Anderson is active for Sunday's game against Seattle.||||||| He is active for the first time since having surgery on his left knee, which he hurt in a 45-3 loss at San Francisco on Oct. 7.
Posted March 21, 2012
The Buffalo Bills continued to target improving their pass rush in free agency by signing Anderson.||||||| Listed at 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds, Anderson has 35-1/2 sacks in six seasons, including 10 last year with the New England Patriots. Selected in the fifth-round of the 2006 draft by Chicago, Anderson spent four-plus seasons with the Bears before finishing the 2010 season playing with Williams in Houston.
Posted Oct. 07, 2010
The Houston Texans signed Anderson on Wednesday and waived defensive end Ryan Denney.||||||| Anderson was cut by Chicago on Tuesday. The 6-foot-4, 255-pound lineman had 12 sacks as a rookie in 2006, helping the Bears reach the Super Bowl. He had only nine sacks over the next three seasons and has none this year. Houston has been looking for a defensive end to complement All-Pro Mario Williams, who has five of the team's nine sacks this season.
