Initial Reaction – New York Jets Lose Robby Anderson

James Kuntz with initial reaction to the New York Jets losing Robby Anderson to the Carolina Panthers

On Tuesday, March 24, wide receiver Robby Anderson signed a 2 year, $20 million contract with the Carolina Panthers. As a result, there is widespread consternation among Jets fans regarding the current state of the wide receiver group. I believe this anxiety is warranted and that the decision to allow Robby to leave was a grave mistake because, in addition to being a premier deep threat who draws attention away from his teammates, Robby Anderson is a well-rounded receiver with strong hands and an irreplaceable rapport with Sam Darnold.

New York Jets, NFL Draft 2020 – Full 7 Round Mock Draft

Mock drafts have emerged as the lifeblood of the draft season craze. Various scenarios can, in a heartbeat, not only make one feel uplifted but also discouraged. With that said, I hope this particular piece evokes the former and leaves you with an optimistic view of what’s to come.

Note: I understand most fans, including myself, covet the “Big Four,” but we need to prepare for the likelihood that they won’t be available. In this particular outline, I have the Jets trading down. While I recognize it might not be the desired option by some, it yields the Jets some extra picks and the ability to address other needs.

Initial Reaction – The New York Jets sign CB Pierre Desir

When the New York Jets cut CB Darryl Roberts, it stood to reason that GM Joe Douglas had a move in mind to add a veteran at cornerback so Gregg Williams and the defensive coaching staff didn’t have to go into the draft with Bless Austin and Arthur Maulet as the only options on the outside. Well, not even 24 hours later that move happened as the Jets signed former Colts CB Pierre Desir.

Initial Reaction – New York Jets Sign OG Greg Van Roten

The New York Jets continued their complete makeover of the offensive line by signing former Panthers offensive guard Greg Van Roten. Signing the 30 year old former Pennsylvania Quaker probably signals the end of Brian Winters’ tenure with Gang Green. The Jets will save $7M in cap space with his release. His release, coupled with Darryl Roberts’ earlier release, nets the more financial flexibility to continue adjusting their roster…
