Anderson arrives at One Bills Drive
Buffalo Bills General Manager Buddy Nix joked with reporters following the Mario Williams signing that the contract may dry up their interest in the free agent market. As it turns out, he really was just kidding around.
The Bills announced on Wednesday morning that free agent defensive end Mark Anderson had arrived to team facilities for his official visit. The team tweeted a picture on Tuesday night of Anderson meeting defensive coordinator Dave Wannstedt and defensive line coach William Inge for dinner.
Anderson, most recently of the New England Patriots, had 10 sacks for the AFC Champions in limited time on the field. He was a consistent force for New England all season long, and proved to be a menace in the playoffs as well. He had 2.5 sacks in three post-season games.
The unrestricted free agent has already been on two visits since the market opened up, visiting with the Miami Dolphins and most recently the Baltimore Ravens.
He's spent time with both the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans as well. His rookie season, Anderson had a whopping 12 sacks in 2006, but accounted for only 13.5 sacks over the course of the next four years.
With Mario Williams filling the left defensive end position, Anderson could slot in on the right side.
