Robby Anderson entered NFL free agency expecting to have a healthy amount of teams interested in his services. Despite his wishful thinking, Anderson's market in free agency has been showing little to no progress thus far, per Brian Costello in the New York Post.
In recent years, teams in the NFL have been looking to add wide receivers that can stretch the field vertically. While Anderson can bring that to an offense, not many teams have been willing to pay the speedy wideout what he's asking for.
Prior to free agency, there were reports that Anderson could return to the New York Jets this offseason. With Anderson still waiting for offers from other teams, the Jets could get him for a cheaper price than expected.
Back in 2016, New York signed Anderson as an undrafted free agent out of Temple. In his first four seasons, Anderson has served as the team's deep threat in the aerial attack, averaging 14.8 yards per reception.
Anderson's best season came in 2017 when he corralled 63 receptions for 941 yards and seven touchdowns. So what could be preventing Anderson from receiving interest in free agency?
Again, Anderson appears to be seeking a deal that pays him the free agent excess of $10 million annually. In all likeliness, teams likely aren't willing to make Anderson one of the highest-paid receivers in the NFL.
Additionally, the amount of talented wide receivers in this year's draft class is well-documented. Therefore, teams would rather draft someone for cheap than pay Anderson $10 million a year or more.
Even in a league that is pass-oriented, Robby Anderson and the other wide receivers haven't gotten much attention in the NFL's free agency. As a result, it becomes more and more likely that Anderson finds himself back with the Jets in 2020.
