Robby Anderson Has A Deal With The Panthers

The Carolina Panthers agreed to a two-year, $20 million deal with former New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson on Tuesday. Anderson will receive $12 million in the first year of the deal and will be a free agent again at 29 years old. He'll be reuniting with his old college coach Matt Rhule, who is the Panthers head coach. The Jets were interested in bringing Anderson back as their No. 1 wideout, but he'll head to Carolina instead, where he'll join D.J. Moore and Curtis Samuel in three-wide sets. It's another receiving weapon for new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, who is taking over for Cam Newton. Anderson's arrival is bad news for both Moore and Samuel, and Anderson may still struggle to post his first 1,000-yard of his career. The 26-year-old had 52 catches for 779 yards (15.0 yards per catch) and five touchdowns in 2019. He'll be a WR4/5 target with upside for more if he becomes a focal point in Carolina's offense.

Panthers To Release Cam Newton

The Carolina Panthers are expected to release quarterback Cam Newton as soon as Tuesday, according to sources. The writing was on the wall when the Panthers signed Teddy Bridgewater to be their starting signal-caller last week. Carolina tried to send Newton to either the Bears or Chargers in a trade, but they have gone in other directions and no starting jobs are really available around the league. The Panthers will have just $2 million in dead money with his release. Coming off a season where he played just two games due to a foot issue and with the NFL's doctors shutting down physicals due to the coronavirus, it may be a while before he lands on his feet with another team, and it remains to be seen if he'll have a shot at a starting job. The Chargers and Patriots might be his best options. The big question is whether Newton can bounce back from shoulder and foot injuries the last two years. Fantasy owners probably won't want to bet on it in 2020, depending on where he winds up.

Panthers Give Tahir Whitehead A One-Year Deal

The Carolina Panthers agreed to a one-year, $2.5 million deal with linebacker Tahir Whitehead on Monday, according to a source. The deal contains $1.45 million in guarantees. Whitehead spent the last two seasons with the Raiders, and he had 108 tackles (79 solo), six tackles for loss, one QB hit and one pass defensed in a full 16 games. The soon-to-be 30-year-old has played a full season in each of the last three years and has over 100 combined tackles in each of the last four years with Oakland and Detroit. He's not the best coverage linebacker in the passing game, but he should help Carolina improve on their run defense, which was one of the worst in the league in 2019.

P.J. Walker Expected To Sign With Panthers

The Carolina Panthers are expected to sign former XFL quarterback P.J. Walker, according to a source. Walker was one of the stars of the short-lived XFL league while playing for the Houston Roughnecks. He threw for 1,338 yards, 15 touchdowns and only four interceptions in the XFL. The 6-foot QB out of Temple will serve as depth behind Teddy Bridgewater and will compete for a backup job with Kyle Allen and Will Grier in 2020. You can ignore Walker in fantasy leagues, however.

Seth DeValve Agrees With Panthers

The Carolina Panthers agreed to an undisclosed deal with tight end Seth DeValve on Thursday, according to his agent, Chris Cabott. DeValve spent the 2019 season with the Jaguars, where he caught 12 of his 18 targets for 140 yards and no touchdowns in 12 games. He spent the previous three seasons with the Browns, who took him as a fourth-round selection in 2016. The 27-year-old has a career high of 33 catches for 395 yards and a score back in 2017 and should give Carolina some depth behind starter Ian Thomas in 2020. Unless Thomas misses time with an injury, DeValve will likely reside on the waiver wire in most fantasy leagues.
