New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson has signed his second-round restricted free agent tender, worth $3.095 million.

The team announced the move Thursday night, a day after general manager Mike Maccagnan was fired and coach Adam Gase took over as acting GM while the Jets search for a replacement.

Anderson led the Jets last season with 50 receptions, 752 yards receiving and six touchdown catches.

The 26-year-old Anderson will enter this season playing for a new contract since he can be an unrestricted free agent next off-season. Since being signed in 2016 as an undrafted free agent out of Temple, Anderson has 155 catches for 2,280 yards and 15 touchdowns.
