Found July 23, 2013 on NESN.com:
One year after signing him to a four-year, $21 million contract, the Buffalo Bills decided to cut defensive end Mark Anderson. Anderson played in just five games with the Bills in 2012, suffering a season-ending knee injury in a Week 5 loss to the 49ers. He registered just 12 tackles and one sack in his lone season in Buffalo. The 30-year-old pass rusher made a name for himself during his rookie season with the Chicago Bears in 2006, recording 12 sacks and finishing second in Defensive Rookie of the Year voting. After a few underwhelming seasons in Chicago and then Houston, Anderson reestablished himself with the Patriots in 2011. Anderson was used as a third-down pass rusher with the Patriots and excelled in that role, finishing the season with 10 sacks. He also played a big part in the Patriots’ run to the Super Bowl during the postseason, managing 11 tackles and 2.5 sacks including 1.5 in the Super Bowl loss to the Giants. The Patriots may still be in need of a third-down rusher ...

Bills release DE Mark Anderson

The Buffalo Bills have announced that they’ve released defensive end Mark Anderson after signing him to a nice four-year $19.5 million free agent contract in 2012.

The Buffalo Bills have cut former Patriot Mark Anderson, just one year after signing the defensive end to a four year, $19.5 million contract. Anderson was expected to team up with fellow free agent DE Mario Williams to form a fearsome pass rushing duo in Buffalo, but was a disappointment in his only season with the team. He appeared in just five games before undergoing season ending...

2013 Buffalo Bills Roster Projection: Pre Training Camp Edition

Before the Buffalo Bills kick off their 2013 training camp, I thought we’d do a quick projection of what the final 53 man roster might look like. This is very speculative and meant to encourage discussion (EMBRACE DEBATE), so think of my picks below as a “jumping off” point. It will also be interesting to see how impressions/opinions about certain players change over the next...

Fred Jackson and His New Role

Welcome to DJ’s Chalk Talk: Offseason Week Five! This week we take a look at Fred Jackson’s role in the Bills offense. With the emergence of C.J. Spiller last season, it look’s like Fred Jackson’s days as a starter in a Bills uniform are behind him. However, that doesn’t mean that he no longer brings value to this team. At the age of 32, Jackson has a relatively fresh pair...

Buffalo Bills Part Ways with Mark Anderson

ProFootballTalk.com has reported that the Buffalo Bills have parted ways with defensive end Mark Anderson following a dismal season that saw him sit out most of the season with a knee injury.

Bills release Mark Anderson; place Chris Hairston on PUP list

The Buffalo Bills made a big roster move prior to the start of training camp, releasing veteran defensive end Mark Anderson after just one season with the team. Anderson, 30, played in just five games with the Bills last season, making one sack, before a knee injury caused him to miss the rest of the year. He revealed toward the end of the season that the injury was a torn lateral...

Buffalo Bills Make Shocking Annoncement

Mark Anderson is back on the open market just a year after leveraging a strong double-digit season with the New England Patriots into a four-year, $19.5 million contract (with $8 million guaranteed) with the Buffalo Bills. [RELATED: New England Patriots No Longer AFC East Favorite?] Tuesday’s announcement comes as a slight surprise considering the club had such high hopes...

Bills Release Mark Anderson

The Buffalo Bills open up training camp at St. John Fisher College in four days. When they do, it will be without one of there free agent signings from 2012 as the team has released veteran defensive end Mark Anderson.

Jairus Byrd and ?: Breaking down the Buffalo Bills Defensive Backs

The Buffalo Bills should have signed Jairus Byrd to a long-term contract. There are only a few players to build the defense around are Mario Williams and Jairus Byrd. The Bills appears to have a decent core but many are coming off a sub-par year. The front seven struggled last year. Buffalo really needs Byrd’s play making ability. However since no long-term contract has been signed...

BuffalOkie Mondays: Stevie Johnson Continues to Be Underrated

In the day and age of social media, blogs, and roughly 5,000 sports networks on television, I’ve come to grips with the fact that I’m going to come across an opinion or two that I disagree with.  Most of the time I can at least see the writer’s angle, respectfully disagree, and move on down the road.  But when I saw that NFL.com writer Chris Wesseling ranked Bills wide receiver...

Predicting the Media-Driven Storylines (That Haven’t Happened Yet)

Every summer there are storylines that emerge from Buffalo Bills training camp. Most of them are media-and-fan-driven rather than leaked by the coaches, which is natural since it’s not the coaches’ job to create fodder for writers. The interesting thing about these story lines is that they generally seem to be the same every year, just with different players filling the roles...

New-look Buffalo Bills seek to end losing ways

New general manager. New coach. New quarterback. These are certainly not the same old Buffalo Bills after newly promoted team president Russ Brandon delivered on his New Year's Day vow to transform a team whose relevancy he described as ''tarnished.'' The familiar question is whether this latest fresh start will work any better than the many that preceded it...

Happy Birthday to Stevie Johnson

I’ve grown up since then Juan… Stevie Johnson is quietly a sold fantasy receiver for the Buffalo Bills and should not be ignored by you in fantasy drafts. Although the QB situation in Buffalo isn’t ideal, he made it work with Ryan Fitzpatrick, yes, Ryan Fitzpatrick. Happy 27th Stevie. See more celebrity B-Days here.
