Jets WR Robby Anderson is only in the midst of his second NFL season, but he already has lofty goals for what he hopes is a memorable NFL career.
In an interview with Steve Serby of the New York Post, the 24-year-old Anderson said his goals are to "win a Super Bowl, go to the Pro Bowl, be All-Pro, go to the Hall of Fame." Furthermore, he says he wants to become one of the best wideouts and the highest paid.
In the wide-ranging interview, Anderson explained how he overcame adversity growing up. Some of his friends wound up in prison, but he said his mother made him look at the bigger picture.
"She did everything basically on her own, worked two, three jobs, never really complained," he said. "Did her best for me. Was always supportive. Always told me the truth. Always had my back, right or wrong."
When he was younger, Anderson said he was skinny but overcame it with his talent on the field.
"Kind of for the most part. I've always been skinny, so ever since like Little League and stuff, people used to always kind of like down talk me 'cause I was like skinnier, but I was always good. You know how it is growing up when you're good at something, it's a lot of people, they kind of try and throw stones."
Anderson caught two touchdowns in his rookie campaign and has already hauled twice as many so far this season. Anderson has 31 catches for 483 yards and four tochdowns in nine games for the Jets this season.
