The New York Jets are reportedly "willing to trade" a veteran player.

According to a report from Jets insider Manish Mehta, the Jets placed wide receiver Robby Anderson on the trade block. This isn't the first time he's been on the block, after New York considered trading him last season.

The Philadelphia Eagles were reportedly interested in Anderson last season, but the Jets failed to pull the trigger.

Now, sitting at 1-5 on the season, the Jets are reportedly interested in re-opening trade discussions.

Here's more from the report:

The Jets are looking to add 2020 draft capital with an eye on quickly improving their roster. To that end, Gang Green has made it clear to teams that wide receiver Robby Anderson can be had before the Oct. 29 trade deadline for the right price, according to sources.

The Jets are also reportedly listening to offers for defensive lineman Leonard Williams as well.

Through six games, Anderson racked up 17 catches for 266 yards and one touchdown. A majority of that production came in the Jets' upset win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 6. Anderson caught five passes for 125 yards and his lone touchdown on the year.
