CHARLOTTE — Robby Anderson came to Carolina and put up career-best numbers, and now he has a chance to build on them well into the future.
The Panthers agreed to terms on an two-year contract extension with the veteran wide receiver, which will keep him here through the 2023 season.
The 28-year-old Anderson had a career-high 95 catches for a career-high 1,096 yards last season. Originally an undrafted rookie from Temple (where he played for Panthers head coach Matt Rhule), Anderson spent his first four seasons with the Jets, and was entering the final year of his current contract.
Now, he has a chance to provide some stability on offense.
They now have their top three receivers under contract through the next two seasons, and possibly beyond.
The Panthers have already picked up DJ Moore’s 2022 option, and the possibility of a long-term extension with the 2018 first-rounder has already been discussed. Along with 2021 second-rounder Terrace Marshall Jr., the Panthers are deep in playmakers at the position.
Coupled with running back Christian McCaffrey (under contract through 2025), the Panthers have skill-position talent to compete with any team in the league, making quarterback Sam Darnold’s job easier.
