Cardinals release Chosen Robbie Anderson

As expected, the Cardinals have chosen to part ways with wide receiver Chosen Robbie Anderson.

The team announced Anderson’s release on Wednesday afternoon. The move clears $12 million in cap space for them to use this season.

Anderson was just Robbie when the Cardinals traded for him last season, but he recently announced that he’s changed his name to Chosen. The Cardinals sent a 2024 sixth-round pick and a 2025 seventh-round pick to Carolina for Anderson, who had been sent to the locker room mid-game by Panthers interim head coach Steve Wilks in his final game with the team.

Anderson had been a productive receiver in the past and the Cardinals were in need of a healthy wideout, but he caught just seven passes for 76 yards in 10 games after the trade.

The move leaves the Cardinals with DeAndre Hopkins, Hollywood Brown, Rondale Moore, Javon Wims, Auden Tate, and exclusive rights free agent Greg Dortch at receiver. Hopkins may be the next one out the door, although he’d likely be departing via a trade rather than a release.

  1. CHOSEN to leave….or BE GONE
    Who really CONSCIOUSLY changes their name to CHOSEN??!!

  2. “What is a “Chosen”?”

    Someone who is removing all doubt about whether or not they are a diva WR.

  3. Yes, they have chose to go in a different direction. We wish you well in the future kid.

  4. Imagine what he would have changed his name to if he caught 8 passes last year…

  5. Even the elite players in pro sport when you get up there in age and start making name changes official in court, your career is over.

    People love the easy low hanging fruit on the name. Creative.

    Hey, when the man hangs that fruit low himself he has nobody else to blame when people take a hack at it.

  7. XFL is calling The Chosen. Cleary dude lives an alternate reality!
