The Bears signed the 2007 first-round pick to help provide veteran depth at defensive end after he appeared in 77 games over six years with the Falcons, Colts and Bengals.

Anderson's departure also bodes well for Cornelius Washington, a sixth-round draft pick this year. The Bears already have perennial Pro Bowler Julius Peppers anchoring one lineman position, with Northwestern product Corey Wootton and 2012 first-rounder Shea McClellin rotating in as well.
