All I see is he had 7 sacks back in 2010. Any Chiefs fan able to tell me a little about him?

Recently released by the Bucs. Revenge signing? Laughing

Anyway, he's a warm body. We're down to two DE's (Dunlap, MJ93) and Robert Geathers currently...

He absolutely killed us as a Chief for two straight years. Was shocked when the Chiefs didn't extend him.

Basically a small quick tackle. "DE" is a misnomer. When there are only 2 down linemen, both are DE, even when thye line up between the tackles. He penetrates very well, but is very easy to run against. Expect a lot of draw action when he is in.

I've always wondered how Anderson would fare in a 3-4.

I think that's the ideal position for him. He's only an average at best 4-3 DE. Think he'll provide more value as a 3-4 DE, as long as the scheme doesn't call for the 3-4 DE to provide a lot of pressure on the QB. He's not that stout though either. Anyway you look at it, he's meh.

Well we currently have a DE that can't stop the run or provide pressure on the QB. So upgrade...

If you look at our defensive line, realize that we cut him, then you'd realize he's probably not very good.

Well our current DE's until Dunlap gets healthy are Robert Geathers and MJ93. And that's it. So he'll be the second best healthy DE on the roster. Embarassed

I do expect Still, Lawson and possibly Geno to get snaps at DE though...

Realize he is a DT. In your system, either he's up against the best part of the roster, or he is playing out of position.

If you play him at DT, you'll get a good pass rusher who is weak against the run.

If you play him at DE, you'll get a guy who is too slow to really be an impact pass rusher, but will probably be capable against the run.

So it depends on where they put him. He's truly a tweener though. He was a nickel pass rush specialist for us (as, basically, a 4-3 UT), and was pretty good in that role, but he was never very effective anywhere else. His effectiveness slipped a bit, as well, as he tried to put on weight to become a full down 3-4 DE. It backfired pretty bad for him.

god, Jamaal Anderson was a absolutely TERRIBLE pick for us, and is the definition of a bust. I still don't know how we drafted that guy #8 overall in the entire '07 draft. Patrick Willis was taken 3 picks later, with Darrelle Revis taken 3 picks after that. There are a bunch of great players in this league that were taken after we selected Anderson.. like Bowe, Beason, Joe Staley, Ben Grubbs, Woodley, Kalil... and those are just a few of the players that are 1000000x better than Anderson ever was for us. That year, the two players I wanted the most for us to draft.. first it was LaRon Landry who I had a total man crush on coming out of LSU.. and sadly he was off the board 2 picks before us.. and the second guy I wanted terribly was Adrian Peterson, who was taken the pick immediately before ours (#7), when we had the 8th choice.

That selection still gives me nightmares to this day... guy was supposed to turn out to be a great pass-rusher from the DE position... that was so far from the case. That "pass-rush specialist" ended up racking up a total of 4.5 sacks in 4 years with us.. what a great pass-rusher. The sad thing is that the best he ever played as a Falcon is when we moved his [inappropriate/removed] inside to DT. He wasn't a good DT in any way shape or form.. but somehow was better there on the inside than he ever was on the edge as a DE. ***sigh***

Bengals fans... yall should be happy this clown is hurt for the rest of the year. Being able to bring in anyone at any position to replace his roster spot is good news because anyone off the streets could benefit your team better than this guy..

I wish it was Jamal Anderson.. guy was great for us back in the day. Its Jamaal Anderson that gives me nightmares.

Maybe a few years down the road Jamaaal Anderson comes around, and I'm sure the Falcons will end up drafting him,
