The Chiefs need help at the tailback position, given the weekend release of Kareem Hunt. They could soon be adding C.J. Anderson.

Per a league source, the Chiefs will bring in Anderson for a physical, with the intent of signing him to a contract if he passes the exam.

The Chiefs know Anderson well. He spent five years with the Broncos in the AFC West. Cut in the offseason, Anderson signed with the Panthers. Released after nine games with the Panthers, Anderson has been waiting for his next chance.

Kansas City could use the help. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes led the team in rushing on Sunday at Oakland, with 52 yards. New starter Spencer Ware added 47 yards, with another 38 from Damien Williams.

  1. Hunt is a elite talent. Those in the peanut gallery trying to compare the Bell to Conner situation to Ware stepping in for Hunt….just plain nuts. And as a previous poster mentioned, Bell will have a bidder for his services this summer in KC. Book it.

  2. The chiefs are conservative when it comes to contracts. Tyreek is up for renewal before Mahomes II. They arent going out to get Bell, at least not for what he is demanding. Go Chiefs, Denver Donkeys are happily a crap team, only 3 games left with our true division rivals and were gonna miss the Oakland raiders who are gone forever in the next 13 months. Very sad to see the Afc west losing half the division to new cities building needless stadiums with public money.
    Go Chefs!

  3. There’s zero chance Bell lands with Chiefs. He gave up 14 million this year to land a contract he hopes is 17 or 18 mil per year for at least 3 years. There is no possibility that the Chiefs would pay him that…ever. Especially with a few guys like Ford, Hill, and Mahomes needing paid in the very near future.
