Robbie Anderson says Baker Mayfield tweet was meant as support for Sam Darnold

USA TODAY Sports

Robbie Anderson said he doesn’t know Baker Mayfield, and the Panthers receiver doesn’t have anything against the Browns quarterback.

Anderson’s tweet last month opposing a Panthers’ trade for Mayfield was more about Sam Darnold than Mayfield, Anderson said Wednesday.

“Just trying to be a good teammate to my quarterback. That’s it,” Anderson said. “Just trying to defend the guy who is my quarterback in a sense. You know what I’m saying? That’s it.

“I mean, that’s my quarterback. I’ve got to make him right and stand up for him.”

Anderson responded to a fan on Instagram about the Panthers being the most likely destination for Mayfield. “Nooooo,” Anderson wrote before later deleting it.

“I said what I said. That’s just my thinking out loud. My thought,” Anderson said.

Mayfield still could land in Carolina via a trade, and Anderson’s reaction to the possibility was less negative Wednesday.

“It would be what it is, you know,” Anderson said.

Anderson spent two years with Darnold with the Jets, and last season, the two were together with the Panthers.

  1. Has to backtrack his comments now that the trade is getting closer to happening

  2. The Panthers should not get Baker Mayfield. He is a mediocre quarterback and they need an adult at the position.

  3. Why can’t guys stay off of Twitter and other social media? All it does is cause them problems.

  4. Dear Robbie-
    Every time you open your mouth, your value and credibility go down. STOP TALKING

  5. Nooooo, exactly what Darnold said when he heard Anderson was coming to Carolina.

  6. You can’t put toothpaste back in the tube!
    STAY OFF SOCIAL MEDIA!!

  7. If that was his true basis and intent, then I give him a good on you. Don’t care for all his social media nonsense or any other character traits or lack of sense he has shown,but I like the concept of standing up for your qb (or any other teammate) unlike some of the saints did for Brees.

  8. Twitter is for people who like to spout off at the mouth and then quickly regret it. I realize it’s a big deal for some but if you just peruse Twitter occasionally you can see why it’s a running joke. Tweet, delete, claim your account was hacked and then rinse and repeat. Good times!

  9. lol hopefully this will help all of these Baker supporters and sympathizers who somehow never seem to actually know much about him other than how ‘the browns really hosed baker, the best qb they’ve had in forever’….blah blah blah. Well this is the Baker experience, non-stop drama. Carolina is getting it and he isn’t even there yet. It never ends, he’ll insult other NFL players, he’ll have issues with teammates, he’ll have issues with coaches, he’ll say something rude to or about the fans, act like the fans almost don’t matter, etc. etc. – it’s always just under the surface, it’s constant, it’s mind numbing and there just aren’t enough W’s to go along with it to make it all truly worth it in the end. Our roster is stacked, therefore…hello Watson. Sorry but imo, baker did it to himself.

    As a Brown’s fan I get what your saying. I agree Baker did a lot of it to himself. However, after the past few months I’d take the Baker drama over the Watson drama all day every day.
