New York Jets defensive lineman Quinnen Williams enjoys good news Monday when hearing that his weapons charges have been dropped.

At least one New York Jets employee received good news recently.

Quinnen Williams learned Monday morning that weapons charges stemming from a LaGuardia Airport incident last March 5, 2020, have been dropped, per ESPN’s Rich Cimini.

All told, Williams, 22, has been cleared of two felony gun charges stemming from last March’s incident. The Birmingham, AL native was scheduled to take a flight to Alabama prior to the brush with the law.

“As we said from the outset, this matter has been resolved with no criminal charges,” Williams’s attorney Alex Spiro said in a statement. “This case was nothing more than a technical issue with the storing of a firearm, which is why the government gave Mr. Williams nothing more than a ticket.”

Williams volunteered the information that he was in possession of a Glock 19 handgun in a carry-on bag. Unfortunately for the Jets’ 2019 first-round selection, his license to carry was in the state Alabama, raising concerns by the state of New York.

In the end, the Alabama product pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct and was fined $250. He also gave up his weapon, according to the Queens District Attorney’s Office (per Cimini).

Through four games this season, Williams has played well—at least much better than what was put forth his rookie season. He currently has two sacks, one forced fumble, two quarterback hits and 16 total tackles (three for loss) on the young season.
