  Patriots | James Anderson signed, Mark Harrison released    Wed Jun 4, 07:42 PM

The New England Patriots signed free-agent LB James Anderson (Bears) to an undisclosed deal Wednesday, June 4, and released WR Mark Harrison in a corresponding move. Anderson led the Chicago Bears in tackles last year with 102, but he projects to serve a reserve role for the Pats.

Footballguys view: Harrison was a favorite by some fantasy owners in super deep dynasty leagues. He may draw some interest on the open market because of his size/speed combination (when healthy).

  Panthers | Difficult decisions coming at linebacker?     Fri Apr 27, 03:02 PM

The Carolina Panthers will have a competition at linebacker after selecting Luke Kuechly from Boston College in the first round. Middle linebacker is his specialty, but that spot has been held down by Jon Beason (Achilles'), who is returning from injury. It's tough to see Kuechly sitting. LBs Thomas Davis (knee) and James Anderson hold down the other two backer spots; Davis is coming off yet another devastating knee injury and Anderson set a single-season record for tackles with the team last year.
