Colt Anderson is about to become a Buffalo Bill.
The former Butte High and University of Montana star told ButteSports this morning that he will sign a one-year contract with the Bills today. Anderson visited Buffalo late last week.
“I’m looking forward to it,” Anderson said of playing for head coach Rex Ryan and the Bills.
The 30-year-old Anderson spent the past two seasons as a backup safety and special teams ace for the Indianapolis Colts. He was the team’s special teams representative on the Pro Bowl ballot both seasons.
Anderson, who started one game at safety in 2015, registered 23 tackles in two seasons with the Colts.
Before playing in Indianapolis, which advanced to the AFC Championship Game following the 2014 season, Anderson played four seasons for the Philadelphia Eagles.
Philadelphia teammates voted Anderson as the Eagles Ed Block Courage Award recipient for 2012.
After walking on at the University of Montana, Anderson went on to earn All-American honors with the Grizzlies. He signed as a un-drafted free agent with the Minnesota Vikings in April 2009.
Anderson spent a year and a half on the Vikings practice squad before signing with the Eagles in November 2010.
The Bills went 8-8 in 2015, the first season under Ryan.
