Carolina Panthers WR Preview: Robby Anderson and Seth Roberts

The Carolina Panthers made it a point to have a great group of receivers next season. They also signed former New York Jets star Robby Anderson and undrafted free agent turned great wideout Seth Roberts.

Anderson has been one of the lone bright spots of the recent disappointing Jets teams. Like Roberts, he went undrafted. But he ended up at MetLife Stadium and finished his rookie season with 42 receptions for 587 yards and two touchdowns.

He fought his way into the league and it has payed off for him. In his second year Anderson put the league on notice and showed the world what he’s capable of.

In his best season thus far, Anderson finished 2017 with 114 receptions for 941 yards and seven touchdowns. The Jets went 5-11, but the player made his name well known.

This past off season Anderson made a great decision and chose to leave the Jets to join the great culture of the Panthers. Not only will Teddy Bridgewater have a trio of D.J. Moore, Curtis Samuel, and Anderson, but when one of them needs a break he has another sure handed receiver stepping in.

Roberts went undrafted in 2014 and was signed by the Oakland Raiders. He didn’t play at all his rookie year but he was given an opportunity his second season and did not disappoint. In five starts, he finished 2015 season with 32 receptions for 480 yards and five touchdowns.

Over his next three seasons with the Raiders, Roberts continued to improve and produce. He never became a starting receiver for them. But he was a great boost off the sideline who would come in and make big plays. Following his stint in Oakland, the receiver decided to spend last year with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens had the best offense in football last year with MVP Lamar Jackson. Roberts didn’t play a lot with all of the talented receivers on the team. But he still finished with 21 receptions for 271 yards and two touchdowns.

Roberts will be playing a similar role with the Panthers this season. He will be a very reliable receiver off the bench that will come in and make big plays when he needs to.

The Panthers have one of the best receiving cores in the league with Moore, Samuel, Anderson, and Roberts leading the way. Even though these are the best wideouts on our team, they’re not the only ones who can step up and make a contribution.
