Report: Jets’ best offer for Robby Anderson was fourth-round pick

Robby Anderson

The New York Jets have been attempting to move wide receiver Robby Anderson ahead of the 4 p.m. ET NFL trade deadline on Tuesday, but the best offer they have received is a fourth-round draft pick, according to Mike Kaye of NJ.com.

Considering that Anderson is relatively unproven and is on an expiring deal, this doesn’t come as much of a surprise, and at this point, the Jets may be better-served holding on to him and taking their chances with him in free agency during the offseason.

Through seven games this season, Anderson has logged 21 catches for 309 yards and a touchdown while registering a catch percentage of just 48.8 percent, which is not what the Jets were hoping from the 26-year-old.

Of course, Anderson is hardly the only New York player who has been a disappointment.

Thanks to a busy offseason in which the Jets added big names such as Le’Veon Bell and C.J. Mosley, many expected them to contend for a playoff spot. However, due to injuries and poor performance across the board, Gang Green has limped to a 1-6 start.

Anderson, who played his collegiate football at Temple, went undrafted but eventually landed with the Jets in 2016, where he caught 42 passes for 587 yards and a couple of scores.

The following year, Anderson showed significant improvement and even had a breakout season of sorts, hauling in 63 receptions for 941 yards while reaching the end zone seven times.

He then took a bit of a step back in 2018, snaring just 50 balls for 752 yards and six scores.
