Rashard Anderson (born June 14, 1977) is a former American football cornerback in the NFL who played for the Carolina Panthers. Anderson was selected by the Panthers in the first round (23rd overall) of the 2000 NFL Draft. In his first NFL season, he appeared in 12 games, recording 21 tackles. Anderson ended the 2001 season with 47 tackles and his only career interception in 15 games.
Anderson was suspended for a year by the NFL on May 23, 2002 for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy. The suspension was extended for the 2003 season after Anderson failed to meet the requirements for reinstatement. Anderson was finally reinstated by the NFL following the 2003 season, and the Panthers immediately released him.
In May 2005 Anderson signed a contract with the Calgary Stampeders of the Canadian Football League. However, Anderson was released in June 2005 when the Stampeders cut their roster to the 40-player regular-season limit.
