Bengals Release Defensive End Jamaal Anderson

Andrew Weber-US PRESSWIRE

The Cincinnati Bengals have trimmed their defensive end roster by one on Wednesday, releasing defensive end Jamaal Anderson.

The Cincinnati Bengals announced on Wednesday that they've released defensive end Jamaal Anderson.

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.

According to Joe Reedy with the Cincinnati Enquirer, $200,000 will count as dead money through a workout bonus.
