Jamal Anderson knows ... the Dirty Bird always gets the worm ... especially when the "worm" is a MILLION DOLLAR tax lien from the IRS.

According to documents obtained by TMZ, the former Atlanta Falcons running back didn't pay his federal income taxes in 2007 and 2008 ... and now Uncle Sam has placed a lien on his property.

Anderson -- who retired from the NFL in 2001 -- is on the hook for a total of $1,105,263.51 -- $478,247.57 from 2007 and $627,015.94 from 2008.

So where did Jamal's income come from? According to his official website, Jamal appeared on MTV's "Celebrity Rap Superstar" in 2007 ... and worked as an analyst for ESPN in 2008.

Calls to Anderson have not been returned.

Hey people it is not his fault he has taken too many shots to the head which lead to who knows how many concussions and he just couldn't remember to pay his tax bill. So The IRS should go after the NFL for there money and leave this poor defensless victim alone. How was he suppose to know that the NFL was such a violent game and may or may not have caused concussions.

I think this will be an easy lawsuit for the NFL to win how come not one of the Plaintiffs is going after pop warner football the Junior high school football High school football college football only the NFL hits cause concussions.
