Jamaal Anderson joins Colts
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.
