Robby Anderson has a chance to get paid the big bucks this offseason. The New York Jets free agent wideout has a chance to be a priority for teams looking for pass-catching help.
A.J. Green has been franchise tagged by the Cincinnati Bengals and Amari Cooper possibly returning to the Dallas Cowboys, Anderson could fetch a high price in the open market.
Per Ralph Vacchiano of SNY, Anderson could get a contract worth roughly $13 million per season which would likely put him out of the Jets' price range.
However, Vacchiano's sources also believe that the wide receiver market won't be as lucrative as previously believed due to April's draft overflowing with talent at the position. Scouts estimate that 20-25 receivers could be drafted in the first three rounds of the upcoming draft with players like Alabama's Jerry Jeudy and Oklahoma's CeeDee Lamb leading the pack.
The draft's premium on pass-catchers could slide Anderson back into New York's price range.
In his fourth NFL season, the 6-foot-3, 190-pound Anderson ranked second on the team in both receiving yards and receiving touchdowns posting 52 catches for 779 yards and five touchdowns.
Other than Anderson, 26-year-old Jamison Crowder led the team with 833 yards and six touchdowns in his first season in New York.
While Anderson has been more than solid in his four seasons as a Jet, wide receiver hasn't been a strength for the team in recent years.
New York hasn't had a 1,000-yard receiver since Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker both accomplished the feat in 2015.
