Robbie Anderson joined the Carolina Panthers in 2020 after leaving the New York Jets; the wide receiver achieved record-breaking career hauls and yards last season; Anderson’s New Deal Includes $ 20.5 Million Guaranteed Cash
According to NFL Network and ESPN, Carolina Panthers and wide receiver Robbie Anderson have agreed on a two-year extension worth $ 29.5 million (£ 21.5 million).
Anderson caught 95 catches at 1,096 yards and landed three times last season, his first time at Charlotte. Both were career records.
The former unused free agent from Temple has played 302 career moves, 4,155 yards and 23 TDs in five seasons with the New York Jets (2016-19) and the Panthers.
Anderson joined the Panthers from the Jets last season on a two-year $ 20m (£ 14.6m) contract to reunite with head coach Matt Roulet, under whom he played at Temple.
Anderson will re-team this season with Sam Darnold, his Jets quarterback who was traded for the Panthers this season.

Darnold replaced Teddy Bridgewater, who spent one season in North Carolina before being transferred to the Denver Broncos ahead of this year’s draft.
The Anderson expansion further enhances the Panthers’ capabilities with a wide receiver. They previously selected DJ Moore’s 2022 option and discussed a long-term renewal with the 2018 pioneer, and also selected Marshall Jr.’s Terrace in the second round of this year.
The Panthers kick off their 2021 season against Anderson and Darnold’s old Jets team on September 12.
