It’s more than fine to label New York Jets wide receiver Breshad Perriman as “more talented” than Robby Anderson, but he can’t be trusted.

So… the plan continues. The Joe Douglas way of attacking free agency resembles the stubborn path. Never does he relent after drawing a line in the sand. After all, if there was a golden opportunity to do so, it would have happened on Tuesday.

Robby Anderson didn’t quite snag that $15 million per season salary he was after. In the end, the Teaneck, NJ native signed a two-year, $20 million deal that’ll see him earn $12 million in the first year. With only Jamison Crowder representing anything of note on the depth chart at the position, this was Douglas’s chance to reluctantly agree to move past his initial vision.

No dice. The Jets wouldn’t match and Anderson now reunites with collegiate coach Matt Rhule in Carolina with the Panthers. After a predictably frenzied state that had New York Jets fans screaming “wide receiver is a must at No. 11,” Douglas quickly responded by signing Breshad Perriman to a one-year, $8 million deal ($6 guaranteed).

As usual, upon first glance, it looks as though Douglas upgraded in talent at a cheaper cost. Perriman, a speedster himself, can do things Anderson couldn’t dream of pulling off on an NFL field. Yes, it’s OK to label Perriman as the “more talented” wideout. Just do not, for one moment, count on him for more production than the now-traveling Sun God.

Robby was dedicated to his craft..BP a first round bust, on his fourth team. Hope that Arians and Mike Evans helped him figure it out. Great opportunity here with a QB that can get him the ball.


I like the signing. No way I would go into the season without a Plan B given his history. But if he’s anything like the guy who emerged at the end of last year we just signed a WR1 talent for $6 million in gteed money
