Robby Anderson has been sensational

If the early stages of padded practices have taught us anything, it is that Robby Anderson has superstar potential with the Carolina Panthers. The wide receiver joined the organization in free agency to reunite with his former college coach Matt Rhule. And he has left his mark with a level of consistency that has set him apart from most other roster members.

Anderson signed a two-year, $20 million deal with an $8 million signing bonus and $12 million guaranteed this offseason. He has played well for the New York Jets despite some inept quarterback play during his career. And there are high hopes the former Temple star can make significant strides on an offense that is loaded with playmakers.

His exceptional speed and route-running capabilities have been a real problem for the Panthers’ cornerbacks during team drills. Anderson has also displayed his outstanding ability to catch the ball under pressure prominently. And this can only mean big things for the wideout going forward.

This is going to stand him and the franchise in good stead next season. Anderson has yet to reach the 1,000-yard milestone in his five seasons as a professional. But if he can take this sort of form into a competitive environment in 2020. Then this is a goal he is more than capable of reaching.
