Robbie Anderson trade costs Cardinals 2 future, late Day 3 picks

The Arizona Cardinals made a move Monday to add a wide receiver to the team after the injury to Marquise Brown. They acquired receiver Robbie Anderson from the Carolina Panthers for what was announced by the team as undisclosed future draft compensation.

We know what the compensation is.

The Cardinals agreed to give up a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 seventh-round pick.

The Cardinals had already committed their 2023 seventh-round pick to the Las Vegas Raiders in the trade for cornerback Trayvon Mullen.

Anderson is under contract through 2023.

The 6-3, 190-pound receiver had 95 receptions for 1,096 yards and three touchdowns in 2020. His usage is down this year. Through six games he has only caught 13 passes for 206 yards and a touchdown.

The Cardinals play on Thursday night this week and Anderson could have a small role even this week.
