Profile
Former star back of the Tampa Bay Bandits in the USFL who came to the Bucs in a big 1990 trade that was supposed to take Ray Perkins' team over the hump. Anderson was on the downside of his career after three years in the USFL and three in San Diego at that point, but showed bursts of his talent during his first two seasons in Tampa. By 1993 however, he was nothing more than a seriously-overpaid kick returner who couldn't even fulfill that role any longer and was released in Week 12. Played all three years in the USFL with the Bandits rushing for 2,731 yards and catching 167 passes in the process, also scoring more than 20 TDs in both the 1984 and 1985 seasons.
