New York Jets receiver Robby Anderson was charged with resisting arrest with violence in May 2017, but Florida prosecutors are set to drop the felony charge, his attorney Ed O'Donnell told NFL Network's Mike Garafolo (h/t NFL.com's Austin Knoblauch).

Last month, a different felony charge - from his January arrest - was dropped and reduced to a misdemeanor reckless driving charge.

Regardless of legal outcome, the NFL could suspend him under the league's personal conduct policy. Can the Jets trust Anderson moving forward?

When cops arrived, Captain Ortiz claims Anderson was combative and pushed him. and arrested him.

In spite of Anderson's off the field drama, he has been taking part in the Jets offseason voluntary workouts.

Last May, Anderson was arrested at a music festival in Miami for allegedly pushing a cop during a dispute.

Despite his recent run-ins with the law, it seems that Anderson will remain with the Jets for this upcoming season. Anderson has a lot to be thankful for that everything ended in his favor since his roster spot at one point was likely in jeopardy. He was initially facing multiple felony charges stemming from that incident, but those have also been dropped.
