Anderson is a 6'6", 282 pound defensive end, that has some experience at DT.

According to Wiki, his first career sack came against Kyle Orton.

With Sedrick Ellis retiring a few hours ago, adding Anderson brings the Bears back up to 90 players on the roster.

Like Ellis, Anderson is also a former 1st round draft pick. Chicago GM Phil Emery was working in Atlanta when the Falcons drafted him.

What do you think of Anderson's chances on making the final 53 man roster?
