Panthers WR announces very important change
Carolina Panthers wide receiver Robby Anderson announced some very important news on Friday.
Anderson told reporters that he wants his named spelled “Robbie” from now on rather than “Robby.”
Robbie shared that he has even gone by “Robbie” in the past too.
Panthers’ WR Robbie Anderson told reporters today that he now will be going by Robbie as opposed to Robby. “I kinda like how it looks It’s better on paper with the ‘ie’ on the end,” Anderson said. “That’s what it was when I wore No. 3, too.”

That is some big news. We will make sure to reocgnize the proper spelling of his name moving forward.
Unfortunately, changing the spelling of his name won’t improve his quarterback situation. The Panthers have Baker Mayfield and Sam Darnold competing for the starting job.
Anderson is entering his third season with the Panthers. He had a big first season with them in 2020 when he caught 95 passes for 1,096 yards and 3 touchdowns. Last season he had a major dropoff with 53 catches for 519 yards.
Anderson isn’t the only notable NFL player recently to make changes to his name.
