New York Jets free agent wide receiver Robby Anderson admits he’s dreamed of playing with quarterback Tom Brady.

While New York Jets fans are dreaming of a Vince Lombardi trophy, soon-to-be free agent Robby Anderson longs for a future Hall of Fame quarterback.

The straight-line burner admits a recent dream that placed him on the same team with another soon-to-be free agent, quarterback Tom Brady, via Rich Cimini of ESPN.

“I just had a dream last night where we were on the same team,” Anderson said Wednesday morning on ESPN’s SportsCenter. “No lie. It’s so crazy.”

The obvious next question from every rational human being would be, “Which team?”

Anderson had no idea.

“The crazy thing is, I didn’t see the team,” he said. “I didn’t see like the actual colors of the jersey, but we were literally on the same practice field at practice together.”

Anderson, 26, is New Jersey-born and bred. The 9-route blazer has tallied 3,059 yards and 20 touchdowns on 207 games over four years with the Jets. Last year, Robby tallied 779 yards and five scores on 52 receptions (16 games).

The undrafted free agent out of Temple has represented one of Mike Maccagnan’s bright spots during his tenure as general manager.

Now, many reports suggest No. 11 is about to cash in big-time on the open market. But that doesn’t change Anderson’s perceived desire to stay home.

“I truly do want to be back with the Jets,” he said. “I love Sam [Darnold]. I love my teammates, Jamal [Adams] and all those guys. I feel like there’s unfinished business there that I’ve been trying to get done since I got there. I would hope to finish out the mission, all in all, but it’s a business.”

The NFL’s legal tampering period begins Monday, March 16, 2020.
