As the New York Jets prepare for the season ahead, wide receiver Robby Anderson must stay on the right path since his potential is through the roof.
The New York Jets have a very talented player in wide receiver Robby Anderson. However, talent alone isn’t enough to stay on a team that needs him, as he needs to stop getting into trouble off the field.
Anderson, who is 25 years old, has been no stranger to legal issues. Between a few arrests and legal situations that have arisen, the Jets need to see a change in Anderson’s off the field behavior.
Between reckless driving and other things, Anderson needs to come to a realization that this is only hurting the Jets. He has emerged as a dangerous receiving option with the potential to blossom even further this upcoming season.

The Jets really need him to focus on one thing and one thing only. Focusing on football and leaving the past behind so everyone can move on.
Anderson may not have the mentality to succeed in New York if he does not get it right after this. Fans are growing concerned with the behavior we see from him. Skill can only get you so far as Anderson is likely on thin ice if he doesn’t shape up and keep the distractions behind him.
Teams not only look for talent, they go for players who will give their organization a good look. The number of arrests is concerning without a doubt. It’s time that he learns from his mistakes and focuses on making better choices off the field.
The Jets need to look at the bigger picture and see if Anderson is really a good fit for a team that may need his athleticism, but not need his behavior. Hopefully, he sticks to what he’s been saying since organized team activities in that he’s a changed person and wants to push the Jets towards success.
All in all, Anderson needs to shift his focus to football and again, just that. The rebuild that the leadership regime has been working on over the past few years is almost coming to an end where they’ll have enough pieces to be a playoff contender. Hopefully, Anderson understands that he could be a big part of that since rookie quarterback Sam Darnold is being developed for a bright future.
Darnold to Anderson could be a thing of beauty if everything falls into place. It’s all on Anderson since the Jets never gave up on him even when he was in the lowest of lows which likely means it got through to him to stay on the right path from here on out.
The “I’m good enough to do what I please” mentality is getting him and the Jets nowhere, and it’s frustrating to see him constantly in legal trouble. Although he is quite a force to be reckoned with on the field, he has been going down a dangerous path off it. Now is the time to change and prove Anderson is still worth keeping around for the long haul.
