Former New York Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson signs a two-year, $20 million deal with Matt Rhule and the Carolina Panthers.

Robby Anderson can now add “former” to kick off his New York Jets introduction.

The former Jets wide receiver is now a Carolina Panthers employee. On Tuesday, according to various sources, including Brian Costello of the New York Post, Anderson signed a two-year, $20 million deal that will pay him $12 million in the first season.

Not much had buzzed around Anderson’s name this offseason after speculation put his per-season price at a $15 million ceiling. Obviously, he didn’t come close to that and Joe Douglas not hopping on a $10 million per campaign price tag is a surprise to some folks.

Anderson, 26, will not be reunited with head coach Matt Rhule, whom he played for during his collegiate days at Temple. Anderson finishes his Jets career (or first Jets stint shall he ever return) with 3,059 yards and 20 touchdowns on 207 total receptions over four seasons.

Rhule knows how to use speed, Robby will flourish. Gase had a limited role for vertical receivers in his offense.
