kaepernick “eff the police” type of guy.

  8. Over the past 10 years, The Jets have had the fewest arrests in the NFL with 7. (Tied with the Rams and Lions.) Pats have 14, Buffalo 14, Miami 24.You’ve heard of the glass house thing???

    You’re not wrong but knowing that:
    -Don’t argue with the police. You aren’t going to accomplish anything except pissing the officer off. That’s what lawyers are for.
    -Don’t touch an officer. No reason to ever “brush up” against a cop.

    And here’s a novel concept for some people, treat cops respectfully and you’ll probably have a much better interaction. If you are nasty and unpleasant from the jump the officer is probably going to respond in kind and there’s no way you are getting a break on anything. So many people act like jerks and then get pissed that the cops start nitpicking every little thing. This is especially true with the small percentage of power tripping cops.
