Bengals Sign Draft Busts Jamaal Anderson and Derrick Harvey

Updated: March 23, 2012

Remember when draftniks said that Jamaal Anderson would be the best defensive player in the NFL within three years after he was drafted? Im sure Atlanta Falcon fans remember that. They probably wish his career went a little differently too.

Now, Anderson and fellow bust Derrick Harvey have been picked up by the Bengals. Here are the details:

The Bengals announced the signing of Derrick Harvey on Friday and they closed out the day by adding another former eighth overall pick in the draft.

Like Harvey, Jamaal Anderson is a defensive end and, like Harvey again, he hasn’t lived up to his lofty draft status.


For what it is worth, Marvin Lewis seems to have some kind of magic that gets those type of guys to “turn it on.”
