Broncos releasing CJ Anderson

The Denver Broncos have released veteran running back C.J. Anderson, according to multiple reports.

Anderson is coming off the best season statistically in his career. He was the first running back to eclipse 1,000 yards in Denver since Knowshon Moreno.

This comes days before the National Football League draft on April 26. However, the Broncos are looking to go younger at the position, and the move saves them $4.5 million in cap space with no dead money.

Denver is releasing Anderson after a career year for the running back.

The Broncos signed Anderson as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He also added in 28 receptions for 224 receiving yards and four total touchdowns.

Cutting the 27-year-old back comes a day after he told Mike Klis of KUSA he planned to report to Denver's offseason workouts on Monday.

If Anderson is willing to come to the Dolphins on a team friendly deal, then Miami would indeed be an option. Miami now has veteran Frank Gore and Kenyan Drake in their backfield.
