Robby to the Panthers

Yup. I'd expect JD to move on a vet WR soon, and we could well see a WR at 11 too. Those stories about the Jets being intrigued with Ruggs are interesting. You could potentially replace Robby's speed with someone even faster, who is also a more complete WR (compared to Robby as a rookie).

Agreed

And hell, you could make the argument that Ruggs is already a more complete WR over present day Robby.

I wouldn’t have minded bringing Robby back at $10 million a year, but I’m not distraught over letting him go. Clearly Douglas didn’t put a high value on a guy who is built like a twig, has had off the field issues in the past and hasn’t developed much of a route tree.

I’m actually kind of relieved. Robby has acted like a clown in the past while making an UDFA’s salary. Giving him 8 figures a year has the potential to be a recipe for disaster.

That’s really bad. We now have not a single weapon on the entire team.   Are we all still in love the JD?

Kinda bummed not gonna lie 

I was inspired to write a poem: Thank you Robbie for some decent play But now that you’ve gone all I can say  Is that you were sorta scrawny  SAR I

We really should have resigned him for that money. Losing RA really paints us into a corner to trade for Trent William's and draft WR rounds 1 and 2. The team is completely barren at WR 1 and 2. Retaining Robby would have given us flexibility to go OT, then pair him with a WR in round 2.

Ah yes, you're stuck on that.  Guess none of the other moves happened and you're going to tunnel vision on one.  

We rebuilt the middle, still need a left and right tackle unless you seriously plan on telling me that Edoga is a quality starter?

Guys.... It's Robby Anderson.... I liked him ... Home grown etc. But he's not the weapon some think he is.

If this causes us to focus more heavily on WR and thus Double dip on wideouts in our first 3-4 picks I'm good with it. 

OL at 11 followed by two receivers or a receiver at 11 followed by OL and receiver.

Overrating him a bit dude

Yup.  I'm ok with him walking for that price.  Best of luck to Robby.  We can get Perriman for a fraction of the price and draft 1-2 studs in a loaded draft.

Agreed!!!

The Jets have the worst skill position players in the NFL outside of Bell and it is not even close!!!

If JD doesn't turn this around quickly, then we are wasting Sam Darnold.....

Crowders a very good slot

Herndon has top 10 TE potentil

 Bell Is one of the best receiving backs

we need 2 outside receivers. Draft is to come. Trades could happen. I desperately wanted to keep Robby but I’ll wait to see what the opening  day roster looks like

I like not overpaying.

I don’t like the lack of weapons Sam has.

If we’re going to be stingy about 1 or 2 million, Douglas better have a back up plan...something like signing Perriman and trading for another receiver.

Same folks praising the move today will be saying during the season that Darnold sucks because he can't complete passes to folks who can't get sufficient separation... :)

Joe Caporoso   @JCaporoso · 26m   Over the last 4 years, Robby Anderson had 207 receptions, 3059 yards and 20 TDs for the #Jets and played in 46 of their past 48 games. Current WR depth chart for NYJ - Jamison Crowder - Quincy Enunwa - Josh Bellamy - Braxton Berrios - Vyncint Smith - Josh Doctson

What a sad sack.That guy makes Eeyore look like Richard Simmons.

Breshad Perriman seems to be the next guy to come off the board? Demarcus Robinson? 

I watched a chunk of Tampa games late in the year.  If THAT's the real Perriman vs. the Baltimore JAG Perriman, IMO he may even be better than Robby.  Just about as fast on go routes and he actually fought for the ball to help out Winston.  Assume he needs coaching on route precision but no worse than Robby..

You know I felt the same way at first. His first two years, I loved Robbie, because he was trying to prove himself. I also realize that he isn’t the sharpest knife in the drawer. However he has had a couple of instances where he had shown low character outside of football, and I just watch for fun the last Jets bills game last season and what I noticed about Robbie is whenever he’s not getting the ball he pouts like a little child. He doesn’t fight for the ball and fight for the team and less he’s the target. That’s probably why he disappears for games at a time. Don’t get me wrong he’s very talented and I respect him and I’m very happy for him, But the reason why I jumped on this bandwagon back in 1999 when I move to New York is because the Jets are all about Hardwork grit and real people! You can be a superstar and a D but as long as you do your effing job! And if you’re not getting the ball in the game and you decide to pout then you’re not part of this team.

And as trash as you think he is, he put up very similar numbers to Robby as a a number 3 option and can be had for half of what Robby just got.

I think the most interesting thing is how low douglas valued Anderson in the end.

Nice deal for a former UDFA who proved he belong . Congrats Robbie Anderson you did good kid . Continued success and best wishes. That’s not rain you hear but Sam Darnold crying. Oh and quite a few Jets fans also .

P. S should you play against us, wear air plugs and don’t come across the middle

Again he probably wanted more money to stay.  I like Robby but other than his deep threat he isn’t worth it.  He is replaceable

50 rec 750 yards per year and there are people acting like the Jets just lost Michael Thomas. It's ridiculous

Guys, most likely Robbie didn't even give us a chance to match. Many times it becomes an ego thing. If the current team doesn't overpay or give them a deal they think they're worth,  they might take equal or a bit less money to go elsewhere. Ego gets involved and FAs leave.

I stand by my statement I mentioned Bell and Crowder is good but nothing special and saying a guy (Herndon) has potential means he hasn't done it yet.

None of what you post means that the Jets don't have abysmal skill position players.  For the Record I am not writing off the season or JD, I am just saying it is what it is and it's JDs job to improve the situation.

Yeah I agree, let’s see how the Jets respond to this, you know Douglas has a back up to every back up plan, and honestly he probably knew this was going to happen.

Good point about continuity....We are not going to fix everything this season and I trust that JD is doing a great job of slowly rebuilding this team. We may not address the wide receiver position at all this season other than within the draft. I’m giving JD three years to rebuild this team… Then I’ll start to panic

We were saying that last year when Robby was playing
