What you need to know about free-agent linebacker Jonathan Anderson.

Background

Anderson originally signed with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free-agent out of Texas Christian University. At TCU, he appeared in 33 games, recording 170 total tackles (106 solo), 9 tackles for a loss, 1 interception, 2 passes defensed, 2 forced fumbles and 3 fumble recoveries. He graduated with a degree in criminal justice.

Looking Ahead

Anderson was out of football last year except for one quick week with the Cardinals, who didn't activate him for a game. If the Giants are looking for him to potentially be a solution to the pass rush and run defense woes, they might be better off looking elsewhere given Anderson's lack of production at both the college and pro levels.
