Broncos to release running back CJ Anderson

Broncos to release running back CJ Anderson

Two years later, the Broncos chose to part ways with the running back. But they were looking for a trade instead of an outright release.

The 27-year-old became something of an out-of-nowhere success story in Denver, signing as an undrafted free agent out of Cal in 2013 and making the Pro Bowl the following season before starring in the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 win.

The Broncos apparently had an agreement all set to trade Anderson to the Miami Dolphins for offensive tackle Ja'Wuan James, but the Dolphins chose to pull out of the deal.

Anderson rushed for 767 yards in the final eight games that season and made the Pro Bowl. With Denver likely unable to find another deal, they finally made a decision to cut him.

In 2016, the Dolphins signed C.J. Anderson to a four-year, $18 million offer sheet before the Broncos made a decision to match it. He added 224 yards receiving on 28 catches with one TD. They could also target a new running back in the draft.

The Broncos began their offseason workout program on Monday morning and have only two running backs on the roster - Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson.
