Robby Anderson shows out after new Carolina Panthers deal

If all eyes were on Robby Anderson after signing his contract extension, he made sure to put on a show for the media in attendance. The wide receiver came up with a couple of noticeable catches that really caught the eye, which rounded off a strong day overall from the man of the moment.

Anderson is clearly enjoying his football. Something that wasn’t evident throughout the player’s time with the New York Jets.

The Carolina Panthers are benefitting from this and will be doing so for the foreseeable future. Anderson is beloved within the locker room, bringing a swagger and a mentality that people of all ages seem to gravitate towards.

Anderson is not the sort of guy to get complacent despite getting paid.

He is constantly striving to get better and considering the strides made in Year 1 with the Panthers last time around, there could be even more to come in 2021 providing his previous relationship with quarterback Sam Darnold comes to life once again.

The wideout is a laid-back individual. Anderson takes things one day at a time and backs himself to the hilt no matter what the situation.

But make no mistake, there is a ruthless player underneath all the bravado and there could be a huge campaign awaiting Anderson with further growth in the coming months.
