Patriots, Dolphins, 49ers & Bears All Negotiating With Broncos RFA C.J. Anderson


Mike Klis of 9News reports that Patriots, Dolphins, 49ers, and Bears are all engaged in negotiations with Broncos restricted free agent RB C.J. Anderson.

According to Klis, other teams have expressed interest Anderson as well, and could get involved in the bidding over the next few days.


Tiffany Blackmon reports that the Broncos really want to re-sign restricted free agent RB C.J. Anderson and plan to do what they can to keep him in Denver.

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.


Mike Klis of 9News reports that the Broncos expected to use a low-round tender on restricted free agent RB C.J. Anderson.

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.

RBs get no love anymore. Even when they’re the only offensive player to get a TD in the last Super Bowl.
