The Arizona Cardinals find themselves at a 2-4 mark after Week 6.
It’s totally different from their performance last season, wherein they won their first seven games.
They are struggling to score, averaging just 19 points per game.
Meanwhile, they are putting up only 226.7 passing yards per game.
These depressing numbers prompted the Cardinals to trade for disgruntled wide receiver Robbie Anderson.

NFL Network national insider Ian Rapoport tweeted, “Sources: The #AZCardinals have traded for #Panthers WR Robbie Anderson. A new WR for Kyler Murray.”
Anderson had a confrontation with Panthers receivers coach Joe Dailey during their Week 6 game versus the Los Angeles Rams.
He was seen talking to Dailey on the sidelines before he was sent back to the locker room.
That confrontation proved to be the final wedge to convince the squad to trade Anderson.
With this trade, the Panthers hope to turn their fortunes around because another distraction is the last thing they need.
The Panthers have been in a lot of drama after Matt Rhule’s firing and Baker Mayfield‘s ankle injury.
Meanwhile, the Cardinals gained a wideout that had 1,096 yards in 2020.
He can help Arizona advance the ball to score more points.
A Glimpse Of Anderson’s Career
Anderson signed with the New York Jets after going undrafted in 2016.
He stayed there for four seasons before joining the Panthers on a two-year, $20 million deal.
The former Temple standout has 368 receptions, 4,880 yards, and 29 touchdowns through Week 5 of the 2022 season.
Barring any unwanted physical condition, Anderson can play for the Cardinals in Week 7 against the New Orleans Saints.
DeAndre Hopkins is still serving his suspension for testing positive for a banned performance-enhancing drug.
