Jets WR Robby Anderson says he’s ‘grown a lot’ from off-the-field incidents

Robby Anderson, Jets

It has been a whirlwind last couple of NFL offseasons for New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson due to his involvement in a few questionable situations that landed him in some issues with the law.

Anderson has now been arrested twice in the last two years which saw the more serious felony charge for resisting arrest back in 2017 being dropped by the court. During an appearance on NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football,” Anderson that he has learned from the recent off-the-field situations that got him in some legal trouble.

“I learned a lot,” Anderson said. “It was a valuable lesson, but I really don’t want people to look at me and focus on that situation alone because mistakes do happen. It’s not acceptable, but I definitely want everybody to understand that I’ve grown a lot from that and I learned a lot from that. I felt bad to represent the Jets in that way, my family, the people that support me — my fans — but I want them to know I have grown past that and that’s behind me, and I’m focused on the future and improving.”

It is an encouraging sign that Anderson has learned from his past mistakes, but this should likely lead to him receiving a suspension from the NFL due to this being a repeated problem for him off the field that could see him miss a couple of games in the 2018 campaign.

Nonetheless, only time will tell if this will translate to his actions backing his words concerning his decision making.
