Bears cut Jamaal Anderson

The Chicago Bears have released former Atlanta Falcons first-round defensive end Jamaal Anderson, according to ESPN.

Anderson is a former first-round bust.

The Bears are expected to officially sign third quarterback Jordan Palmer as soon as today.

Anderson was drafted eighth overall out of Arkansas in the 2007 NFL draft.

He was recently cut by the Cincinnati Bengals and had a quadriceps injury last season.

He played in only two games.

Anderson has just 7 1/2 career sacks.
