Carolina Panthers did not trade Robbie Anderson

It was a disappointing season overall for Robbie Anderson in 2021. Some individual errors and a lack of chemistry with quarterback Sam Darnold were the main factors behind some steep regression, which resulted in speculation surrounding his future this offseason.

Trade talks with the New England Patriots didn’t come to anything in the end and the Carolina Panthers restructured Anderson’s contract rather than remove him from the equation entirely. Something that could be a wise move with the wide receiver now extra motivated to get his career back on track.

Anderson is skipping the voluntary portion of OTAs as he did last season, opting to work out closer to home alongside his personal trainers. Whether this can have the desired effect remains to be seen, but it would be a tremendous boost for the Panthers if the former Temple star can get back to anything like his 2020 form.

Carolina still doesn’t know who will be starting at quarterback next season. Anderson will be hoping for someone better than Darnold after the pair simply didn’t hit it off in any shape or form despite playing together previously on the New York Jets.

Hopefully, for the player and the Panthers, Anderson can get things back on track. If he can’t, then there is a high chance the wideout will be traded or even released next spring.
