4 critical observations from the Panthers loss at LA Rams in Week 6
By Luke Gray
Robbie Anderson has played his last Carolina Panthers game
Well, it’s certainly never boring when it comes to Robbie Anderson. On Sunday we saw another installment of the saga involving the wide receiver and the Carolina Panthers.
During the first half, Anderson was pictured getting in the face of wide receivers coach Joe Dailey with his fist clenched before being separated. Later in the game, the Temple product and his coach exchanged words and Steve Wilks had seen enough, sending him to the locker room.
It was already widely speculated that Anderson was a prime target to be traded in the wake of Matt Rhule’s dismissal. This latest incident was the final nail in the player’s coffin.
Anderson didn’t seem overly thrilled at the firing of Rhule, who was his college coach at Temple. From the outside looking in, it’s the perfect time for Carolina to part ways.
The Panthers extended Anderson after a 1,000-receiving-yard season in 2020. Since then we’ve seen a stark regression and the drama that seems to follow the player makes him expendable.
With a trade to the Arizona Cardinals confirmed, Anderson probably cannot wait to get away from this ungodly mess unfolding in Carolina. As for the Panthers, they can now cross a line under this situation while taking on a significant amount of dead-cap money in the process.
