Cardinals release WR Chosen Robbie Anderson

The Arizona Cardinals have released wide receiver Chosen Robbie Anderson, the team announced on March 8.

Anderson was acquired by the Cardinals in a trade with the Carolina Panthers. In 10 games with the Cardinals last season, the 29-year-old Anderson – who apparently changed his first name in the offseason – caught only seven passes for 76 yards.

Anderson's best season in the NFL came in 2020 when he caught 95 passes for over 1,000 yards.

The Cardinals traded for Anderson on Oct. 17, sending a pair of future late-round draft picks back to the Carolina Panthers. The hope was the 6-foot-3, 190-pounder would help the offense after an injury to Marquise Brown.

The move will save new GM Monti Ossenfort and the Cardinals around $12 million in salary cap space. Anderson was acquired during previous GM Steve Keim’s tenure.
