Buffalo Bills Quarterback Derek Anderson Retires from NFL

Bills backup hangs up cleats after 14-year career



Derek Anderson

On Thursday evening, Buffalo Bills quarterback Derek Anderson informed the team that he has decided to retire. Anderson, 35, played for five different teams over a 14-year career. He made the Pro Bowl in 2007 as a member of the Cleveland Browns.

Anderson started for the Bills for two games in 2018 while Josh Allen was recovering from an arm injury. He started week nine against the Indianapolis Colts and week 8 against the New England Patriots and amassed for 465 yards, no touchdowns, and four interceptions.

Next up for the Bills will most likely be Matt Barkley, who started for the Bills in week 10 against the New York Jets. This also opens up the door for Tyree Jackson, former University of Buffalo quarterback who signed with the Bills as an undrafted free agent.
