Bennie Anderson – Signed by the Bills in 2005
Bennie Anderson had a nice run as a starter in the National Football League. Most of it, though, wasn’t in Buffalo.
Anderson was signed by the Rams as an undrafted free agent, but didn’t last long there. It was on to the XFL in 2001, where he caught the eye of scouts from Baltimore. The Ravens signed him, and plugged him at guard. At 6-foot-5 and 345 pounds, Anderson was one of the biggest guards in the league and became known for his run blocking.
He became a free agent in 2005, and the Bills thought he could help. The two sides agreed on a three-year deal for $5.1 million. Anderson started 14 games in his first season in Buffalo, but he never got a second campaign. The guard was waived in June 2006, perhaps because of the coaching change with the Bills as Dick Jauron replaced Mike Mularkey. Anderson signed with the Dolphins, who had hired Mularkey as their offensive coordinator, and played the final two games of his NFL career there.
