The Arizona Cardinals have cut wide receiver Chosen Robbie Anderson from their roster, in order to save a substantial $12 million in salary cap space, according to the team.

Anderson, who had legally changed his name twice in recent years, from Robby, to Robbie and now Chosen, was traded to the Cardinals from the Carolina Panthers last year, but failed to make much of an impact during his tenure with the team.

On October 17, Anderson was traded to the Arizona Cardinals for a 2024 sixth round draft pick and a 2025 seventh round draft pick.

Anderson’s departure was widely expected, given his underwhelming performance with the Cardinals last season, during which he managed just seven catches in ten games. While the wide receiver has shown flashes of potential during his NFL career, including a 1,096-yard season in 2020, he has been a major disappointment over the last two seasons.

Despite his recent struggles, Anderson will now hit free agency, hoping to find a new team that believes in his ability to bounce back and make an impact on the field. Anderson still presents a unique combination of size and speed which teams always look for. He’s listed at 6’3 and runs close to 4.3 forty time.

For Anderson, the next chapter of his NFL career remains uncertain, but he will undoubtedly be looking to prove his doubters wrong and show that he still has what it takes to succeed in the league.
