ESPN.com reports Willie Anderson's agent and the Cincinnati Bengals are back in discussions for an extension that could see his career end in stripes.
While an agreement is not imminent, ESPN.com has learned that the Bengals have proposed a three-year extension for Anderson, a three-time Pro Bowl performer and one of the team's leaders on and off the field. Anderson, 31, is seeking a five-year extension, and his financial expectations are higher than what the club has offered so far, but the two sides are expected to continue the discussions.
Anderson has been my favorite Bengal for years. If you're a fan, I really don't need to explain why. If the team signs Anderson to a career ending contract keeping the two tackles together, that would send a huge message to the team about loyalty; one of the few things the Mike Brown era Bengals has done well.
