The Carolina Panthers officially parted ways with wide receiver Robbie Anderson on Monday, sending him to the Arizona Cardinals in exchnage for two late-round draft picks. Anderson was clearly disgruntled with his role on the team, and tensions hit a boiling point in Week 6 when he was removed from the team's sideline following a heated exchange with a coach.

Anderson's departure presents a significant shakeup to the Panthers' otherwise lackluster wide receiving corps. Here's how the depth chart currently looks following that deal.

Panthers WR Depth Chart

  • DJ Moore
  • Shi Smith
  • Laviska Shenault Jr.
  • Terrace Marshall Jr.
  • Rashard Higgins

Carolina currently has just five WRs on the active roster with Anderson gone and Andre Roberts on IR. Top pass-catcher DJ Moore leads this group, but it's been an uncharacteristically down season for the fifth-year pro. He's recorded just 204 yards and 1 TD over the first six games, putting his streak of 1,000-yard campaigns in serious jeopardy.

Shi Smith now ranks third on the team in targets (20) after Anderson's departure. He's recorded a meager 8 receptions and 101 yards so far.

Marshall and Shenault, meanwhile, both have fewer than 5 receptions in 2022. Higgins hasn't recorded recorded a target yet in three appearances.

Suffice it to say, the Panthers' receiving corps looks even more concerning than it already was. It's difficult to see any of Baker Mayfield, Sam Darnold, PJ Walker, Jacob Eason or Matt Corral having much success as passers until things change.
