Washington Commanders Sign Former Falcons Defensive End

 Headed to Washington.

The Washington Commanders have signed former Atlanta Falcons defensive end Abdullah Anderson.

Anderson joins the Commanders after spending the 2022 season with the Falcons, recording 40 total tackles, one sack and one pass defended across 16 total games.

He posted career highs in tackles and games played. 

Anderson will join an experienced Commanders defensive line, which includes players such as Daron Payne, Efe Obada, Jonathan Allen, Montez Sweat, Chase Young, James Smith-Williams, and Phidarian Mathis.

Anderson entered the league as an undrafted free agent, playing in a small role with the Chicago Bears, Minnesota Vikings, and the Packers before securing a larger role with the Falcons last season.

He'll look to build off his career season with Washington in 2023.
