ANDERSON, Ind. (AP)

Former first-round draft pick Jamaal Anderson has agreed to terms with the Indianapolis Colts and is expected to arrive at training camp Tuesday.

Agent Joel Segal confirmed the deal, but would not disclose terms of the contract.

The Atlanta Falcons took the 6-foot-6, 289-pound defensive lineman with the No. 8 overall selection in 2007. But the Arkansas alum never lived up to expectations. In 47 career starts, he had 83 tackles and 4 1/2 career sacks.

Indy has been looking to upgrade its defensive line and the hope is Anderson could help stop the run. The Colts took defensive end Jerry Hughes with their first-round pick in 2010 and defensive tackle Drake Nevis in the third round this year.
