SALT LAKE CITY- Former Utah defensive end Bradlee Anae made a lot of noise Monday night against the Atlanta Falcons when he sacked, scooped, and scored against quarterback Feleipe Franks.

Anae started his NFL career with the Dallas Cowboys getting drafted in the 5th round of the 2020 Draft. In 2021 Anae was released by the Cowboys but resigned to the practice squad.

On January 19th of this year, Anae was picked up by the New York Jets on a reserve/future contract.

At Utah Anae was a force off the edge finishing his career with 30 sacks (a school record), 210 sack yards (another school record), 41.5 tackles for loss, 245 tackle for loss yards and six forced fumbles. Anae started 38 of the 47 games he played in.

Anae very well could have earned himself a spot on the Jets’ roster after chasing down Franks, sacking him, quickly recovering the ball and taking it 30 yards to the house. Anae also had two tackles in the game as well looking very much how he did in college.
