Reunited and it feels so good! Matt Rhule coached Robby Anderson at Temple. Now he’s going to get to coach him again in Carolina. Anderson has signed a two-year deal worth $20 million. Anderson clearly didn’t get the market he wanted from the Jets and is now heading south to reunite with his college head coach.

Adam Schefter of ESPN was the first to report the news:

This is a smart move by the Panthers. Robby Anderson really rounds out this receiving core. DJ Moore, Curtis Samuel, and now Anderson. It’s not a bad set of weapons for Teddy Bridgewater to go out there and ball out. Anderson does one thing really well. Stretch the field and go get the deep ball. Anderson averaged 15 yards per reception in 2019 with the Jets.

This contract also doesn’t seem onerous either. Two year contract for $20 million? Not too shabby. The deep wide receiver draft probably had something to do with it. I think this is good value for Carolina and everybody needs a deep threat.

The Temple connections run deep in Carolina now. The Panthers just yesterday also signed PJ Walker from the XFL. Walker played quarterback for Rhule at Temple and really carved up the XFL. After releasing Cam Newton and trading Kyle Allen, Walker is the Panthers backup. Rhule adds a second Temple guy with the addition of Anderson.

Pray for Sam Darnold. Another Jet leaves and no one is coming to replace him. Anderson was the number one receiver in New York. Now it’s Jamison Crowder. Poor, Sam. It should be a crime what they are doing to him.
