New England Patriots Signings: Patriots Sign DE Anderson, Release DL Favorite

The New England Patriots swapped members of their defensive line on Friday afternoon, releasing defensive lineman Marlon Favorite and signing defensive end Mark Anderson.

Anderson spent the 2010 season with the Chicago Bears and Houston Texans. Finishing the season with the Texans, the five year veteran played in 11 games, starting two times. Anderson received several accolades during his rookie season with the Bears back in 2006, finishing second in Defensive Rookie of the Year voting, and being named to the All-Rookie Team.

Favorite hasn’t found himself a favorite of the eight teams he has been affiliated with so far in his NFL career. He has spent most of his two NFL seasons on a variety of practice squads, and joined the Patriots in early January of this year.
