The Carolina Panthers have a deep wide receiver room despite Curtis Samuel leaving for the Washington Football Team in free agency. Terrace Marshall Jr. is drawing some significant excitement ahead of his rookie season, with D.J. Moore and Robby Anderson set to continue their prolific tandem with Sam Darnold under center.

Carolina could have a problem in their hands moving forward with Anderson. The wideout is in the last year of his deal and will require a bumper contract with another strong campaign.

Moore also needs to be extended next year in all likelihood. If the Panthers cannot hold on to Anderson it might force them into the market for a cheaper alternative.

Someone like Jamison Crowder is an intriguing name to monitor. His time with the New York Jets might be coming to an end after this year and linking up with Darnold again in a more stable environment could be the making of him.

This is unlikely to cost anything like what it would take to keep Anderson. This would also allow the Panthers to strengthen other obvious problem areas in the process.

Crowder could benefit from a new regime in New York led by No. 2 overall selection Zach Wilson and head coach Robert Saleh. But their youth movement might also see him on the outside looking in when it’s all said and done.
