New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is set for free agency this offseason. The wide receiver will be just 27 for the entirety of the 2020 season and he's not only produced, but he also has tons of upside.
Due to that, Anderson is likely going to be a hot commodity this free agency. Don't be surprised if you hear that a lot of teams are expressing interest in the receiver.
However, just because a lot of teams are talking to him, does not mean they are the right moves for Anderson.
If Anderson wants the perfect fit, he needs to stay home. By that, I mean he should sign with the Jets, the only team he's played for in the NFL so far.
Here are three reasons why the Jets are the perfect landing spot for Anderson.
As I just mentioned, Anderson has played for just one team in the NFL so far. That's the Jets. Anderson was signed as an undrafted free agent by New York back in 2016 and has had four fantastic years for them since then.
In his four years, Anderson has racked up 3,059 yards and 20 touchdowns on 207 receptions (14.8 yards per catch). Making him one of their best receivers and one of the better big-play threats in the entire NFL.
The Jets have gotten a lot out of an undrafted talent. Anderson absolutely deserves a lot of credit for what he's done. But there's also something to be said about a system.
He has familiarity with it and the talent on the team. And Anderson knows he can succeed in New York. Why switch it up now?
2. Sam Darnold
Speaking of some of that talent in New York, they have Sam Darnold. The quarterback has struggled at times, but he's also shown plenty of flashes of brilliance in his first two seasons.
Darnold has the potential to be an elite quarterback, and he can be that elite QB for the Jets for a very long-time.
If he reaches that potential, wouldn't it be great for Anderson to be with him? The receiver and the quarterback could grow together. And in doing that, the chemistry would be fantastic.
This could lead to ridiculous numbers for the pairing and could be the best path for Anderson to take in order to achieve an amazing career.
1. On the Rise
It's not just Darnold though. This New York team has plenty of young talent.
The Jets went just 4-12 in Darnold's rookie season in 2018. They quickly flipped that to a 7-9 record in his sophomore year of 2019. Even more impressive, they were 7-6 when Darnold played.
Clearly, this is a team on the rise. They could turn into playoff contenders as early as next season. And with Tom Brady seemingly on the way out with the New England Patriots, could start challenging for the AFC East crown.
Anderson shouldn't want to leave a group this exciting with this much potential. If he stays, great things could be in store for both him and the Jets.
