The Jets made an expected yet welcomed move tonight, releasing veteran DL Henry Anderson. Cutting the man affectionately known as “Goose”, frees up $8.2 million dollars in cap space and gives the team added flexibility ahead of free agency, starting on March 17. According to ‘Over The Cap’, the Jets currently have $76M to spend this offseason, the second most in the NFL.
Anderson signed an eyebrow raising 3 year/$25M deal in 2019. Unsurprisingly, the journeyman role player was unable to live up to that contract and now finds himself a FA. The Jets have ample young talent on the interior of their defensive line, with Williams, Fatukasi and Shepherd all poised for success in 2021.
Jets twitter will definitely miss Mrs Anderson and her constant name searching/lurking in the comment section!
