Robby Anderson pled no contest to a reckless driving charge.

All other charges from Anderson's January incident had been dropped, but he was still facing a misdemeanor charge. He was given six months of non-reporting probation. This wraps up all of Anderson's legal issues, but he could still face discipline from the league.

Terrelle Pryor blames his down 2017 on his ankle injury.

Pryor, who made nine appearances for the Redskins before landing on injured reserve, said he tore his deltoid ligament in the Redskins' opener. The injury required surgery after his I.R. placement. "I couldn't focus on my game because I was worried about my foot," Pryor said. "It took control of my mind. Right now, I'm healthy and ready to get back to form and have a dominant year." Pryor actually isn't healthy as he deals with a foot issue, but he's optimistic he will be ready for camp. Pryor is a wild card in a receiver corps with targets for the taking.

ESPN New York's Rich Cimini doesn't expect the Jets to give up on second-year WR ArDarius Stewart.

Stewart is buried on the Jets' depth chart behind Robby Anderson, Quincy Enunwa, and Jermaine Kearse. With Chad Hansen outplaying him in offseason practices and Terrelle Pryor owed $2 million guaranteed, he's not a lock for a roster spot, but still has the support of GM Mike Maccagnan. The Jets should open the season with six receivers.

Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News expects sophomore Elijah McGuire to be the Jets' third-down back this season.

"Eli looks fantastic to be perfectly honest," RBs coach Stump Mitchell said. "I’ll tell you who I see Eli as — and he’s in the Hall of Fame. Eli has the skill set to be a LaDainian Tomlinson if he was given that opportunity." Hefty praise for the 2017 sixth-rounder. McGuire posted an 88-315-1 rushing line as a rookie, adding 17-177-1 as a receiver. The Jets signed Isaiah Crowell to a $12 million deal in March for early downs, and it sounds like McGuire has the edge over Bilal Powell for pass-game work. The Jets can save $4 million cutting Powell.

Jets signed DE Courtney Upshaw.

The ex-Raven appeared in 13 games for the Falcons last season, notching one sack on 197 snaps. He will have a tough time cracking the 53-man roster in New York.

Jets coach Todd Bowles said No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold will open training camp No. 3 on the depth chart behind Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater.

Unsurprisingly, Josh McCown will be with the 1s, but it will be Teddy Bridgewater with the 2s following an impressive offseason program. OC Jeremy Bates has said Darnold will be given an opportunity to win the starting job in camp, but McCown is probably the favorite to be under center in Week 1 before Darnold ultimately, perhaps quickly, replacing him.
Jun 14 - 3:19 PM

Jets coach Todd Bowles said Josh McCown will open camp as the No. 1 quarterback.

He quickly added the Week 1 starter remains up in the air. On Wednesday, Jets OC Jeremy Bates said No. 3 overall pick Sam Darnold is in the running for the starting job, but it is clear he will have to earn it in camp. That said, it would be somewhat surprising if the rookie is not under center Week 1.

Robby Anderson said he has turned his life around after a string of arrests, and he does not expect to face any league discipline.

"As you get older, you always want to mature and grow," said Anderson at Jets minicamp. "And that's my vision, that's my goal. I've grown a lot." Anderson also thanked the Jets' organization for standing behind him through difficult times. Last May, Anderson was arrested for resisting arrest, but charges were recently dropped. Anderson still faces misdemeanor charges for allegedly driving 105 MPH in a 45 MPH zone, then verbally berating the officer. Jets beat writers seem to be anticipating a short 2018 suspension.

Terrelle Pryor's (ankle surgery) training camp status is "up in the air."

Pryor shed his walking boot at minicamp on Wednesday, but this is an injury that has lingered since last season in Washington. Pryor did receive $2 million in guaranteed money on his one-year, $4.5 million pact, and that should ensure he has an Opening Day roster spot. His role on the team is to be determined.
Jun 13 - 2:39 PM

Jets OC Jeremy Bates said at minicamp Wednesday that Sam Darnold is in the running to start Week 1.

It's hardly a groundbreaking idea for a team to start the No. 3 pick in the draft in Week 1, but the Jets have viable alternatives in Josh McCown and Teddy Bridgewater. This is a different approach from the Browns, who have promised to start Tyrod Taylor over Baker Mayfield. "Are we giving him bits and pieces of the offense or are we throwing everything at him? We’re throwing everything at him," said Bates. "If he can handle it, if he can prove that he’s the starter, then that will take place when the time comes."

Jets TE Jordan Leggett estimates he's between 90-100 percent healthy after missing his entire rookie season with a knee injury.

The No. 150 overall pick of last year's draft, Leggett first injured his knee in the preseason finale. He thought he might return in September and October before ultimately ending up on injured reserve in November. He underwent surgery, deemed a scope. Leggett is competing with rookie Chris Herndon to replace Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Leggett is considered to have a leg up.

Sam Darnold could open the season as the Jets' third-string quarterback.

This would only happen if the Jets keep Teddy Bridgewater. The Jets want Darnold to develop and could make him a weekly inactive until he's ready to start. The youngest quarterback in the league, Darnold may follow the same rookie-year track as Jared Goff.
Jun 9 - 7:04 PM

Jets OLB David Bass got first-team reps during OTAs.

Bass re-signed for the veteran minimum after appearing in 13 games (two starts) last year. The Jets have major concerns at the outside linebacker spots, with Bass and Lorenzo Mauldin competing to start opposite Jordan Jenkins. It's possible they add a pass rusher before training camp.

Jets S Rontez Miles will miss 3-4 months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn meniscus.

It explains the Jets' 11th-hour signing of S J.J. Wilcox on Tuesday after he appeared committed to the 49ers. Miles played just 125 defensive snaps last season but is one of the key cogs for the Jets' special teams units.
Jun 6 - 10:35 AM

Jets signed CB J.J. Wilcox.

Wilcox was ready to sign on the dotted line with the 49ers but evidently got "stage fright." He's now flying cross country to ink with the Jets. The ex-Cowboy and 2017 Steeler was cut by Pittsburgh in late April. He will fight for a role on special teams with the safety-heavy Jets.
