Troubled Jets WR Robby Anderson sent a crude shot at Fox Sports 1 analyst and Pro Football Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter on Twitter.
In the now deleted tweet, Anderson responded to the Hall of Fame wide receiver on Tuesday morning.
“Dat f**k n***a @criscarter80 been throwing shade since I was jit n lil league I become this wit out a father all dat hate you doing free promo,” said Anderson, in a since deleted tweet aimed at Carter.
There are unknown reasons why Anderson will take a shot at Carter but this another chapter in his problematic offseason.
Earlier this year, the troubled star was arrested and charged nine times for reckless driving and for sexually threatening a police officer’s wife. This is the second time he had a run in with the law after being charged for resisting arrest last summer.
Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan was able to speak about Anderson’s arrest and others on the team. As a whole, New York has had four arrests in nine months. The players who were arrested were the aforementioned Anderson, cornerback Rashard Robinson and linebacker Dylan Donahue.
“We obviously take those [arrests] very seriously,” Maccagnan told reporters Wednesday. “We don’t take it lightly. I’ve had frank conversations with both of those players, so we’ll see how things go, going forward.”
Maccagnan wasn’t the only Jets staff member to offer his comments on the team’s situation. Jets head coach Todd Bowles also expressed his disappointment in the actions of his players.
“That’s not a good thing,” Bowles said. “That’s not something we condone. You hope the people are all right in the other vehicle.”
Bowles still wants to give each player a chance to redeem themselves.
“There are some things that are unacceptable, which is a long list that I can’t go into,” Bowles said. “And there are some things that happen that you try to give them a chance, and you think they’ll grow from.”
Anderson is coming off his best season as a pro, he achieved career highs in receptions (63), receiving yards (941) and touchdowns (7).
