New York Jets star wideout Robby Anderson is cleared of charges. Plus the green and white stay busy on the free agent market.

That’s what I thought. Don’t get me wrong, just because the charges were dropped doesn’t mean the team won’t discipline him for violating the personal conduct policy. But it seems like the Jets were going to wait for the legal process to take its course and it has.
Here’s the cold hard truth: The Jets are in no position to cut good players without just cause. This team is desperately in search of home-run hitters and despite some of his off the field transgressions, that’s what Anderson is.
Speaking of talent, the Jets continue to do work on the free agent market. What appeared to be a razor-thin depth chart at tight end has now suddenly added some necessary athleticism.
We've signed TE Bucky Hodges.

Bucky Hodges was signed on Tuesday, following the addition of Clive Walford on Monday. These aren’t All-Pro talents, but this is athleticism that this team was lacking at the position and get it on what appears to be manageable money. The Jets mean business.
But wait… there’s more! The Jets also added a key cog on the offensive line.

Now the Jets have versatility with Travis Swanson and Spencer Long. Both are listed as centers but have guard flexibility as well. It seems like the Jets might actually know what they’re doing after all.
Now for a correction/update that may actually excite Jets fans across the country.
Per source, Josh Allen is NOT visiting the #Jets this week, as has been reported. Allen did however, work out for the Jets in Wyoming yesterday, but again — just to be clear — he is not actually headed east to visit with the team this week.

Jets fans be like…
Although really, how much stock can you put into a private workout at the team’s facilities? The Jets decided not to bring in Sam Darnold for a similar workout for example, so who knows.
But it does mean that they’re potentially looking in other directions. Which is good—very good.
