NFL Network’s Mike Garofolo reports a felony charge against Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson from a 2017 arrest will be dropped by prosecutors in Florida.

Ed O’Donnell told Garafolo the charge against his client will be formally dropped in the coming days. Anderson was originally charged with felony resisting arrest with violence after being arrested on May 7, 2017, in Miami. Police accused Anderson of pushing an officer after he got into a fight with security at an event in Miami.

Anderson is still facing a misdemeanor count of reckless driving in connection to his Jan. 19 arrest in Sunrise, Florida. He was initially facing multiple felony charges stemming from that incident before prosecutors dropped most of the counts against him.

Obviously, this is a positive development for Anderson and the Jets. We now await the outcome of the other case.
