James Anderson

Height: 6-2
Weight: 235
Years In NFL: 8
Last Team: Chicago Bears
2013 Stats: 102 tackles, 4.0 sacks
Career Stats: 557 tackles, 12.5 sacks, 4 ints, 4 FF

Latest News: Anderson recently tried out for the New England Patriots.

Cowboys Angle: The 30-year old Anderson led the Chicago Bears in tackles last year after spending seven seasons as a member of the Carolina Panthers. It’s obvious that he is looking for one last pay day, but seems to be finding it hard in this current market. Anderson is a good athlete with above average coverage ability. But he mainly played in the nickel package for the Bears last year. Anderson could certainly fit in Dallas, but at what price?

  • Trey

    James Anderson!!!!

  • Old Frog

    We have enough players trying to come back from injuries.

  • Bill Smith

    Johnathan Vilma, and after this, stop signing and drafting players with a history of injuries.

  • Bill Smith

    Dallas will be fined because they disobeyed the OTA rules of no Contact during these practices.

  • BradAustin

    I’d consider Vilma for sure. Certainly if we are planning on starting anyone but Carter. However, the intriguing name you mentioned is London Fletcher. Sign me up right now for this ageless wonder. All this guy does is produce…even in his 50′s. lol Well that’s what it seemed like watching him maul us annually for what felt like an eternity. If I recall, he was solid even last year. I’ve never seen Fletcher look like he regressed. It’s time to put a solid season in for the good guys. lol

    • David

      I think out of that group Vilma is the only option.

  • LandryHat

    As I was researching for this article it really became evident that there isn’t much out there right now. And I keep hearing the same names being floated out there, but some of these details are being left out. Bottom line: If they are available right now, there certainly is a reason for it.

    Dallas should develope Bruce Carter, Justin Durant, Anthony Hitchens (R), and DeVonte Holloman and determine if they are capable to start. The list provided by Steven consists of over the hill and injured or rehabbing and the Cowboys do not need to go there. Dallas is not making a Super Bowl run this year so lets find out what the future holds.
