FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – A man whose outside-the-box idea to get noticed by an NFL team has paid off.

In November, Joe Anderson made headlines after standing outside the Houston Texans facility, asking for a job.

Joe Anderson played special teams for the Chicago Bears in 2013 before suffering an injury, which led to him being cut from the team.

Anderson never received another chance from any other teams, so he decided to make himself known to the Houston Texans.

According to ESPN, the wide receiver was signed to the New York Jets’ practice squad on Tuesday.

The 27-year-old married father of two will now rejoin former Chicago teammate Brandon Marshall.

Marshall says he saw the post by Anderson last month and remembered him being “one of the hardest-working guys I’ve had the pleasure of playing with.”
