The Jets are set to bring back DE Henry Anderson next season, SNY's Ralph Vacchiano confirmed on Tuesday.
Anderson will return on a deal worth $25 million over three years, and that is just compensation after the season he put together for Gang Green last season. The Jets' pass rush wasn't all that good, but Anderson was tied for first on the team with a career-high seven sacks to go along with 35 combined tackles and 16 quarterback hits.
Anderson played in all 16 games last season, but only totaled three starts. He will likely remain in that depth role again this year unless he shows out at training camp, and proves to the Jets last season wasn't a fluke.
With Anderson back on board, the Jets' front seven is starting to come together a little more. The team also inked C.J. Mosley to a massive five-year, $85 million deal, however Anthony Barr had a change of heart and returned to the Vikings instead of moving to New York.
Still, there is plenty of cap space to be thrown around, even after the Jets agreed to a deal with RB Le'Veon Bell. The NFL Draft is also chock-full of young, talented pass rushers, and the Jets could be aiming to take on at No. 3 overall.
