Broncos release running back CJ Anderson

Broncos release running back CJ Anderson

The Broncos signed Anderson as an undrafted free agent in 2013.

The Denver Broncos are releasing veteran running back C.J. Anderson, according to NFL Network insider Mike Garafolo.

Anderson, 27, played five seasons for the Broncos.

Anderson was informed before the start of offseason workouts Monday that he would be released, multiple outlets reported.

Anderson is coming off a career year with the Broncos as he finally got his chance to be the team's undisputed lead back.


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.

The Broncos have the No. 5 pick in next week's NFL Draft and might target Penn State running back Saquon Barkley.

The Broncos matched, paying him $6 million in 2016 and $3 million past year, but declined to give him his $4.5 million salary for this season and in 2019.

"Just focus on me", Anderson said. "I understand. I'm going into tomorrow, and the whole season thinking I can be traded at any time, at any moment. I'm going to use it as a motivation".
