As the free agency market begins to cool off, there are only a few upper echelon players left on the open market. One of those could be defensive end Mark Anders, who's coming off a double-digit sack season with the New England Patriots in 2011. The Jacksonville Jaguars do have interest in the defensive end, according to a report by Tania Ganguli of The Florida Times-Union, but there is no visit scheduled yet.
Former Patriots defensive end Mark Anderson is in Tennessee today to visit with the Titans. The Jaguars have interest in Anderson, but have not scheduled a visit yet, according to a source.
Given the contracts the Jaguars paid defensive end Jeremy Mincey ($20 million with $9 million guaranteed) and Laurent Robinson ($32.5 million with $13.8 million guaranteed) Anderson likely wouldn't come cheap.
Anderson is currently visiting with the Tennessee Titans and has already visited with the Miami Dolphins. There is also the feeling that Anderson would like to return to the Patriots. Anderson was originally drafted by the Bears in 2006 and has 35.5 sacks in his career. Anderson is 28 years old and has two double-digit sack seasons in his career.
