The Jets are closing up shop today. Wide receiver Robby Anderson is set to become a free agent. The Jets still have a few months with exclusive access to negotiate a new deal with Anderson, but it sounds like the wideout is going to hit the market.
If Anderson is looking for the biggest payday possible, he is probably right. Plenty of illogically big contracts are handed out in free agency.
Whether the Jets should give Robby a new contract has been a source of much debate within the fanbase.
I think at this point we know what kind of production can be expected from him. In his first three NFL seasons, Anderson averaged 52 catches, 760 yards, and 5 touchdowns. This year he had 52 catches, 772 yards, and 5 touchdowns.
There is a price where that kind of production is a good value. Will Anderson command more than that on the open market?
