Eagles’ waive wide receiver Joe Anderson


Veteran wide receiver Joe Anderson was brought on board the Chicago Bears organization back in 2012 as an Undrafted Rookie free agent. He served as depth for the team, played in six games last year but was unable to record a single stat.

He ended up getting most of his playing time on special teams, where he recorded nine tackles and two forced fumbles in his short stay with the Monsters of the Midway.

Anderson was released from the practice squad by the Bears back in October of 2012 and replaced by Raymond Radway. He was placed on the injured reserve on November 5th of last year after suffering an abdominal and groin injury.

Joe was later waived by the Bears, which resulted in him being picked up by the Philadelphia Eagles. Just like in Chicago, Anderson never recorded an offensive stat in his even shorter stay with the team.

Now according to Geoff Mosher on Twitter, the Philadelphia Eagles have parted ways with Joe Anderson.

He’ll likely be brought on board during training camp by a team looking to add a little bit of depth at not only the position, but someone who has done fairly well while playing special teams.
