Robby Anderson’s off the field mishaps mow have landed him in hot water. The New York Jets do have the option to release him.

New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson‘s conduct has been detrimental to the entire organization. Obviously, it’s something for the people working at One Jets Drive to consider possibly cutting him. He was arrested twice last year in Florida, Anderson’s first arrest, which includes a trial hearing that has now been pushed back to a date when the Jets start training camp this year. The new date will be on August 6th according to an ESPN report.

Undoubtedly the new date now is making a lot of talk about him being released. On the point of, he will not be with the Jets at the start of training camp. Indeed, Jets management could possibly make the decision to can their young rising superstar and let him land with another team. However, that would not be a smart move.

Here’s the reason why Jets management should not make the choice to release Anderson. First of all, the Jets and new acting owner Christopher Johnson have made their voices heard by the public. Saying they were, in fact, standing by Anderson. In addition, Jets management has also had stated they were standing by their other player who got in trouble with the law. Dylan Donahue, who was arrested recently on his second DUI charge, will still keep his position on the team as he works on his demons.

Without a doubt, that’s exactly what Jets management must do, stand by these players. It is vital that the Jets keep their word and stand by it. Despite the fact that Anderson has made two vital mistakes, the fact is he’s still at a young age of 24.

Conversely, he is currently also the best wide receiver on the Jets. Furthermore, last year when Quincy Enunwa went down with an injury which placed Anderson as the number one wide receiver, he answered the call and had a fantastic year.

Robby was clearly motivated last season to show everyone who doubted him on if he could be a number one wide receiver. Ultimately he delivered in fine fashion, finishing the 2017 season by being the NFL’s 21st best wide receiver in the league. Impressively, finishing the season with 63 catches for 941 yards including nine touchdowns.

For that reason, it would be a mistake if the Jets released their young phenom and best wide receiver that this organization has seen in years. I have to say that Anderson is astonishingly looking like a clone of Randy Moss. Despite the fact that Anderson does have two charges he must deal with, he’s still innocent until proven guilty. The Jets would be the laughing stock of the league if they release Anderson as he would without a doubt, quickly be claimed by another team.

In conclusion, when a team says they are sticking by their players, they can’t just suddenly release them. It’s equally important to be true to your word and run your franchise the way you have stated. Now, in the event that Anderson lands in trouble for the third time, then yes cut him. However, now is not the time to cut a player as talented as Robby Anderson. Without a doubt, he is a rising superstar in this league with a tremendous upside. There is no way you can not say that he isn’t one of the best receivers in the NFL right now. The Jets must help Anderson and hope he does not stay on the crazy course that he’s been on.
