Robby Anderson said he wasn't “genuinely happy ” with the Jets at times

Hey guys, time to leave Jets in your rearview mirror

Robby Anderson recently told the Charlotte Observer he was “losing his love for football” during his time with the Jets.

“It was days I wouldn’t even want to go to the building like I didn’t like feeling like that, there was just a lot of things,” Anderson said. “I just wasn’t genuinely happy there all the time.”

Well, perhaps there were people in the building who weren’t genuinely happy with him when he got arrested twice during his time with the team.

Perhaps former Jets coach Todd Bowles wasn’t genuinely happy with the player during a loss to Carolina in November 2017, when the receiver walked up to a network camera after a TD and asked fans at home to vote him into the Pro Bowl.

“That’s not smart football at all,” Bowles said after the game. “We don’t want selfish players on this team doing selfish things.”

Perhaps the Jets weren’t genuinely happy with him when a month before that, late in a loss to Miami, he took off his helmet and slammed it to the turf and got penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct.

So there were certainly times the Jets were losing their love for the player.

A few months ago, Seattle’s Jamal Adams also talked about his discontent while with the Jets.

IN HIS OWN WORDS WITH DEFENSIVE COORDINATOR JEFF ULBRICH - Ulbrich breaks down Jets' defensive personnel

(Marcus Maye) can do it all. I would feel comfortable with him (at free or strong safety). He’s a guy that, to me, he can play deep, he can play the half field, he can play the middle third, he can do that and you feel comfortable with it. I think he’s got range, speed and athleticism. I think he’s got ball skills and instincts to be a deep safety. But I think he’s got enough size and girth and want-to and courage to play in the box. It’ll be fun to utilize all the things that he does. He can cover tight ends; he can cover some of the wide receivers in this league.

Jets hope initiatives will increase winning edge

Aside from adding as many good players as possible to help the Jets improve, coach Robert Saleh and GM Joe Douglas are trying to turn over every stone to find extra ways to give their team a winning edge, and two examples of this were announced over the course of the offseason, with the additions of a game management coach (Matt Burke) and the installation of an Athletic Care and Performance Department.
