As we've already posted earlier this morning, cornerback Adam Jones and defensive Derrick Harvey each received deals that are largely comparable to the league minimum for a player with their respective experiences. However the same isn't true with defensive end Jamaal Anderson, who was signed roughly at the same time as Harvey and the other handful of signings last Friday.
According to Aaron Wilson, Anderson signed a two-year deal worth $6 million that didn't come with a signing bonus. However Anderson, who is playing for his third-team after originally being selected eighth overall in the 2007 NFL draft by the Atlanta Falcons, will receive two roster bonuses this year, with $500,000 due on April 1 and another $500,000 due on August 1, later this year. Anderson is due a base salary of $1.6 million in 2012 and $2.5 million in 2013.
There are currently nine defensive linemen signed into the 2012 season, with Jamaal Anderson, Carlos Dunlap, Derrick Harvey, Michael Johnson and Robert Geathers as the team's defensive ends.
