Underrated move by the Jets Dan Leberfeld

It was a move that didn’t get a lot of attention, but could turn into a boon to the Jets.

I’m talking about the Jets trading a seventh-round pick to the Indianapolis Colts for DE Henry Anderson.

Anderson was traded by the Colts because he doesn’t fit their new system – they are moving from a 3-4 front to a 4-3 configuration.

At 6-6, 300 pounds, Anderson is an ideal fit for the 3-4 end position. The Jets play a base 3-4 defense.

He was a third-round pick in the 2015 draft for a reason. For his size, he’s very athletic, has got a tremendous motor and is very tough.

The key is Anderson staying healthy. As a rookie, he blew out his knee, and then last year, he fractured his larynx.

If he can stay healthy, Anderson could help the Jets a great deal.
