In a rather odd move today, the Denver Broncos have released running back CJ Anderson. The Vallejo native and Cal alum is coming off a 1000-yard season for an otherwise terrible Broncos offense, which is why the move to release him seems so odd.
Anderson is a former Pro Bowler (2014) and is just 27 years old. He started every game for the Broncos in 2017, averaging 4.1 yards per carry putting up 1007 yards and 3 touchdowns on the ground with 28 catches for 224 yards and a touchdown through the air.
The 5-8, 224-pounder would add some additional competition to the backfield behind fellow Cal great, Marshawn Lynch. He would compete with a other mighty mites, Doug Martin, Jalen Richard, and DeAndre Washington as the team’s change-of-pace back.
Lynch and Martin are also a East Bay Area natives.
