The decision comes after Anderson pleaded no contest to misdemeanor charges of reckless driving in June stemming from a Jan. 19 arrest.
Anderson was sentenced to six months of non-reporting probation in the case.
Anderson was initially facing multiple felony counts before Florida prosecutors dropped the charges. Anderson was arrested after he allegedly failed to yield during a traffic stop.
In May 2017, he was arrested for allegedly pushing a police officer at an event in Miami, but the charge was eventually dropped.
Players who are arrested are subject to potential NFL discipline under the league’s personal conduct policy.
There was a belief inside the #Jets organization for a while that Robby Anderson wouldn't be suspended stemming from those two legal issues that were resolved this offseason. But they were waiting on official word. Now we have it. Anderson will not be suspended.

The Jets offensive has suspended him enough.
