Broncos have until Tuesday to match C.J. Anderson offer sheet

The Bills had until Wednesday to match the offer sheet signed by receiver Chris Hogan with the Patriots. They didn’t need that long to declare they won’t.

The Broncos have until Tuesday to match the offer sheet signed by running back C.J. Anderson with the Dolphins. It’s still not clear what the Broncos will do.

Common sense suggests that the Broncos will move on, given that with only a $2.5 million investment ($900,000 more than the tender the team offered), Denver could have locked him up by guaranteeing a second-round pick as compensation for grabbing him away. But maybe the Broncos simply wanted to let someone else negotiate Anderson’s multi-year deal, allowing them to now choose between paying him $18 million over four years or letting him go.

Whatever the thinking, the answer will be known in the next three days. Until then, the Broncos can use the uncertainty to explore their options with other running backs who are currently available in free agency. Or maybe coach Gary Kubiak will lobby for a trade that would bring Justin Forsett to Denver from Baltimore.

    Hoping he comes back, he really is a good all around back that runs hard and is perfect for this system. Let’s try to keep some stability on offense, having a new qb, rb, and a reshuffled line could be troublesome for beginning of next season.

    The dolphins should just draft ezekiel elliot or derrick henry and move on
    cheaper and younger

    I hope Denver match it- I’m not sure he’s worth the investment.

    He’s only going because of the money, they have no QB, they can’t make the playoffs and no one even goes to the games until the pats show up. Being a dolphins fan must be miserable, knowing the best two QB in the division play for the pats

    I think kubiak would bring FA Arian Foster before trading a pick for foresett

    Revren still must be butt hurt from week 17……or the 2nd half of the season.

    The Dolphins have split their series against the Patriots two years in a row, so I am not sure they are that bad. In fact they spoiled our Deflategate revenge tour when Suh twisted the ankle of our 38 year old about to turn 39 year old QB and we lost #1 playoffs seed.

    They will let Anderson go and sign Alfred Morris.

    The Dolphins could care less if they match the offer. Alfred Morris and Arian Foster are available for even less. We only need another RB to split carries with Ajayi. No way would they waste a pick on 1st Rd RB! They need LB, CB and G in that order.
    I really like the way the Dolphins handled FA this year. Let the overpriced go and picked up more Starters, Comp. Picks for 2017 and reduced the payroll for a healthy Cap. Super Bowl, probably not, but nothing says dumb by doing the same thing over and over again and having losing or mediocre seasons. The attention is off Miami, that is how I know this will be a better team.

    there have been no real standout RB’s in Denver for a looooong time…Anderson got the job done at times but the new QB will need a true workhorse type back…..then let the Defense gat them to the big dance again !!!

    Early mixed results stating they will and they wont. Also that they are looking at Alfred Morris and Arian Foster’s name got floated around.

    As a dolphins fan I don’t care which one comes either morris or Anderson

    I would have liked your post but when you mentioned the Dolphins needs, in order, I just couldn’t do it.

    The biggest need for the Miami Dolphins is at the GUARD position, period. Since this front office didn’t address this need in free agency I can see this team staying mediocre for years to come. They will be hiring another coach in three years if Tannenbaum keeps making stupid non-moves like these. What is so good about the moves he did make? He didn’t overpay players? You should take a harder look at the players he did decide to pay. I think Mario Williams is the only player who isn’t coming off some sort of injury, and most of the injuries these guys have/had were season ending ones.

    I’m not buying the Sunday Ticket again until Tannebaum is gone, Ross sells the team or all the above.

    I love the Miami Dolphins but no matter who is running the show they ALL makes the same moronic mistakes. The new definition of insanity is to do the same thing over and over again expecting a different result. The newer definition to insanity is – Being A Miami Dolphins Fan. Sorry, I have to log off and watch the movie, “Groundhog Day”, again, and again, and again……………….
