Denver Broncos release RB CJ Anderson

Denver Broncos release RB CJ Anderson

The Denver Broncos cut running back C.J. Anderson on Monday, opening up an interesting conversation about the Washington Redskins in the process. Anderson took the news well, saying he understood it was strictly a business decision.

In his five-year Broncos career, Anderson rushed for 3,051 yards on 693 carries (4.4 yards per attempt), and 20 touchdowns.

Going forward, where is a good landing spot for Anderson?

This officially signals a lack of interest in Anderson on the trade market, because the team planned to pursue that route before cutting him. Their running back depth chart is now fairly thin, and it would be reasonable to expect them to add a back during the draft next week.

Veteran Linebacker James Harrison Retires After 15 NFL Seasons
The Ravens were reportedly interested in Harrison, but he signed with the Patriots , causing an uproar in Pittsburgh. Harrison, who turns 40 next month, previously retired in 2014 after a one-year stint with the Cincinnatti Bengals.

Per Spotrac, Anderson was owed $9 million combined over the next two seasons but didn't come with any dead cap for the Broncos, making him a candidate for release. "I'm going to use it as a motivation".

John Elway, the Broncos' general manager, said: "Over the last five years, C.J. developed from an undrafted player into an important member of our team". "We appreciate all he did as a Bronco, especially during our Super Bowl season". Six of those games were in losses for the Broncos who ranked 12th in the league in yards per game. He also had 28 catches for 224 receiving yards.

The Denver Broncos seem to be shaking things up at Dove Valley.

With Anderson out of the picture in Denver, the Broncos could be set to make incoming third-year back Devontae Booker their new workhorse in the backfield.
