Robby Anderson, Panthers reportedly agree on $20 million deal

The Carolina Panthers and wide receiver Robby Anderson, formerly of the New York Jets, have agreed on a 2-year, $20 million contract, per multiple reports.

What It Means:

Anderson will be reunited with new Panthers head coach Matt Rhule, whom he played under at Temple University. He figures to be the primary deep threat for fellow free-agent signing Teddy Bridgewater. Anderson spent the first four seasons of his career with the New York Jets after entering the league as an undrafted free agent. He averaged 42.8 yards over the first half of last season but stepped up with 54.6 yards over the final eight games. Anderson turns 27 in May.

Anderson averaged 8.5 FanDuel points per game last season. He had 52 catches for 779 yards and 5 touchdowns on 96 targets. His 8.1 yards per target was 42nd among the 80 wideouts with at least 50 targets last season.
