Joe Anderson was an undrafted receiver signed by the Chicago Bears following the 2012 draft. Having played at the college level for Louisiana Tech and Texas Southern. His longest sting came with the Bears where he moved between the active roster and the practice squad on several occasions, after a stint on IR he was waived. The Eagles picked up Anderson, and now the Jets have reportedly signed him.
"All I want is a shot to prove myself," Anderson said in a telephone interview. "I'm hungry, I'm determined and I will do whatever it takes to succeed. I just want a chance. I will never give up. I love this game."
"I'm determined to show what I can do," Anderson said. "I love football and I'm blessed by God to be able to play this game. I can do this, I know it."
Anderson has largely worked on special teams in the NFL, appearing in 9 games for the Bears. However he is yet to record a single NFL reception up to this point. He did return 5 kicks for the Bears in 2013, and has more experience returning kicks from his college days.
It's a minor move for the Jets, but if you want to check out some college highlights of Anderson, here they are:
