Wide receiver Robby Anderson, who can become a restricted free agent next week, has officially been tendered by the Jets with a second-round qualifying offer.
As a restricted free agent, Anderson could negotiate with any club through April 19. If he were to sign an offer sheet with a new club, the Jets could match the offer and retain him because their qualifying offer entitles them to a "right of first refusal" on any offer sheet he would sign.
If the Jets did not match any offer, they would receive a second-round draft choice based on their qualifying offer. If an offer sheet is not executed by the April 19 deadline, Anderson's negotiating rights would revert exclusively to the Jets.
The Jets have also tendered all nine of their exclusive-rights free agents: QB Davis Webb, WR Deontay Burnett, RB De'Angelo Henderson, OL Ben Braden, DL Bronson Kaufusi, LBs Frankie Luvu and Anthony Wint, CB Jeremy Clark and S Doug Middleton.
