Pauline: Jets would consider trading Anderson if they can get 3rd rounder

Where does that leave the New York Jets?

As previously reported, I continue to hear the Jets are doing all they can to move down from the 3rd selection.  In fact one person told me the Jets are “desperate to move down,” and they feel no one available at the third slot is a player they really need.  Last week I reported that except for Nick Bosa, the Jets are not enamored with any of the pass rushers who may be available to them early in round one.

The team is in need of extra picks in the top 100, owning the third pick of the draft as well as two choices in round three, selections 68 and 93.

The Jets have already started recruiting players who may slip through the seven rounds of the draft and they can sign as undrafted free agents. 

I’m also told the Jets will consider trading receiver Robby Anderson if they are able to get solid (3rd round) compensation in return. 

Anderson, an undrafted free agent, has been terrific addition on the field for the Jets yet has caused some headaches as well. He was tendered by the team in February and is slated to become a free agent after the season.

 

I really don't understand why they would trade him. Just seems like a dumb move for a 3rd round pick. 

The only way that makes sense is if we trade down from 3, accumulate picks and snag one of the top WRs in the 1st/2nd.

The only way it makes any sense is if the team feels anderson is a bad seed and will be a negative for the QB. Otherwise makes no sense.  Trading Lee makes sense.  Maybe even Leo if they draft a DT but not Anderson and not for a 3rd.

Why the **** would they do that? Trade a know player who has a useful skill set and create another hole for an unknown. 

This is how you set up Sam for success by getting rid of his best receiver

it also would mean they like wrs in the 3rd round who they'd have to replace him with.

Just seems stupid to ship off one of our better WRs before we see what he can do in Sams 2nd year and under Gase. 

I don't want to trade him, but if they love a guy in the draft that can replace Anderson and is under contract for a longer time, I guess it's an ok move.

I think I remember reading somewhere Robbie Anderson might be at MetLife for the draft party.

The key to the offense is adding talent while also trying to maintain some level of continuity for Darnold. This would be a negative in both regards, but especially the latter.

Wait, Gase says Anderson is set to be the greatest receiver to ever play the game, but they'll trade him for a 3rd rounder?

Bc they don't want to extend him and pay him $12+ million/year. I've been saying it all off-season

Anderson is gonna have a significant impact in Gase's system & if traded will hurt Sam's development. This would be beyond stupid.

Can draft a younger cheaper version of Anderson in 3rd. Deep WR class this year.

What passes as a good WR for the Jets doesn't necessarily translate to a good WR for other teams.

It would also make sense if they have no intention of re-signing him. He’s a UFA in the offseason and they just gave Q and Crowder decent deals. Anderson is one of the lone successes in Macc’s storied career. I can’t see him shipping him off to just draft another WR. But then again, there really isn’t any semblance of a plan either.

Anderson would only have a small role in a Gase offense bc he can't play slot. Crowder & Enunwa are much more important to what Gase expects from his WR's. People want to discount Gase's entire offensive strategy with the Dolphins but they shouldn't. His offense runs through the slot.

The Jets are being smart. If a player is on the last year of his deal and he's not in their future plans they should get an asset for him before they lose him for nothing. (Anderson, Lee, Leo?)

Someone still has to run the deep routes to keep defenses honest

There are a ton of guys who can run vertical routes to keep the defense honest.

Maybe they can't trade the 3rd pick overall or don't have a deal to their liking and are trying to get another 3rd to move back into the 2nd? Doesn't really make much sense to do that but it's Macc so who knows?

We should trade all our good players for draft picks in the hopes the players we draft become good players.

Would be pretty idiotic, IMO. I like Anderson more than most but given Mac's track record of drafting WRs in the first three rounds (it's pitiful) I just don't understand why you move Anderson... I guess the answer would be you aren't committing to him next year and want to get comp for him but Darnold's development is crucial this year. Can't fathom why you'd want to remove weapons he's comfortable with.

Ugh, why take away a weapon that Sam is comfortable with?  They were really clicking at the end of the season.  🙁
