Broncos Cut Running Back CJ Anderson

Broncos Cut Running Back CJ Anderson

Anderson's time in Denver is done.

Anderson was due $4.5M million in salary this season.

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

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

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.

As ESPN's Bill Barnwell noted, the path the Broncos took to get to this point with Anderson was rather interesting. But I'm going to focus on myself.

The 5-foot-8, 224-pound ball carrier is coming off a season in which he remained healthy, starting all 16 games for the Broncos in 2017 and rushing for 1,007 yards on 245 carries - all career highs.

With Anderson no longer on the team, Denver's running back room now consists of Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson, both of which combined for 312 rushing yards past year. He also had 859 yards receiving on 103 receptions and four touchdowns.
