Anderson broke through with the Jets last season, notching his best season in the NFL. The Defensive Lineman finished with seven sacks on the season.
More evidence for Henry Anderson before Monday.
Jets ran a 3-4 but they aligned him at 3T enough. Smart coaches use talent.
Here’s a tidbit (SIS):
He was double-teamed on 60% of his 367 pass rushes, which ranked 11th among DL and OLB w at least 300 rushes. Yet still produced. https://t.co/E4iZSMJPcw

The Jets reportedly love everything about Anderson, including his work ethic and locker room presence. However, there were concerns about how he would fit if new DC Gregg Williams chose to shift to a 4-3 defense, where Anderson struggled in Indianapolis. Once the Jets said they were sticking with a 3-4, it was almost a no-brainer to bring Anderson back.
