Ex-Cleveland Browns Quarterback Derek Anderson is searching for a new home and Carolina might just be the perfect fit.

Last season Anderson struggled, posting a 42.1 quarterback rating and was benched twice in favor of Brady Quinn.

It’s a season that made it easy to forget Anderson was a Pro Bowler only three years ago.

In 2007, under the guidance of former Browns assistant coach and current Panthers offensive coordinator, Jeff Davidson, Anderson threw for over 3,700 yards, with 29 touchdowns and 19 interceptions.

He was selected to his first Pro Bowl and touted as one of the league’s up-and-coming quarterbacks.

Now, three years later and at 26-years-old, Anderson can still play and it's not inconceivable to think he can resurrect his career.

All Anderson may need is just a new opportunity and the magic of an old coach. All of which he can find in Carolina.
