The New York Jets have claimed offensive tackle Antonio Garcia off waivers from the New England Patriots and waived kicker Nick Rose.
Garcia was a third-round draft pick of the Patriots last year out of Troy Brian Robison Jersey , but did not play because he was dealing with blood clots in his lungs. New England placed him on the reserve/non-football injury list in September and waived him last Friday.
The 6-foot-6, 302-pound Garcia told reporters in March that he was cleared to return to football. He will add depth to the Jets’ offensive line.
The Jets had claimed Rose off waivers from the Los Angeles Chargers last month. New York also has Cairo Santos on its roster and signed Taylor Bertolet last week after he was a tryout during rookie minicamp.
New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson faces a slew of charges in Florida, including threatening a police officer’s family and saying he would rape the officer’s wife.
A Sunrise police report shows the 24-year-old Anderson was stopped early Friday in a sport utility vehicle after it ran two red lights and was swerving while traveling about 105 mph (170 kph) in a 45 mph zone.
After he was stopped Takkarist McKinley Jersey , police say he made the threats and then boasted about how much money he has. Jail records show Anderson faces nine charges, including threatening harm to a public servant, resisting arrest and traffic violations.
The records don’t list an attorney for Anderson.
”This is a pending legal matter and we will have no further comments Anthony Hitchens Jersey ,” the Jets said in a statement.
The NFL is also aware of the situation and league spokesman Brian McCarthy said ”we will be looking into this matter.”
This is the latest legal trouble for Anderson, a 2011 graduate of South Plantation High School. He was arrested in May and charged with resisting arrest and obstruction of justice after sparring with officials who asked him to leave a Miami music festival. Anderson’s next scheduled court date for that incident is on March 19.
The league is also investigating that incident, and Anderson could face punishment from the NFL under its conduct policy.
Anderson set career highs with 63 catches Justin Hardy Jersey , 941 yards receiving and seven touchdowns in his second season with the Jets. He was a bright spot in the team’s 5-11 season and appeared on his way to a 1,000-yard campaign until quarterback Josh McCown went down with a broken left hand in Week 14.
Anderson went undrafted out of Temple in 2016 and signed with New York as a free agent. He made the opening day roster with an outstanding training camp and finished with 42 catches for 587 yards and two TDs. Anderson flourished in the Jets’ offense this season, establishing himself as one of the top young speed receivers in the league.
