Best offseason moves for Carolina Panthers: Signing Robby Anderson

The Carolina Panthers now have another potentially prolific wide receiver alongside D.J. Moore. The organization made the move to bring in Robby Anderson from the New York Jets on a two-year, $20 million deal that included an $8 million signing bonus and $12 million guaranteed.

Anderson will link up once again with his college coach Matt Rhule, who will be hoping his partnership with Moore can become one of the best tandems in the NFL. Although the wideout has yet to reach the 1,000-yard milestone during his career. There is definite potential for Anderson to achieve this with the weapons that the Panthers have at their disposal.

This was a shrewd move from a franchise that didn’t have much to work with financially in free agency. They had to be prudent with their resources. And it became evident early on that Anderson was a player of substantial interest.

The Panthers deserve credit for moving quickly to get the deal done. This has allowed Anderson to pick up what is expected, at least virtually, before trying to make an instant impact once the team returns to camp.

It would be a huge surprise if Anderson did not have a big say in the fortunes of the Panthers’ offense. The player represents a tremendous threat down the field and will get more one-on-one looks with so many more elements for opposing defenses to concern themselves with.
