Former Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson is now a member of the Carolina Panthers, and he took time on Wednesday to call out a report that he turned down a long-term deal with the Jets.
WFAN's Boomer Esiason claimed he was told that the Jets had a four-year, $40 million offer on the table for Anderson, who ended up signing a two-year, $20 million deal with the Panthers, with $12 million guaranteed.
"False news y'all need to better jobs reporting and putting out fake news too ppl," Anderson tweeted.
Anderson totaled 3,059 yards on 207 receptions with 20 touchdowns over 62 games with New York, establishing chemistry with quarterback Sam Darnold.
But with the 26-year-old now a member of the Panthers, the Jets acted quickly on Tuesday night, inking receiver Breshad Perriman to a one-year deal in the hopes that Perriman can provide the same speed on the outside that Anderson has offered in previous seasons.
