Jamaal Anderson Signs With Bengals [Merge]


Recommended Posts

Alright, big deal. He didn't fit in our new scheme anyways. I wish him luck, but he won't get much time there. Johnson and Dunlap are two good starters, so he'll just be a rotation guy. Either way, I hope he does well there.

He was too small to play 3-4 DE. He didn't have enough muscle and he was 272 pounds. He was also too slow to play 3-4 OLB. 4-3 is not for him.

Yes, Moala will most likely start since he has experience playing in a 3-4 at USC. Nevis and Matthews should rotate in with Redding being a permanent starter there.

gotta trust the coaches and what they see and want

Jamaal Anderson - DL - Bengals

Bengals signed DE Jamaal Anderson, formerly of the Colts.

Joining Derrick Harvey, Anderson is the second former No. 8 pick in the draft to surface with Cincinnati on the same day. Still only 26 years old, Anderson was a rotational left end and defensive tackle in Indy last season, managing just 24 tackles and three sacks in 15 games. Pro Football Focus did grade Anderson as a serviceable run defender, but he's been a major NFL bust.

Already posted, but I'll still throw in my 2 cents.

He doesn't fit in the system. He's too small for 3-4 DE and too slow for 3-4 OLB. He is a 4-3 DE and that's it. I wish him well in Cincy, where he'll be a rotational player behind Michael Johnson.

He's a solid 6'6" 290 lbs....just about the most prototypical size for a 3-4 End. I would have liked to keep him as I think he's better than Moala but......

Whattaya gonna do?

He's 272 pounds. Do you want links?

Well now, it seems I have to put my foot in my typing fingers lol.

Currently listed at 272 on the Bengals, but I swear he was listed at 290 for us last year. I am not mistaken about that. Teams do lie about a guy's weight though. For a guy as tall as he was I'd say 290 looked about right though.

I believe you're right. He was listed at around 290 last year. I remember he was heavier than Brayton when they both signed but apparently Anderson dropped some weight, probably in attempt to become faster. I wish him well.

    • Do you think Bill Belichick has cornered the market on ideas?   Do you think he does not make mistakes?   BB made Dont’a Hightower one of the NFL ‘s highest paid players.  So, poof,  there goes your Leonard argument.  When players perform at a premium level you pay them what they’re worth.   Period.   You’re badly over-thinking this.   There is no perfect formula to a championship.   You think Ballard is not aware that when he pays a guard premium money that means he’ll be paying other positions less than premium.   He 100 percent knows that.     It’s always, Always, ALWAYS better to have too much talent than not enough.  Dallas has paid a fortune into its OL for years.   Smith, Martin, used to have Frederick at Center.  Used to have a good guard who left in FA, and then Collins who is now getting paid.   3 of their 5 getting top money and it used to be 4 before Frederick had to retire early.   They had a top 3 OL for years.   They figured out the rest of the roster.     They’re paying big money while a good number of younger players are on their cheaper rookie contracts.   That’s life for GM’s in the NFL.  Too much talent is always a good thing.    You never take a lesser player who plays a premium position over a much better player at a so-called non-premium position.   Never.   Do you think it’s a coincidence that the play of the Colts OL dramatically improved when Nelson joined the team?   Come on....   Sorry, but your logic is twisted beyond all recognition.     
    • Dang, four playoff spots up got grabs between six teams.  
    • Jag fans would riot..  
    • Colts wearing their color rush 
    • Maybe Nelson plays LT this week and balls out, then the problem is resolved, LOL.    IDK, depends on how the draft goes towards filling the pricey players at LT, DE, WR, and QB.  We might have to let one of Nelson or Leonard go.  We might get a 3rd round comp pick for Nelson's contract, 4th for Leonard's contract, and we could find a ILB in that round.  Don't have to make that decision for a while, and if Ballard can hit on those pricey position draft picks, we could pay both while the youngsters are playing on their rookie deals.   No, I doubt BB would pay either....and would take the comp picks.  But I don't think he is a great drafter given the number of picks he has had over the years.
