Carolina Panthers Question No. 2: Can Robby Anderson break 1,000-yard mark?

The Carolina Panthers made an eye-catching move to bring in Robby Anderson during free agency. The pacey wide receiver has performed well as a member of the New York Jets during his career. And this is a real opportunity for the player to take his game to new heights.

Anderson has worked with Matt Rhule before during their time together in college at Temple. He will know exactly what is demanded by the coach. And having so many other alternatives around him is also going to enhance his chances of making an instant impression.

The former undrafted prospect has never reached the 1,000-yard milestone in his career. He came close in 2017 when he recorded 941 receiving yards. And although he comes into Carolina as the clear No. 2 option behind D.J. Moore, there is nothing to suggest he cannot achieve this feat with Teddy Bridgewater providing a more consistent presence under center.

There is plenty to like about the way Anderson can impact the Panthers’ offense. He is one of the league’s best downfield threats. And if he can work on improving areas of his game such as catching under pressure. Then it would be disappointing if the wideout didn’t reach four-figures in 2020.

The Panthers gave Anderson a two-year, $20 million contract that is fully guaranteed. And this comes with its own set of expectations going forward.
