Robby Anderson speaks out on stint with Jets full of ‘missed opportunities’

Robby Anderson, Jets

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Robby Anderson recently voiced out his frustrations on Twitter after leaving the New York Jets and wanting to change things after his departure from the team.

Anderson went undrafted in the 2016 NFL Draft but earned a three-year, $1.63 million contract with the Jets, which included a signing bonus of $10,000. He tallied 52 receptions for 779 yards and scored 52 touchdowns as a wide receiver in the Jets’ offense. The team had a subpar season and finished with a 7-9 record en route to finishing in third place in the AFC East.

In another tweet, Anderson discussed his former quarterback Sam Darnold and the “missed opportunities” between the two.

Last season, the Jets signed Anderson to a one-year, $3.095 million deal after he hit free agency. The team wanted to retain the wide receiver, but the Panthers snagged the former Temple player from their hands, which will reunite him with former Temple head coach Matt Rhule, who is now calling the shots for Carolina.

Anderson also secured the bag from his new deal, signing a two-year, $20 million contract with $12 million guaranteed. He will be a welcome addition to a Panthers side that will try to improve from their 5-11 record last season.

The departure of Anderson leaves a hole in the Jets offense, but the team quickly answered with the signing of journeyman wide receiver Breshad Perriman.

This situation is just one on the stockpile of issues that the Jets are currently encountering along with the vocal disappointment of their star safety Jamal Adams, who has requested a trade from the team.
