Broncos Release Running Back CJ Anderson

Report: Broncos releasing RB CJ Anderson

Continuing an offseason makeover, the Broncos will release running back C.J. Anderson on Monday, per multiple National Football League sources.

The Broncos are widely expected to look for a running back at this month's draft. But they were looking for a trade instead of an outright release. With Denver likely unable to find another deal, they finally chose to cut him.

He rushed for 90 yards and a touchdown when the Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50.

Anderson returned from a knee injury to post a career-high 1,007 yards last season.

The Broncos signed Anderson as an undrafted free agent in 2013. Anderson rushed for a career-high 1,007 yards past year, but he'll have to go elsewhere to continue his forward momentum. He added 224 yards receiving on 28 catches with one TD. The third-year player is also far more affordable.

Although he rushed for 1,007 yards last season and is only 27 years old, Anderson was informed prior to the Broncos' offseason-opening team meeting this morning that he was getting let go. Miami now has veteran Frank Gore and Kenyan Drake in their backfield.
