Carolina Panthers trade offer No. 2

Another avenue the Carolina Panthers could go down in this hypothetical scenario is giving the Atlanta Falcons another prominent weapon that could fill the void left by Julio Jones, whose situation is clearly past the point of no return.

There has been plenty of speculation surrounding the future of Robby Anderson in recent days. The wide receiver was a no-show at voluntary OTAs and Charlie Campbell of WalterFootball.com reported that the Panthers were shopping the player during the 2021 NFL Draft after they picked Terrace Marshall Jr. at No. 59 overall.

Anderson is coming off the best season of his career after freeing himself from the New York Jets, going over 1,000 yards for the first time, and forming a tremendous partnership with D.J. Moore.

Carolina could have a problem on their hands where Anderson is concerned next year.

He is heading into the final season of his deal and another strong campaign of production could price him out of a longer stay considering the Panthers also need to extend Moore, Taylor Moton, and perhaps cornerback Donte Jackson in the not-too-distant future.

Offering Anderson and a second-round pick in 2023 for Jones might not be enough, in all honesty. But the chances of Carolina landing the future Pro Football Hall of Famer are remote even if they wanted to.

There’s no harm in trying, right?
