Felony charges against Robby Anderson dismissed
Prosecutors in Florida will not pursue felony charges against New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson stemming from his arrest in January.
Anderson is still facing one misdemeanor count of reckless driving stemming from his Jan. 19 arrest in Sunrise, Florida, the Broward County State Attorney’s Office confirmed to NFL.com. Anderson was arrested on suspicion of multiple charges after he allegedly failed to yield during a traffic stop. He was formally charged with reckless driving on Friday.
Receivers with a season like Robinson’s 2015 campaign in their back pocket don’t hit the market in their prime. The only guy in recent memory who produced a better season during his Baltimore Orioles Jersey rookie deal before leaving in free agency was David Boston, who had significant off-field concerns (and subsequently bombed with the Chargers). Robinson doesn’t appear to have similar issues. Alshon Jeffery left after one franchise tag, and Robinson’s situation is complicated by the ACL tear, but it was a surprise the Jaguars didn’t franchise their star wideout, let alone sign him to an extension.
Game Kids Ryan Getzlaf Jersey Maybe the Jaguars know something we don’t, and the Bears will regret their decision, but Robinson is one of the highest-upside players in free agency in recent memory. For a team that let Jeffery pursue new pastures and replaced him with the combo of Markus Wheaton, Kendall Wright and Dontrelle Inman, Robinson is a legitimate No. 1 wideout as a simultaneous safety valve and deep target for Mitchell Trubisky.
Arthur Blank said Tuesday via email that there is no timetable for getting a deal done with Ryan, who is entering the final year of his contact.
The most direct and honest answer is: no need to worry, good conversations are happening, they are positive and there’s no timetable for this, the Falcons’ owner wrote.
Ryan is scheduled to earn $19.250 million in base salary this season. The Falcons missed their window to close a deal for an extension that might have lowered Ryan’s salary cap figure before the start of free agency. The fact a contract has not been finalized yet does not mean a deal won’t get done, but it could make things problematic down the road.
