Mark Anderson Making Free Agent Stop In Buffalo

The Buffalo Bills still appear keen to address their pass-rushing situation, even with $100 million man Mario Williams on board. The team announced Tuesday night that veteran free agent defensive end Mark Anderson is in town meeting with team officials, and will be conducting his official visit on Wednesday.

Anderson, who will turn 29 in May, spent the 2011 season with the New England Patriots, where he recorded 10 sacks for the AFC champions. The year prior, he recorded four sacks as a part-time pass rusher and teammate of Williams' with the Houston Texans. The seventh-year pro spent his first four seasons with the Chicago Bears, and he has accumulated 35.5 sacks in 93 career games.

Anderson was a free agent target of the Tennessee Titans, but they just signed Kamerion Wimbley to a lucrative five-year deal. The Pats would also like him back, but only at the right price. It is conceivable that in Buffalo, Anderson could push for the starting right end job; at worst, he would give the team a proven sub-package rush threat capable of replacing Chris Kelsay on obvious passing downs.

Clearly, however, Buddy Nix is serious about getting after opposing quarterbacks.
