Free-agent wide receiver Robby Anderson says he "truly" wants to be back with the New York Jets in 2020, the team he's spent the first four years of his NFL career with.

"I think they definitely want me back," Anderson said on ESPN's "NFL Live." "I truly do want to be back with the Jets. I love Sam (Darnold), I love my teammates, Jamal (Adams) and all those guys. I feel like there's unfinished business there that I've been trying to get done since I got there. I would hope to finish out the mission, all in all, but it's a business."

He finished the year with 779 receiving yards on 52 receptions with five touchdowns. Anderson's yards and touchdowns both ranked second on the team in 2019. The Jets signed him as an undrafted free agent back in 2016.

During Week 6 against the Dallas Cowboys, Anderson reeled in five catches for 125 yards, including a 92-yard touchdown as the Jets knocked off Dallas 24-22. Against the Miami Dolphins in Week 14, Anderson finished with seven catches for 116 receiving yards and a touchdown, helping lead the Jets to a 22-21 win.

Anderson figures to receive high interest in the free-agent market if he's unable to secure a long-term deal with the Jets. The New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens and Arizona Cardinals are among the wide receiver-needy teams that could possibly be interested in the 26-year old wideout's services.
