Former Jets QB Chad Pennington, appearing this morning on "Get Up!" with Mike Greenberg, offered big praise for Sam Darnold: "I think he has an amazing future ahead of him. I think he's in a perfect situation, going to New York with Josh McCown, Teddy Bridgewater. He gets a chance to be patient ... This needs to be a long-term process for Sam and the Jets, but I think they set themselves up nicely with a quarterback who can lead them in the future for a long time to come, there's no doubt about it."

As expected, Robby Anderson's felony charge for resisting arrest with violence was dropped today in Miami, per court records. The closeout memo from the State Attorney's office said none of the police officers at the scene corroborated a claim by another officer who claimed he was pushed by Anderson at a music festival in Miami, per the Miami Herald. The incident started when Anderson, who had a backstage pass, wasn't allowed backstage, the memo said.

Former Saints S Kenny Vaccaro, regarded by many as one of the top remaining free agents, is visiting the Jets, a source confirmed. He already has met with the Colts and Dolphins. The Jets don't have an open starting job, but Vaccaro would bolster their depth, especially with Marcus Maye coming off an ankle scope. Vaccaro, a first-round pick in 2013, is a good player when healthy, but he has missed nine games over the last two seasons.

The Jets have claimed former Patriots LT Antonio Garcia on waivers, ESPN's Field Yates reported. Garcia, a third-round pick in 2017, was waived with the non-football injury designation. He didn't play last season because he was on the NFI list. Garcia (6-foot-7, 302) had blood clots in his lung, the Boston Herald reported. He participated in the first four weeks of the Patriots' off-season program.

The Jets are working out free-agent G/T Byron Bell, a source confirmed. (First reported by the NFL Network.) Bell, 29, has compiled 74 starts with the Panthers, Titans and Cowboys. He can play both tackle spots and left guard. This would be a depth signing as C/G Spencer Long continues his recovery from quadriceps surgery last season with the Redskins. Long probably will be limited when OTAs start on May 22.

Enunwa said he's running routes and catching the ball. He hinted that he could be limited when OTA practices begin on May 22, but he expects to be a full go for training camp.

Jets CEO Christopher Johnson on the drafting of Sam Darnold: "I think that we did really well. I think that the key to everything was moving up in the draft. That was not a move for the meek. In my view, it was a pretty aggressive move. People have argued that it was an expensive move. I think it was a move we had to make. We also got a little lucky. Luck goes a long way in the NFL. And we'll see how far it can take us, but I'm really happy with how things stand right now."
