Robby Anderson signed with the Carolina Panthers. What it means.
Manish Mehta announced that Anderson signed a two-year deal for $20 million with Carolina.
Anderson will be joining his former Temple coach Matt Rhule with the Panthers.
Though Anderson didn’t want to be listed as a Temple-product last year, instead going with Valencia College. Anderson had to leave Temple due to grades, and go to Valencia, to get his grades up in order to return to the Owls.
Jets GM Joe Douglas wasn’t interested in spending big bucks on Anderson, perhaps due to the culture he’s trying to build. Anderson had some off-the-field issues with the Jets.
The 2020 draft is considered one of the best WR drafts in recent years, so the Jets could look to replace Anderson with one of their 2020 picks.
“This could be the best wide receiver draft since 2004,” said NFL.com’s Gil Brandt.
The Jets also have a receiver with world class speed in the building, Jeff Smith, who’s also a candidate to help replace Anderson’s speed in the lineup.
