  NFL | Jamaal Anderson healthy    Mon Mar 23, 05:21 PM

Free-agent DE Jamaal Anderson (knee) said he's fully recovered from a knee injury after taking part in the veteran combine this past weekend. 'I feel outstanding, not just physically but mentally, and I think it definitely humbled me to sit back and realize that I'm not entitled as a first-rounder to be on a roster. I think I'm going to cherish more of the journey now,' Anderson said.

Footballguys view: Anderson was the 8th overall pick in the 2007 NFL draft to the Atlanta Falcons. He's struggled to stay healthy and play effectively, so now Anderson is looking for another chance. At 6'6" 280 pounds, Anderson could get some attention from his performance at the veteran combine.

  Bears | Jamaal Anderson cut    Sat Aug 17, 12:56 PM

The Chicago Bears have released DE Jamaal Anderson.

Footballguys view: Anderson has now been cut by two teams (Bengals, Bears) over the last month or so. Some think he may not be fully recovered from the quadriceps injury that cut his 2012 season short. We'll see if any team out there bites on Anderson now that he's on the open market (again).

  Bengals | Jamaal Anderson cut    Wed Jul 10, 03:51 PM

The Cincinnati Bengals have released DE Jamaal Anderson.

Footballguys view: No real surprise here. Anderson has been a bust since the Falcons selected him in the top 10 of the 2007 NFL draft. This transaction saves the Bengals $2.5MM in cap space this year. Anderson should be able to latch on as a camp body with some team around the league but it's no guarantee he'll make a final roster in 2013.

The Atlanta Falcons have released WR Michael Jenkins and DE Jamaal Anderson.

Footballguys view: Anderson never lived up to his draft status and failed to become the pass rusher the Falcons wanted. Cutting Jenkins was telegraphed when the team moved up into the top 10 of the 2011 NFL Draft to select WR Julio Jones.

  Falcons | May look for Jamaal Anderson to lose weight    Wed Jul 13, 04:51 PM

The Atlanta Falcons may look to get DE Jamaal Anderson as light and quick as possible in hopes of having him be a pass rush option in third down and long situations.

Footballguys view: The Falcons need to light a fire under Anderson. The former first-round pick has been a bust so far during his pro career and has not played up to his potential. Only 4 sacks in 4 seasons is putrid production for a player with so much upside.

Atlanta Falcons DEs Kroy Biermann, Jamaal Anderson and Lawrence Sidbury will compete for snaps at left defensive end during training camp, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter, of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
