Jaamal Anderson Visiting The Cincinnati Bengals On Friday

According to his twitter account, free agent defensive end Jamaal Anderson is visiting with the Cincinnati Bengals on Friday (h/t to Joe Reedy for the heads up). Anderson, former eighth overall draft pick during the 2007 NFL draft, spent four seasons with the Atlanta Falcons, generating 4.5 quarterback sacks during his run there. He signed with the Indianapolis Colts in 2011, playing 15 games and posting three quarterback sacks last year.

Scout, Inc writes about Anderson:

Anderson has prototypical size along with good initial quickness and above-average acceleration off the edge. He is not real quick to read blocking schemes or to feel pressure. Also, he lets himself get pushed on by the play or the pocket too easily. He tends to rely on his speed too much and needs to develop more counter moves. He has a tendency to play too tall and needs to work on keeping his pad level down to leverage blocks.

Though seemingly disappointing during his young NFL career, Anderson kind of fits the mold of Cincinnati giving second chances to former first-round selections on defense. That list of names includes Adam Jones, Kelly Jennings, Manny Lawson, Nate Clements and Reggie Nelson.
