Bills release Anderson

Colt Anderson’s days with the Buffalo Bills appear to be over.

The Bills cut the 2004 Butte High graduate on Monday. The move came to clear rosters space after the team signed quarterback Joe Webb.

If no team claims Anderson on waivers, he will be free to sign with any team.

Anderson, who went from walk-on to All-American at the University of Montana, signed to play for the Bills before the 2016 season. He suffered a broken arm last season, and spent much of the summer on the Physically Unable to Perform List with a foot injury.

The 31-year-old Anderson signed with the Minnesota Vikings after going undrafted in the April 2009 NFL Draft. After spending a year and a half on the Vikings practice squad, Anderson signed with the Philadelphia Eagles during the 2010 season.

The backup safety and special teams ace was named captain for the Eagles playoff game that season.

Anderson stood out on special teams for the Eagles through the 2013 season. He signed with the Indianapolis Colts before the 2014 season and spent two years in Indy before signing with the Bills.
