Panthers’ Anderson: ‘I don’t have an issue with’ Mayfield

Carolina Panthers wide receiver Robbie Anderson tweeted Wednesday that he’s fine with his team’s acquisition of quarterback Baker Mayfield from the Cleveland Browns.

“I don’t have an issue with Baker, stop tryna paint that narrative,” Anderson wrote.

After the Browns traded Mayfield to the Panthers for a 2024 conditional fifth-round pick Wednesday, Anderson became a trending topic around the NFL for comments he made earlier this offseason.

In April, the pass-catcher commented “Nooooo” on a post made by a fan account that linked Mayfield to the Panthers. He then stood by his comment on another post.

Anderson addressed the remarks in June, saying they were meant as support for Panthers quarterback Sam Darnold.

Darnold and Anderson played together on the New York Jets for two seasons in 2018 and 2019. Carolina signed Anderson in the 2020 offseason and traded for Darnold a year later.

Mayfield and Darnold are expected to compete for the starting job in Carolina this season.
