Robbie Anderson kicked out
The Panthers receiver was kicked out of the game and sent to the locker room by the team’s own head coach, Steve Wilks, in the fourth quarter of the Carolina’s 24-10 loss to the Rams in Los Angeles on Sunday.
Trailing by multiple scores, a frustrated Anderson had more than one argument with Panthers coaches on the sideline, according to NFL Network.
He could be seen in a video angrily approaching receivers coach Joe Dailey, and the two came face-to-face before jawing at each other and needing to be separated.
It was not clear what they said, but both Anderson and Dailey’s tempers flared in the exchange.
A few moments later, Wilks could be seen speaking with Anderson before pointing in the direction of the tunnel.
Anderson was then escorted down the sideline and into the tunnel while shaking his head in disbelief, taking time to turn back and shout back in Wilks’ direction.
It marked a tumultuous start to Wilks’ tenure as the Panthers’ interim head coach. He took over on Monday after the team fired Matt Rhule.
Anderson committed to Temple University to play college football for the Temple Owls over offers from other schools including Illinois, Indiana, and Marshall.
After redshirting his first year in Philadelphia, Anderson saw time on special teams during his redshirt-freshman season and practiced primarily as a defensive back.
Following Matt Rhule’s hiring as Temple’s head coach, Anderson switched to wide receiver in 2013 and caught 44 passes for 791 receiving yards and nine touchdowns. In the 2013 season, Anderson set a Temple school-record for receiving yards in a game with 239 against SMU.
Anderson missed the 2014 season, however, due to academic eligibility issues. Also he spent 2014 taking classes at a community college in Florida.
Anderson returned to Temple for his senior season in 2015 season and had 70 catches for 939 yards. Anderson’s reception and yardage totals were the second most ever by a Temple player in school history.
He was selected to the Eastern College Athletic Conference All-Conference team and Third Team All-Conference team by Phil Steele in recognition of his senior season. Following his senior season, Anderson was selected to play in the 2016 East–West Shrine Game.
Robbie Anderson signed a 2 year, $29,500,000 contract with the Carolina Panthers, including a $11,510,000 signing bonus, $20,500,000 guaranteed.
|Contract:||2 yr(s) / $29,500,000|
|Guaranteed at Signing||$20,500,000|
|Free Agent:||2024 / UFA|
The Carolina Panthers and the wide receiver have agreed to terms on a two-year, $29.5 million contract extension, with more than $20 million of that guaranteed, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday, per sources informed of the deal. Carolina later announced the agreement, which runs through the 2023 season.
Undrafted out of Temple University in 2016, Anderson was a more-than-pleasant surprise as a rookie for the New York Jets, starting eight games and making 42 catches.
His career took off from there, and the Panthers brought him in prior to last season on a two-year deal for $20 million, with $10 million guaranteed. He responded by posting career highs in starts (16), catches (95) and yards (1,096).
