After playing collegiately at Auburn University, Anderson was selected in the first round (10th overall) of the 1996 NFL Draft. He is currently in the midst of an 96-game consecutive start streak, the longest by any Bengal. He was selected to represent the AFC in the 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006 Pro Bowls, although he missed the second game with a knee injury.
Prior to the 2006 season, the Bengals signed Anderson to a five-year contract extension worth $32 million.
