Anderson, Tide defense search for identity

TUSCALOOSA, AL (WAFF) - After having Tuesday off Alabama went back to work.

The reigning National Champions had their share of departures from a talented team a season ago. Now a number of new players will be called upon. For some of the older guys finding an identity is key this spring.

"You know, you could have all the pieces to a puzzle, that doesn't mean your gonna put it together," said veteran linebacker Ryan Anderson Wednesday. "So
I feel like everybody that came back  to work, to help the younger guys get better, to get back to where we just came from. You know we're starting all over. It's a whole new team, whole new unit, and try to find our identity."

Alabama returns to the practice fields Friday.
