Robby Anderson – Carolina Panthers WR

This one is a bit more tricky.

The Carolina Panthers got far more than they bargained for with Robby Anderson. He came into the organization with a reputation for being a deep threat and not much else, only to transform these perceptions almost from the outset during a fantastic first season with the franchise.

Linking up with Matt Rhule once again was the best decision Anderson’s ever made. The former Temple star made a significant impact all over the field, with his ability to get open quickly from the slot something we didn’t see from the player on the New York Jets.

Hopes are high that Anderson can continue this trend in 2021. Although what comes next after that is relatively uncertain.

Anderson is in the final season of his two-year, $20 million deal he penned in free agency last year. If he puts up similar numbers and gets his touchdowns up, then the wideout is going to want far more than that when his representatives head to the bargaining table.

The Panthers need to pay D.J. Moore and have top young receivers in Terrace Marshall Jr. and Shi Smith who could become productive starters in the not-too-distant future. If Anderson prices him out of an extended stay, expect Carolina to let him test the market.
