Broncos Use Low RFA Tender On C.J. Anderson

1:42pm: The Broncos have officially assigned the low-end RFA tender to Anderson, giving them the right of first refusal, tweets Jhabvala.

10:45am: The Broncos will use a low-round tender on restricted free agent running back C.J. Anderson, Nicki Jhabvala of The Denver Post tweets. The tender is worth $1.671MM in 2016. C.J. Anderson (vertical)

If you’re surprised that Anderson was given a low-round tender instead of a second-round tender, then you’re not alone. Anderson reacted on Twitter minutes ago and he appears to be disappointed with the news (sic):

Wow welp I’ve been here b4 jus keep grinding keep working 2 be the best 32-254-22,” Anderson wrote.

Anderson burst on the scene in 2014, with nearly 1,200 all-purpose yards (849 rushing, 324 receiving) and eight touchdowns in his first true taste of NFL playing time. In 2015, however, he took a step back and played a smaller role in Denver’s offense. In 15 games (5 starts), Anderson ran for 720 yards off of 152 carries, good for a still solid 4.7 yards per attempt. He also played a role in the passing attack, recording 25 catches for 183 yards.

      Patriots do have blount , if anything there are some other teams who have the space like the jags who have 80mm to pull cj in

        The Jags have Yeldon as their long term running back, they’re not going to give a big contract to a free agent just to be the backup.
