For much of his 10-year NFL career, Cincinnati Bengals right offense tackle Willie Anderson labored in relative obscurity, arguably the best performer on a miserable team, a Pro Bowl-caliber blocker who got little recognition despite having the respect of his peers.

But now that the Bengals have reversed fortunes under coach Marvin Lewis, winning the division title in 2005 and poised for perhaps an even better season in 2006, Anderson might have a difficult decision if he is to remain with an emerging powerhouse team and perhaps finish out his career with the only franchise for which he has ever played.
