According to ESPN Boston the New England Patriots have a need at linebacker and they could find that answer in former NFL veteran Carolina Panthers linebacker James Anderson. Anderson spent his 2013 season on the Chicago Bears roster and will turn 31 years old in September.
Last week, the team had Anderson in for a visit and he could be a very solid option. He was part of Chicago’s nickel package last season and at 6-foot-2 and 235 pounds was viewed as a player whose athleticism and coverage skill trumped his physicality. He led the Bears in tackles, but Chicago, which struggled on defense in 2013, made little effort to re-sign him. The Bears had to rely heavily on Anderson last season, but in New England, he’d be more of a complementary/depth option and I could see his smarts and versatility potentially appealing to the coaching staff to challenge for that type of role.
