Broncos Cut Running Back CJ Anderson


The Denver Broncos have released running bank C.J. Anderson, the National Football League announced on Twitter Monday.

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

By releasing Anderson, the Broncos save $4.5 million in cap space this offseason. 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.

Anderson played just two seasons of the four-year, $18 million contract he signed in 2016. We'll look at that.

Kingdom Hearts 3 is in development for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One by Square Enix, and is set to launch at some point in 2018. Instead, this new trailer is nearly entirely centered around mini games you'll be able to play during your adventure.

The Broncos signed Anderson as an undrafted free agent in 2013. But I'm going to focus on myself.

Anderson rushed for 1,007 yards on 245 carries with three touchdowns. The veteran running back broke the 1,000 rushing yard mark for the first time against the Kansas City Chiefs in December.

He ran for 3,051 yards and 20 touchdowns in his 58-game career with the Broncos and was a Pro Bowl selection in 2014.
