Frankie Luvu

Panthers Sign LB Frankie Luvu, Re-Sign OL John Miller

The Panthers added players on both sides of the ball today. The team first announced the signing of linebacker Frankie Luvu, and they later announced that they’ve re-signed offensive lineman John Miller.

Luvu, a former undrafted free agent out of Washington State, spent the first three seasons of his career with the Jets organization, appearing in 40 total games. The 24-year-old showed signs of being a solid pass rusher throughout his stint with New York, collecting six sacks and 16 QB hits. He also finished the 2020 campaign with a career-high 25 tackles.

Miller is rejoining the Panthers on a one-year deal. The former third-rounder spent the first four seasons of his career with the Bills, starting each of his 47 appearances. He had a brief stop in Cincinnati during the 2019 campaign before joining Carolina last offseason. He proceeded to start 14 games for the Panthers in 2020 at right guard.

The Panthers have been busy adding to their offensive line this offseason. After franchising left tackle Taylor Moton, the team added a pair of free agents in Cam Erving and Pat Elflein.

Jets To Activate TE Chris Herndon

Chris Herndon may be in line to finally make his 2019 debut. The Jets activated the tight end Monday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News tweets. The team waived linebacker Frankie Luvu.

Suspended for four games to start the season, Herndon experienced hamstring discomfort last week. That led to the Jets keeping him off their active roster. Now that Herndon is back on their 53-man squad, he stands to soon reclaim his starting tight end post.

Although it’s not a lock Herndon makes his sophomore-season debut next week, due to the uncertainty surrounding his injury, Adam Gase hopes he will practice in the lead-up to the Jets’ rematch with the Patriots. Herndon’s roster exemption expired today. The Jets and Patriots have the New Jersey leg of their season series on tap for next Monday. The home team is a 9.5-point underdog.

Herndon caught 39 passes for 502 yards and four touchdowns as a rookie, doing so despite being a fourth-round pick. That yardage total was third-most in Jets history for a rookie tight end, trailing Pete Lammons (1966) and Dustin Keller (2008).

Jets Tender Robby Anderson

The Jets announced that they have applied the second-round tender to wide receiver Robby Anderson. The one-year tender will pay Anderson $3.095MM for the upcoming season. 

As a restricted free agent, Anderson can negotiate with any club through April 19. If he signs an offer sheet with a new club, the Jets could match the offer to keep him. If the Jets do not match such an offer, they will receive a second-round draft choice. While Anderson has talent, it seems unlikely that a team will offer him substantial money and forfeit a valuable second-round pick in order to add him.

Anderson, 26 in May, made some noise in 2017 with 63 catches for 941 yards and seven touchdowns. He had a quieter year in 2018, even as his off-the-field antics made noise in the New York tabloids. He finished out last season with a 50/752/6 stat line across 14 games. With upwards of $100MM in cap room – and even more flexibility remaining – the Jets can easily afford to keep Anderson in the fold at a ~$3MM rate.

In addition to Anderson, the Jets have also retained all nine of their exclusive-rights free agents:
