The Panthers may be the surprise team in 2020.
Everybody knows the Saints are loaded on talent, and they have Drew Brees for another season. Many Analysts are bold enough to say that the Buccaneers could dethrone the Saints and possibly reach the Super Bowl because they added Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski.
There’s another NFC South team that quietly had one of the best off-seasons. People should remember that the Panthers were 5-3 last season before the team fell apart and finished 5-11.
The Panthers quietly signed Teddy Bridgewater, who may have been the best quarterback signing in the NFC South. The new Panthers quarterback who went 5-0 last season. Outside of having Christian McCaffrey, Teddy will have another very good weapon at his disposal.
Panthers added a great wide receiver in free agency, by the name of Robby Anderson. Anderson comes over from the Jets to join the Panthers offense that yields RB Christian McCaffrey, QB Teddy Bridgewater, and WR D.J. Moore.
Anderson had 779 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns last season, which is solid. The impressive part is that Sam Darnold missed three games last season, so he performed well with Luke Faulk at backup quarterback, and even a young Sam Darnold for most of the year.
Anderson, who has scary deep speed, should find a career year with an upgrade at quarterback this year and a weapon like McCaffrey who can open the offense up. Expect the speed demon, Anderson, to make a ton of plays with Bridgewater in 2020.
Let’s take a look at the best No. 2 wideout in the NFC South.
