Derek Anderson is back in the NFL.
"First and foremost, he's a team-first guy," Bills head coach Sean McDermott said. "A guy that has been around, whether as a starter or a backup. A lot of football over the years. He's got a good outlook on the game from an offensive standpoint. He understands defenses. So there's just a lot of value to it in terms of where we are right now in that quarterback room."
A sixth-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens in 2005, Anderson has completed 54.1 percent of his career attempts while throwing 60 touchdowns and 60 interceptions. He was a Pro Bowler in 2007 with the Cleveland Browns after passing for 3,787 yards and 29 touchdowns. He parlayed that into a three-year, $24 million deal.
Anderson has made 47 starts in his 14-year career but only four since 2011, including two in 2016.
