• Panthers release James Anderson

    Summary of 11 articles · Updated Mar 15, 2013
    And the Panthers like Anderson. The Carolina Panthers are releasing linebacker James Anderson , according to Adam Schefter. As Cam Newton’s backup, Panthers quarterback Derek Anderson doesn’t get on the field much. Rob Rogers, the Panthers’ salary-cap manager, told Anderson he was being released and he needed to come to Bank of America Stadium for a physical. Anderson’s return probably means Jimmy Clausen is headed for his third straight year as the No. 3 quarterback after starting much of his rookie year. It was one of several big-money extensions handed out by the Panthers in recent offseasons that has put the team in a tight salary-cap situation for 2013. At some point, they should consider adding a more mobile understudy, who would both be able to run the base offense if Newton gets hurt and to serve as the scout-team quarterback when preparing for the growing number of teams with mobile quarterbacks.
