The Carolina Panthers are making moves today.

Signed by the Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2016, Anderson has spent all four years of his career in NY. After watching Anderson agree to terms with the Panthers earlier today, NY will sign Breshad Perriman to a one-year, $6MM deal, as ESPN's Adam Schefter reports (Twitter link).

In the end, Anderson totaled 3,059 yards on 207 receptions with 20 touchdowns over 62 games with NY.

Anderson will be reunited with his college coach, Matt Rhule, who was the driving force behind luring the field-stretching pass catcher to Carolina. He had a great sophomore campaign with 941 yards on 63 receptions with seven touchdowns - a season that the Jets thought would result in him take a big leap forward to a potential No. 1 receiver.

The LA Rams rolled out their new logo on Monday after another potential logo from the team was leaked over the weekend. Steven Jackson digs the new logo, too, as does Torry Holt, who changed his Twitter profile picture to the ram head.


In 16 regular-season games in 2019, Anderson notched 52 receptions for 779 yards and five touchdowns. The release saved the team $19.1 million in cap space.

Anderson joins a young Panthers wide receiving group that includes returning starters D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel, adding more speed to an already fast group that will be quarterbacked by Teddy Bridgewater.

Shortly after news broke that the team would be cutting star QB Cam Newton from the roster, the franchise announced the signing of former Jets WR Robby Anderson.

Anderson, 26, got off to a slow start last season but found his footing in late November.
