--Felony charges against New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson following a January arrest for reckless driving have been dropped.

Anderson, 24, now faces one misdemeanor count of reckless driving, with other charges not filed due to "insufficient evidence," according to the Broward County State Attorney's Office. He could receive a maximum sentence of 90 days in jail or 90 days of probation if convicted.

Anderson was pulled over at 2:15 a.m. on Jan. 19 in Sunrise, Fla., for driving 105 mph in a 45 mph zone and running two red lights, according to the Broward County Sheriff's Office police report. The report added that after being pulled over, Anderson boasted about how much money he makes and threatened to sexually assault the officer's wife.

--The Jets plan to sign former Detroit Lions center Travis Swanson, according to an NFL Network report.

New York has a hole at center after 2017 starter Wesley Johnson signed with Detroit as a free agent last week.

Swanson, 27, started 42 of 53 games played across four seasons with the Lions, who drafted him in the third round in 2014. He suffered concussions that kept him out for stretches of each of the last two seasons.

--Free-agent linebacker Paul Worrilow agreed to join the Philadelphia Eagles on a one-year deal, the team announced.

Worrilow, who turns 28 on May 1, started eight games last season for the Detroit Lions after joining them on a one-year deal. He spent the first four seasons of his career with the Atlanta Falcons, who he signed with as an undrafted free agent out of Delaware in 2013.

The five-year veteran has 48 tackles in 25 games (nine starts) over the last two seasons after totaling 365 in 47 games (43 starts) from 2013-15. He also nabbed a pair of interceptions in 2015 and all four of his career sacks came in his first two seasons.

--After an image of what is apparently the Tennessee Titans' new jersey emerged on social media, the NFL is investigating the source of the photo, according to a report from the Tennessean. The team is scheduled to debut its new look at an announcement show on Wednesday night.

The NFL declined to comment and the Titans did not respond to a request for comment.

The image, which emerged Monday evening, appears to show a retail version of the Titans' new uniforms, featuring quarterback Marcus Mariota's No. 8. It's navy with light blue stripes down the sides, a new number font and a gray shoulder yoke.
