The Baltimore Ravens had free agent defensive end, Mark Anderson, in for a visit on Tuesday, according to Jeff Zrebiec of The Baltimore Sun.

Anderson, 28, had 12.5 sacks for the New England Patriots in 2011, spanning both the regular season and postseason as a situational pass rusher and he’s currently the best pass rusher remaining on on the free agent market.

The Ravens have made pass rushing help a priority this offseason and Anderson would fill a big need after the team lost Cory Redding and Jarrett Johnson early in free agency. A seven-year veteran out of the University of Alabama, Anderson could give the Ravens a legitimate pass rusher opposite of Terrell Suggs, who finished with a career-high 14 sacks in 2011 despite being doubled and tripled-team in many games.

Anderson has reportedly drawn interest from the Miami Dolphins, Tennessee Titans and Jacksonville Jaguars, even though he started just one game for the Patriots last season.
