Robby Anderson

The Chargers have Keenan Allen and Mike Williams, but it’s been well documented that the team needs a true No. 3 wide receiver to help them out and be a true asset in the passing game.

The New York Jets would be silly to let this guy go, but if they do, there will be teams lining up to sign him.

Robby Anderson likely feels he’s a No.1 wide receiver and will want No.1 wide receiver money, but Telesco could make him a solid offer to come over and join the Chargers in a potentially pass-happy offense.

There are many Chargers fans who would love for the team to sign Anderson, but a more likely signing to me would be a guy like Nelson Agholor, which I’ve talked about before.

Anderson would be a fantastic get for the Chargers. He’s extremely quick on the outside and has reliable hands. On a bad Jets team, he has 207 receptions for 3,059 yards and 20 touchdowns in four seasons. He would give the Chargers a very legitimate deep threat, one that can stretch the field at any given time.

There are other wide receivers available such as Devin Funchess, Randall Cobb, Breshad Perriman and Demaryius Thomas.  But we’re talking about how to get to the Super Bowl and those guys don’t tip the scales the way Anderson or even a guy like Emmanuel Sanders would do.
