Denver Broncos: Top 15 acquisitions of the decade
Signed C.J. Anderson as an Undrafted Free Agent in 2013
By: Baylor Bradac
Running back CJ Anderson was picked up as an undrafted free agent out of California in 2013, which began his five-year tenure as a Denver Bronco. He only played in five games his rookie year, and only handled seven carries, but over the next four seasons, Anderson played 58 games, starting 36 of them. Anderson was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2014 with 1,173 yards from scrimmage.
Anderson was a huge part of the Broncos 2015 Super Bowl run. Denver was playing for the number one seed at home against the New England Patriots. Brock Oswieler had gotten the Broncos into overtime on a snowy Sunday Night. Anderson busted off a long run for a walk-off touchdown and allowing the Broncos to control their own seeding.
In 2017 Anderson started all 16 games for Denver, and had his first 1,000 yard season.
It was a solid five years for CJ Anderson in Denver from 2013 through 2017. He had 3,051 rushing yards on 693 attempts, 3910 yards from scrimmage, and 20 touchdowns for the Orange and Blue.
