The NY Jets are in need of a wide receiver help, and there just so happens to be a familiar face available on the open market following Robbie Chosen's recent release from the Miami Dolphins.

Chosen, formerly known as Robby Anderson, Robbie Anderson, and Chosen Anderson, played with the Jets between 2016 and 2019, and he found moderate success with the team.

Jets head coach Robert Saleh was asked about a possible reunion between the two sides when speaking to reporters on Friday, and he fueled potential rumors with his response.

Saleh was complimentary of Chosen, saying that the speedy wide receiver was "worth exploring." That certainly sounds like a team that's open to signing him.

"I know Joe Douglas will always turn over every stone. I know Robbie [Chosen] can flat-out roll. He can roll. He's got a speed element, he's got a fastball, and whenever a player has a fastball, he's always worth exploring."

Should the NY Jets kick the tires on Robbie Chosen?

Chosen put together the best season of his NFL career in his first year outside of New York in 2020. The former undrafted free agent finished his first season with the Carolina Panthers with 96 catches for 1,096 yards and three touchdowns.

He hasn't been able to replicate that same success since, however. Chosen finished with just 519 yards in 17 games the following year and was traded to the Arizona Cardinals in 2022 after a falling out with the Panthers' coaching staff.

Chosen appeared in just four games for the Dolphins this season, although he made his presence felt with a 68-yard touchdown grab in Week 3. That was his only catch as a member of the Dolphins.

The Jets are hurting for wide receiver depth following the departure of Mecole Hardman. Garrett Wilson is a superstar, but the reigning Offensive Rookie of the Year is dealing with an elbow injury and could miss Sunday's game.

Allen Lazard has been a significant disappointment for the Jets this season, and the likes of Xavier Gipson, Randall Cobb, Jason Brownlee, and Irvin Charles aren't exactly high-end depth pieces.

The Jets could use some wide receiver help, and reuniting with Chosen would add an extra element of speed to a Jets offense that is desperate for playmakers.

The artist formerly known as Robby Anderson likely doesn't fix the Jets' offensive woes, but as Robert Saleh said, he's worth exploring as additional depth.
