Broncos release running back C.J. Anderson

Posted Apr 16, 2018

The former undrafted free agent joined the Broncos in 2013.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. — C.J. Anderson, one of the Broncos’ most successful undrafted free-agent finds in recent years, has been released, the Broncos announced Monday.

“Over the last five years, C.J. developed from an undrafted player into an important member of our team,” President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway said. “We appreciate all he did as a Bronco, especially during our Super Bowl season, and thank him for his many contributions on and off the field.”

Anderson, who in 2017 became the Broncos’ first 1,000-yard rusher since 2013, provided plenty of highlights during his time in Denver.

He broke onto the scene in 2014 with his lone Pro Bowl selection, which was aided by plays like a 51-yard touchdown reception against the Raiders. Anderson scored a career-high 10 touchdowns that season.

Anderson's 48-yard overtime touchdown run against the Patriots in 2015 helped secure home-field advantage for the Broncos as they made a run to Super Bowl 50. He would score the Broncos' only offensive touchdown in that game, and in 2017 he added his sole 1,000-yard season.

The 27-year-old totaled 3,910 all-purpose yards during his five seasons in Denver, and he averaged 4.4 yards per carry.

Denver’s running back corps now consists of third-year running back Devontae Booker and second-year back De’Angelo Henderson.
