Anderson to mimic Jason Taylor?

Posted by Chris Brown on July 29, 2012 – 8:13 am

In Dave Wannstedt’s defensive scheme many Bills fans figure with Mario Williams being the most gifted pass rusher might has some duties that were similar to those of Jason Taylor when he was in Wannstedt’s defense in Miami. Former Bills guard and nine-time Pro Bowler thinks there’s another guy that might be a better fit for the things that Taylor used to do for the Dolphins.

Brown played with Anderson for two years in Chicago (2006-2007), and indicated that Lovie Smith tried to make use of Anderson in a similar fashion to the way Wannstedt used Taylor in Miami.

“I think the Bears when I was there my last year they were looking to have him do some of that Jason Taylor walk around stuff, even though Lovie had a different defense,” Brown told Buffalobills.com. “But Mark, I sing his praises because he put in hard work when I played with him. I’m happy that he’s here because I’m going to come by a little more often because I like him.”

Of course there’s no indication from the Bills coaching staff that those are their plans for Anderson. At this point they’re still trying to determine who will win the starting right defensive end job between Anderson, Chris Kelsay and Shawne Merriman.
