Less than 24 hours after declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft, BJ Anderson was arrested in downtown Nashville. Anderson was accused of public intoxication and biting two security guards. He bit one guard in the butt and another guard in the chest. According to The Tennessean, Anderson was booked into jail at 3:32 a.m. CST on Friday and was released nearly four hours later after posting bond.

Anderson spent six seasons donning the Black and Gold and started in three games in the 2023 season.
