Broncos Offseason: C.J. Anderson visiting Miami
The Denver Broncos are in the second day of free agency. And it comes with even more of a daunting twist as C.J. Anderson does have some teams interested.
The Denver Broncos have been pretty quiet so far this free agency. However, it has been less than 24 hours since it has begun, so no need to worry.
The Broncos have lost their quarterbacks. However, now it appears as if they could lose their running back as well. One who has worked so hard to get where he is at.
C.J. Anderson is heading to Miami to visit the Dolphins and Adam Gase according to Dan Graziano. This could be a significant blow to the Broncos offense.
However, there is no reason to panic just yet. With Anderson a RFA, the Dolphins would need to sign him to an offer sheet and the Broncos would have five days to match that sheet due to his tender.
The biggest takeaway I am looking at is the event before this story surfaced. And that is why Elway would give Anderson such a low tender offer. I believe that he has proven he can get the job done in the running game, especially the past two seasons.
However, if the Broncos are unable to match the deal, that puts them in a tricky situation. It could also have them turn to Ronnie Hillman to sign him. He is currently an unrestricted free agent and is shopping around.
This Anderson development could put the Broncos in a position where they could be without their two top quarterbacks and running backs from the 2015 season. That entire backfield could be full of new faces by the time training camp begins.
Hopefully Elway will be ready to match any offer that Anderson gets. If not, the offense could have a difficult time as they look to defend their Super Bowl title.
