This offseason, Jets WR Robby Anderson has been battling numerous legal issues. He has been arrested twice in nine months, but the Jets have had his back throughout this process.
That doesn't mean the NFL will.
Anderson, who has one of his two legal cases still in the works, knows the NFL has the jurisdiction to suspend him for his run-ins with the police.
"Nah, not to my concern yet," he told NJ.com's Darryl Slater on Wednesday. "Once my other case gets settled, then I know my lawyer informed me that we'll have a conversation with the league about that."
He doesn't see it happening, though.
"I hope not. I don't think so," he said.
The first of Anderson's two arrests came last May when he was charged with a felony for allegedly pushing a polic officer during a music festival in Miami. That case, though, was dropped entirely.
Anderson says he doesn't regret anything from this incident.
"No. The truth always comes to the light. I didn't do nothing wrong," he said. "The truth came out. I was proven innocent. I'm not really the type of person that regrets things. In life, everything happens for a reason. When you go through things, it's a lesson and turned into a blessing."
The other came in January when Anderson was pulled over for going 105 mph, and after being arrested, he said he would sexually assault the officer's wife. But Anderson's three felonies that he was charged with were also completely dropped. He still faces a misdemeanor for reckless driving, though.
The Jets would certainly miss Anderson in the NFL decides to suspend him, as he was their leading receiver last season. The 25-year-old just missed a 1,000-yard season, recording 941 yards and seven touchdowns on 63 receptions.
Though he doesn't have any regrets, Anderson did apologize for cauing bad spotlight to find its way to not only him, but the Jets as a whole.
"I apologize for being those situations," he said. "I'm doing everything in my power to avoid all those situation, because that's not me. That's not the place for me. I'm an NFL football player, so I'm doing everything in my power to avoid anything to even get me close to those type of situations.
"I had to over come adversity, but I feel like that's made me stronger and just defined my vision on my goals. I've grown a lot, overcome a lot of situations."
Normally, the NFL will wait until any player's legal case is completed before hasing out any suspensions. Anderson's next court date will be July 19 in Broward County (Fla.). His lawyer, Ed O'Donnell, believes the case will be setlled before then.
