The Super Bowl champion Broncos may soon lose yet another player.
C.J. Anderson, the Broncos’ top running back in their postseason run to the championship, is in Miami today visiting with the Dolphins, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Dolphins coach Adam Gase previously coached Anderson when Gase was offensive coordinator in Anderson, so they know how he fits in the Miami offense. It’s a pairing that makes a lot of sense, and it wouldn’t be surprising to see Anderson sign an offer sheet today.
Anderson is a restricted free agent, which means that if he signs, the Broncos have the right to match the offer. But because the Broncos tendered Anderson at the lowest level, they get no draft pick compensation if Anderson leaves.
The 25-year-old Anderson carried 152 times for 720 yards and five touchdowns in the regular season. He added 54 carries for 234 yards and two touchdowns in the postseason.
