The New England Patriots have signed veteran linebacker James Anderson, cutting wide receiver Mark Harrison.
Anderson, 30, has played for the Carolina Panthers and the Chicago Bears last season.
The 6-foot-2, 235-pounder originally entered the NFL as a third-round draft pick of Carolina out of Virginia Tech in 2006. He was released by Carolina last year and was signed by Chicago as a free agent.
Anderson has recorded 556 total tackles, 12 sacks, three interceptions, 23 passes defensed, five forced fumbles and eight fumble recoveries. Last season in Chicago, he started all 16 games and finished with 102 total tackles and four sacks.
Harrison, 23, was originally signed by the Patriots as a rookie free agent out of Rutgers. The 6-foot-3, 230-pounder spent the season on the reserve-non-football injury list.
