Panthers deal Robbie Anderson to Cardinals following dispute with coaches

The Cardinals have lost Marquise Brown due to an injury on Sunday.

Robbie Anderson will no longer playing football with the Carolina Panthers following his squabbles with coaches following Sunday’s defeat to the Los Angeles Rams.

When Anderson was kicked off of the field by his own coaches during the contest, the team took the decision to remove him from the team permanently. Carolina was traded by Anderson with the Arizona Cardinals on Monday for unspecified draft compensation.

Arizona was in desperate need of some receiver help after Marquise Brown suffered an injury during the team’s 19-9 loss against Seattle. Seattle Seahawks. Anderson along with the return to DeAndre Hopkins could help the offense get back to where they need to be.

The Score and NFL Network were the first to publish the news about the deal.

Anderson was seen having some heated discussions with coach of wide receivers Joe Dailey and interim head coach Steve Wilks as the team faced the Rams. In the second period, Anderson was told to go to the showers and the team did not see him again. In the beginning of the game Anderson was seen absent from the team.

He was not the target during the game.

Following the match, He informed the media that he was not pleased getting sacked after a third down.

“It’s third down, it’s a money down. I don’t think I should be OK with that (being taken out),” Anderson declared. “So I have made a comment about the reason I was kicked out.

“Honestly, I was confused because I have never been told get out of the game. And, you know, upset by that. Nobody that is a true competitor would be OK with that.”

Anderson stated that he stuck around to discuss the incident and to set the truth from his perspective.

“I don’t want anyone to have misconceptions. I’ve had moments of controversy where I didn’t speak up for myself,” Anderson declared.

Anderson was averaging 13 catches for 5 games of 206 yards prior to Sunday’s game. Anderson had 1,000 yards of receiving in in his debut season in Carolina.

The team was fired Matt Rhule during the week. Rhule served as Anderson’s assistant coach at Temple. The wide receiver was on 89 percent of the team’s play throughout the initial five games. He began the season with five catches that totaled 100 yards in Week 1 in the game against Cleveland Browns.
