Mark Anderson Taking His Visits

Patriots free agent defensive end / outside linebacker Mark Anderson, coming off a ten sack season and strong postseason performance, is arguably the Patriots' highest profile free agent remaining. That being said, after failing to come to an agreement with the Patriots, he's making his was around the league. Anderson has already visited the Dolphins, and according to the Boston Herald's Ian Rapoport, is set to visit two more teams:

The reclamation project who had 10 sacks in 2011 wants to be a member of the Patriots next year, and the Pats want him back. They'll just need to agree on money, and coach Bill Belichick isn't rushing to hand him a bag full of cash.

So, Anderson is doing his due diligence. After the Dolphins visit, I'm told the Titans are hosting him today. They are in need of help at end, specifically a player who can get after a quarterback. He also has another visit Monday with an as-yet-undisclosed team.

If Anderson signs elsewhere, it will be a serious blow to the Patriots' pass rush. After the team finally made big strides in that area in 2011, I doubt they'd want to regress there next season. Re-signing Anderson has to be a priority.
