Broncos To Release CJ Anderson

Broncos To Release CJ Anderson

Recently, there was a report by Troy Renck of ABC Denver 7, the Dolphins had a verbal agreement in place to trade right tackle Ja'Wuan James to the Broncos for running back C.J. Anderson - before nixing the deal.

Anderson's release finally ends months of speculation about his future in Denver. But they were looking for a trade instead of an outright release.

A popular veteran, Anderson was almost traded to Miami several weeks ago for a right tackle, but the Dolphins backed out at the last minute.

Most of those people ate salad at a restaurant; romaine lettuce was the common ingredient. Health officials warn the public to stay away from store-bought chopped romaine lettuce.

Anderson rushed for 767 yards in the final eight games that season and made the Pro Bowl. He should be able to find a new home relatively soon. He was instrumental in their Super Bowl 50 win over the Carolina Panthers in 2015 as he had 23 carries for 90 yards and a touchdown.

Anderson played just two seasons of the four-year, $18 million contract he signed in 2016.

The Broncos not only saved money by releasing Anderson, they opened up playing time for Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson. The third-year player is also far more affordable. If not, the Dolphins are content with Kenyan Drake, Frank Gore and possibly selecting a running back in next week's draft. Miami now has veteran Frank Gore and Kenyan Drake in their backfield.
