  Panthers | QB signing lured Robby Anderson     Fri Apr 3, 01:35 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Robby Anderson said Friday, April 3, that the Panthers' signing of QB Teddy Bridgewater, a close friend, was the 'icing on the cake' that convinced him to sign with Carolina.

Footballguys view: Anderson also worked under new Panthers head coach Matt Rhule when he was in college at Temple. He'll be the No.1 receiver for the Panthers and has the speed to take the top off the defense.

  Panthers | Carolina officially adds Robby Anderson    Wed Apr 1, 06:11 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Robby Anderson (Panthers) officially signed with the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, April 1. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Anderson worked in college at Temple under new Panthers head coach (and former Temple/Baylor head coach) Matt Rhule. He will be the primary deep threat for the Panthers offense, and Anderson should be a favorite target of new Panthers starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. He's got WR2 upside for Fantasy GMs in 2020.

  Panthers | Curtis Samuel not expected to be moved    Mon Mar 30, 04:07 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is not on the trade block and likely will not be moved this offseason, according to The Athletic's Joseph Person.

Footballguys view: There was some speculation that Samuel could be on the move via trade. With the addition of Robby Anderson in free agency, the Panthers seem to have a new No.1 receiver. We think Samuel could be a fine fit with new starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater. Samuel is super quick and dangerous after the catch on short passes.

  Panthers | Curtis Samuel a trade candidate?    Sat Mar 28, 01:23 PM

Carolina Panthers WR Curtis Samuel is a potential candidate to be traded, according to a list put out by Spotrac.com.

Footballguys view: The Panthers have added Robby Anderson and Seth Roberts to the mix at the wide receiver position. Anderson should be the top target on offense not named Christian McCaffrey. That makes Samuel a player who the team could move on from. A former second-round pick, Samuel is dangerous after the catch and could draw some interest if he was on the trade block.

  Panthers | Seth Roberts terms    Thu Mar 26, 08:07 AM

Updating previous reports, Carolina Panthers WR Seth Roberts received a one-year, $3.75 million deal.

Footballguys view: Roberts is an interesting add by the Panthers, especially after they already got Robby Anderson earlier in free agency. He's a speed guy, like Anderson, but Roberts is going to be working for a spot on the end of the depth chart.

  Panthers | Teddy Bridgewater officially with Carolina    Wed Mar 25, 07:50 PM

Free-agent QB Teddy Bridgewater (Saints) officially signed with the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, March 25. Official terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater is now the starter for the Panthers under new head coach Matt Rhule. He's got a ton of weapons around him, starting with RB Christian McCaffrey and the Panthers went out and got WR Robby Anderson in free agency. Bridgewater is smart and accurate, and we're excited to see him start for his new team. Fantasy GMs should look at Bridgewater as a QB2 in 2020.

  Panthers | DeAndrew White returning    Wed Mar 25, 06:47 PM

Free-agent WR DeAndrew White (Panthers) signed a one-year contract with the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, March 25. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Undrafted out of Alabama in 2015, White has bounced around to a few different teams. He was with the Panthers in 2018 and 2019 on their practice squad and for a handful of games on the active roster. White's spot on the 53-man roster is no guarantee.

Free-agent WR Robby Anderson (Jets) is signing a two-year deal worth $20 million with the Carolina Panthers Tuesday, March 24, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Panthers add more speed to the WR position with this move. Anderson was on the open market a bit longer than we thought he would be. We'll see how he meshes with new Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater. Anderson will earn $12 million in the first year of the deal.

  Panthers | Cam Newton officially released    Tue Mar 24, 03:25 PM

Updating a previous report, Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton was released Tuesday, March 24, costing the team only $2 million in dead money agianst the 2020 salary cap.

Footballguys view: Newton was the No.1 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft and led the Panthers to one Super Bowl appearance (Super Bowl 50) where they fell short of a world championship. He has not been the same player over the last two years as he's battled foot and shoulder injuries. If healthy, Newton can still be a quality starter in the NFL.

  Panthers | Kyle Allen traded    Mon Mar 23, 02:42 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Kyle Allen was traded to the Washington Redskins Monday, March 23, in exchange for a fifth-round draft choice, according to a source.

Footballguys view: The Panthers are moving forward with Teddy Bridgewater as their starter in 2020. They also signed P.J. Walker from the XFL on Monday, so moving on from Allen was a no-brainer move.

  Panthers | Pharoh Cooper contract update    Sun Mar 22, 02:32 PM

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Pharoh Cooper (Cardinals) agreed to terms on a one-year contract with the Carolina Panthers worth $1.21 million.

Footballguys view: Cooper is mostly a return man but he did get the most targets and catches of his career last season with the Cardinals. Working as a backup, Cooper caught 25 passes for 243 yards and one touchdown. Cooper will be a No.4 receiver for the Panthers in 2020.

Free-agent WR Seth Roberts (Ravens) agreed to terms with the Carolina Panthers Wednesday, March 18, according to a source. Terms of the contract were not disclosed.

Footballguys view: Roberts is a speed guy who can stretch the field. It's interesting to note with Teddy Bridgewater (not known for his strong arm) at quarterback but we'll see if Roberts can actually make the 53-man roster.

  Panthers | Cam Newton a possibility for Washington?    Tue Mar 17, 10:30 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton was given permission to seek a trade by the team earlier in the day on Tuesday, March 17, and ESPN's Josina Anderson is reporting that the Washington Redskins are a potential destination for him. However, talks did not rise to the level of 'definitive interest' and are more in a 'wait-and-see mode' at the moment.

Footballguys view: We could see that happening as Ron Rivera, former Panthers coach, is now the top man in Washington. They have been rather lukewarm on 2019 first-round pick Dwayne Haskins and could bring in Newton to be the starter.

Footballguys view: New Panthers OC Joe Brady worked with Bridgewater when they were both with the Saints. Bridgewater is smart and accurate and should be able to make the most of the weapons around him.

  Panthers | Cam Newton able to seek trade    Tue Mar 17, 11:56 AM

Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton has been given permission to seek a trade.

Footballguys view: Newton made it clear on social networking that this was not his decision. Things were headed this way and a trade was speculated by most around the NFL. Now, things are official and we'll see teams move into position when considering the veteran quarterback. Newton is coming back from a Lisfranc injury, so getting him to pass a physical when team facilities are closed around the league may be a bit complicated.
