ESPN’s Adam Schefter has reported that the Denver Broncos will match the Miami Dolphins four-year, $18 million offer sheet and retain running back C.J. Anderson. The move comes as a bit of a surprise considering the ability of Gary Kubiak to develop seemingly average backfield talent into Pro Bowl caliber players. 

Bruton was a solid role player and high character contributor for the Broncos since he was drafted in the fourth round of the 2009 NFL draft. Troy Renck of the Denver Post has also reported veteran offensive tackle Ryan Harris, who started all 16 games for the Broncos in 2016, has agreed to a two-year, $3.9 million deal with the Pittsburgh Steelers. With the likely return of tackles Ryan Clady and Ty Sambrailo for the 2016 season, Harris’s value in Denver was viewed as minimal going forward.
