Panthers Trade Robbie Anderson After Heated Argument

The Carolina Panthers have traded wide receiver Robbie Anderson to the Arizona Cardinals. The deal is for “undisclosed draft compensation,” according to the Cardinals, although ESPN reported it will be for a sixth-round pick in 2024 and a seventh-round pick in 2025. The trade is pending Anderson passing a physical.

The move comes a day after the Panthers lost to the Los Angeles Rams. During the second quarter, Anderson got into a heated argument with wide receivers coach Joe Dailey.


Anderson and Dailey started arguing again in the third quarter, per Sports Illustrated. Anderson was sent to the locker room by Panthers interim coach Steve Wilks. (The Panthers fired head coach Matt Rhule last week.)


Anderson met with reporters after the game. One of them asked what happened. Anderson answered: “I’m here to do all I can to help us win. It’s third down. I’m being taken out the game, you know, I don’t think I should be OK with that,” he said. “So, I made a comment: ‘It’s the money down, why am I being taken out?’ And that’s that.”

When asked why he was taken out of the game, Anderson responded: “I have no idea. But one thing I do, and I always stand on it and continue to do, is I give my all in everything that I do. I don’t play this game for money. I don’t play this game for fame. I play this game because I love the game of football. Regardless of what’s been going on the past week, I always keep my head down and keep working. All I want to do is help us win the Super Bowl. And that’s all I want to do. That’s my ultimate goal of playing this game. So I’m never going to belittle myself from that aspect, or let my character be diminished or be misunderstood.”
