According to Klis, other teams have expressed interest Anderson as well, and could get involved in the bidding over the next few days.
- Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk reports that the Patriots, Dolphins, 49ers, and Bears already have expressed interest in Anderson.
The interest is due in large part to the fact that the Broncos used just a low-round tender on Anderson in recent days.
The low-round tender will cost the Broncos $1,671,000 for the 2016 season and give them the right of first refusal on any contract offer they receive. However, if they elect to not match an offer sheet, Denver would not receive any compensation for him.
Anderson, 25, wound up signing on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of California back in 2013.
In 2015, Anderson ran for 720 yards on 152 carries (4.7 YPC) to go along with 25 receptions for 183 yards receiving and five total touchdowns. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 37 running back out of 69 qualifying players.
