Robby Anderson, Panthers
Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Carolina Panthers have been busy on Tuesday. On the heels of the team releasing former NFL MVP Cam Newton, Carolina has found a solid target for its new quarterback.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Carolina has signed 26-year-old former New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson to a two-year, $20 million contract. The deal will pay Anderson $12 million in 2020.

This is a big get for a Panthers squad that needs more options for new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. The 6-foot-3 Anderson is averaging 55 receptions for north of 800 yards over the past three seasons.

The big-bodied pass catcher will now team up with running back Christian McCaffrey as well as fellow receivers D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel to form an elite skill-position group for first-year head coach Matt Rhule. Those three tallied a combined 257 receptions for north of 2,800 yards a season ago.
