C.J. Anderson motivated to prove he still can “play this game at a high level”

C.J. Anderson has a chance to make $800,000 in incentives this season. He also has a chance to get a bigger deal next year with a big season.

The Panthers get a 1,000-yard back for an $800,000 million base salary and one who is motivated.

It’s a win-win.

I should be in my prime,” Anderson said, via Scott Fowler of the Charlotte Observer. “I think I have an opportunity to do something really special here. I asked for the one-year deal. I want to prove myself that I can still play this game at a high level.”

Anderson, 27, had his first career 1,000-yard season, rushing for 1,007 yards on 245 carries. The Broncos cut him in April to save $4.5 million against the cap.

“The 1,000 yards?” Anderson said. “That was just a start.”

The Panthers also have Christian McCaffrey and Cameron Artis-Payne, but Anderson will have a role.

  1. he has heart
    but never had breakaway speed
    and he is a great power back when he feels like it
    which only appeared in couple games over his career

  2. You guys literally pay some goof to say the panthers have Jonathan Stewart and an alleged editor let’s if slide right on through….one of the only teams if not THE only with a white guy at running back. This is u acceptable. This is beyond lazy. These people don’t even follow football. Half your readers would do so much better, this is a joke.

  4. Broncos Fan not sad about this. $800 million……..

    I used to serve Christian McCaffrey at the Pinery Country Club. I’m more excited for one of the best #87’s son to make a name vs. Anderson

  5. Sorry CJ, you won’t be taking touches away from McCaffrey. That dude is a stud and easy pro bowler in 18.

  6. The Panthers also have Jonathan Stewart and Cameron Artis-Payne, but Anderson will have a role.

    Yeah, they cut Stewart earlier this year. I thought this was a football website?
