Lions Signing RB C.J. Anderson To One-Year Deal


Adam Schefter reports that the Lions are signing RB C.J. Anderson to a one-year contract on Monday. 

It was clear that Anderson wasn’t going to be back with the Rams, despite a solid showing for them towards the end of the season and into the playoffs. 

Detroit was opening to adding some more running back help to reduce Kerryon Johnson‘s workload this season and looks like Anderson proved to be their best option. 

Anderson, 27, wound up signing on with the Broncos as an undrafted free agent out of Cal back in 2013. He signed a four-year, $18 million contract that included $10 million guaranteed with the Dolphins as a restricted free agent during the 2016 offseason but the Broncos matched the deal.

The Broncos elected to release Anderson last offseason and he eventually agreed to a one-year contract with the Panthers. After a brief stint with the Raiders, Anderson signed on with the Rams in December. 

In 2018, Anderson appeared in 11 games and rushed for 403 yards on 67 carries (6 YPC) to go along with five receptions for 41 yards receiving and three touchdowns.
