Jamaal Anderson lands with the Colts

2007 No. 8 overall pick Jamaal Anderson had visits lined up with the Broncos and Titans, but he didn’t wind up signing with either team.

Instead, he’ll land with the Colts, a league source tells Florio.

Indianapolis doesn’t go for big ticket free agent items, but they aren’t opposed to scavenging for value. Anderson has played inside and out as a pro. He could fit the mold of a relatively lightweight Colts interior player.

The move is a sign how the secondary free agent market is closing up quickly.  The Broncos picked up Harvey on Monday.  The Titans re-signed Jacob Ford.  Anderson and other free agents know they better sign sooner than later before all the jobs dry up.

    And? What’s left after Mathis and Freeney? Foster? Exactly. Anderson was #6 DE against the run in 2010. I like that stat because that’s exactly what we need. If he checks in at DT on run downs, I think he can provide some real power. Not a bad pick up, at all.

    Colts can’t stop the run so the bring in a undersized DT. Do they like their defense being compared to a bag of stay puft marshmellows?

    This does not spell out good for Jerry Hughes. Remember him?

    What a horrible pick up. Have they even signed their first round tackle yet? Didn’t they draft a defensive tackle Miola? Where’s he at? Is he a bust? What about Hughes, busted pick too then?WTF is up with this front office? Talk about the absolute worst front office in the league. I’m sorry, but its true, there is no lick of sense with this front office. It turns out has been riding coatails of a Hall of Fame quarterback and former and soon to be Hall of Fame coach in Dungy. Its gotta be nice how a couple guys can keep such an inadequate group in business and working, what a bunch of frauds.

    How about a veteran offensive lineman? What about a receiver because you have no idea if Collie can stay healthy…How about a run stopping REAL defensive tackle? How about another good runblocking tight end, you know so you can RUN the ball on fourth and inches and not get stuffed…..Its rather boring talking about what this team needs since they ignore their weaknesses every year. Next topic please and lets move on.

    Yeah, it takes a team full of frauds to make the playoffs nine straight years. Can I answer a few of your inane questions you didn’t bother looking up? Fili MOALA is starting at defensive tackle this year. Jerry Hughes is only in his 2nd year, and is either a) insurance for Robert Mathis, who is in the final year of his deal or b) someone to dispel Freeney and Mathis late in the season. Jamaal Anderson was rated out way better as a run stopper than a pass rusher in Atlanta. He will shift inside to DT, and could start halfway through the season if he outplays Johnson and Foster.

    Anderson and Sims were two low cost tryouts for the Colts. If one pans out and one doesn’t, its a win. Seriously man, your hate is showing, because your post and your complaints are ridiculous. Of course the Colts have weaknesses. The defending Super Bowl champs do too. The team has always had turnover at linebacker (Washington, June, Keiaho, Thornton, Session, etc.) and you know what? Every time they left Indianapolis the quality of their play went downhill. I’m sure Polian is sad that Jason Culhane doesn’t approve of his offseason and all, but you can go worry about your team that has won less often over the last decade, which is of course, all of ‘em. Peace.
