3. Robby Anderson, Jets
Howie’s got an old friend over there in the New York Jets front office. A few months ago, Howie Roseman’s No. 2, Joe Douglas packed up and left the Eagles front office for the vacancy in New York. While it was unfortunate to see Douglas go, there’s still a perk in him leaving.
As we’ve learned before, in the past, making trades is all about connections. The Eagles benefitted from Douglas’ connections while he’s here, and they can also benefit from him while he’s gone. The Jets are a lousy football team right now, and their re-build already started.
It seems like Douglas could use some draft picks over there in New York, and he could get one by dealing wide receiver, Robby Anderson. The 26-year-old wide receiver is on a one-year deal in New York and will be an unrestricted free agent in the spring.
The Jets could potentially get value for him now, and the Eagles would definitely have an interest, as he was their primary trade target last season over Golden Tate. Anderson offers precisely what the Eagles are missing without DeSean Jackson — that’s speed. It won’t hurt to call and see what the price tag is for this guy as he could help out immediately.
