Jets should keep Robby Anderson despite incident
By Angelina Rizzo
The New York Jets shouldn’t be quick to give up on promising young wide receiver Robby Anderson as it’s best to wait until all the facts come out before passing judgment.
At this point in time, the New York Jets shouldn’t be quick to give up on the 23-year-old wide receiver, Robby Anderson. He recently found himself in a messy situation in Miami. Is Anderson one to just give up on, just because he has messed up at a concert? I personally think Anderson’s future is quite bright if he can avoid getting into further incidents that can hurt and jeopardize his career.
Anderson is indeed a talented receiver who posted up quite promising and great stats last year. Despite his small size, he has done big things for the Jets. He totaled 42 receptions, 587 yards and two touchdowns on the season.
At the end of the day, he is young and everyone makes mistakes. Incidents like these aren’t at all good for the team or the player who are involved. Anderson, who is emerging as a receiver with a ton of potential at his position, should not be given up on, especially since not everything regarding his incident is fully understood yet.

There are also many athletes who have had severe run-ins and multiple things that have caused organizations to scratch their heads and finally say that enough is enough. I do feel that Anderson should take this seriously, it’s just not right to completely give up on a player. Especially a young and developing player who just happened to get into his first off-the-field incident.
Anderson is a huge benefit for the offense of the Jets with his speed and catching abilities, which is very well appreciated due to all the offensive struggles. Hopefully, this is just a rookie blunder that will not keep happening, giving the Jets reason to think that he isn’t a good fit.
Only time will tell, as this talented young man has a bright and promising career based on the performance and things we have learned about him so young in his playing time. The Jets should give Anderson the chance to better things for both his sake and the sake of the team.
