Agrees to deal with Miami
Latest Headline: Published 2023-04-15
Anderson and the Dolphins agreed to terms on a contract Saturday, Daniel Oyefusi of the Miami Herald reports.
Anderson was released by Arizona following the 2022 campaign after catching just seven of 17 targets for 76 yards over 10 appearances with the Cardinals. He started the season with Carolina, where he posted 13 receptions on 27 targets for 206 yards and one score. The speedster had a career-high 1,096 receiving yards in 2020, but he's struggled to replicate that type of production since. He's not guaranteed anything in Miami, but if he's able to get back to his 2020 form, he could carve out a solid role behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle.

Cut by Arizona
Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-08
Arizona released Anderson on Wednesday, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
This move was expected after Anderson struggled to produce for the Cardinals after coming over in a midseason deal with the Panthers back in October. Over his 10 appearances for Arizona, Anderson tallied seven receptions for 76 yards and no touchdowns on 17 targets. Anderson's release clears $12 million in cap space for Arizona.
Expected to be released by Arizona
Latest Headline: Published 2023-03-06
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Cardinals are expected to release Anderson.
This is a no-brainer mover for new Cardinals GM Monti Ossenfort. Acquired from the Panthers in Week 7 last season, Anderson ended up catching seven passes for 76 scoreless yards across 10 games for Arizona. Releasing Anderson will save the Cardinals $12 million in cap space.
Ruled out for Week 18
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-06
Anderson (back) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the 49ers, Tyler Drake of ArizonaSports.com reports.
The 29-year-old wideout played 10 games for Arizona after an October trade, catching seven of 17 targets for 76 yards while mostly serving as the team's fourth or fifth wide receiver. Anderson will need to accept a pay cut to have any shot at sticking with the team, as his current contract calls for a non-guaranteed $8.8 million base salary and $3 million roster bonus in 2023, the final year of the deal. He'll be a free agent if/when the Cardinals release him.
Not practicing Thursday
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-05
Anderson (back) wasn't spotted on the field during Thursday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of ESPN.com reports.
With consecutive absences from practice to begin Week 18 prep, Anderson doesn't appear to be in a good spot as Sunday's game in San Francisco approaches. Unless Anderson can fit in some on-field activity Friday, he could be ruled out upon the release of the Cardinals' final Week 18 injury report. If Anderson is sidelined for the season finale, a few extra snaps could be opened up for A.J. Green and/or Andre Baccellia.
Sits out Wednesday
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-04
Anderson (back) didn't take part in Wednesday's walk-through practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports.
With DeAndre Hopkins (knee) out for Week 18 and Rondale Moore (groin) and Antoine Wesley (groin) on injured reserve, the Cardinals wide receivers that are available Sunday at San Francisco may be busy. Having said that, Anderson isn't able to practice to begin the week due to the back injury that forced an early exit from this past Sunday's defeat in Atlanta. In the end, he has two more sessions to turn the tide as it pertains to his availability this coming weekend.
Ruled out of Sunday's game
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-01
Anderson (back) won't return to Sunday's contest in Atlanta.
Anderson's Week 17 was abbreviated due to a back injury, resulting in one catch (on one target) for 13 yards. With DeAndre Hopkins (knee) inactive and Rondale Moore (groin) and Antoine Wesley (quadriceps) on IR, Marquise Brown, Greg Dortch, A.J. Green, Pharoh Cooper and Andre Baccellia are the available wide receivers on the Cardinals' active roster.
Questionable to return Sunday
Latest Headline: Published 2023-01-01
Anderson is questionable to return to Sunday's game against the Falcons with a back injury.
Anderson caught his lone target for 13 yards before exiting Sunday's contest. While the nature and severity of this back issue are still unclear, the 29-year-old was seen heading to the locker room before the end of the first half, according to Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site. With No. 1 wideout DeAndre Hopkins (knee) already inactive, Arizona will likely rely on Marquise Brown, Greg Dortch and A.J. Green to buoy the team's passing attack for the time being.
