The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Wednesday that they've released defensive end Jamaal Anderson.
We have released DE Jamaal Anderson. #Bengals— Cincinnati Bengals (@Bengals) July 10, 2013
Anderson signed a two-year deal on March 24, 2012 when Cincinnati watched two of their more successful free agents in Frostee Rucker and Jonathan Fanane leave -- who are both ironically gone from the those teams.
Anderson's season in 2012 was quickly cut short, placed on Injured Reserve on Sept. 18 after suffering a torn quad tendon against the Cleveland Browns in week two. With Robert Geathers and Wallace Gilberry re-signing during free agency earlier this year, and the team drafting defensive end Margus Hunt, Anderson was quickly dispensable.
After being selected No. 8 overall during the 2007 NFL draft, Anderson has played with three teams in six seasons, including the Bengals, Atlanta Falcons and Indianapolis Colts.
