It seems probable that Anderson will have to wait until after the draft to sign with a team. Former Cowboys star Dez Bryant finds himself in the same boat as teams will have to reassess their needs after the weekend is through.
Anderson turned in his first career 1,000-yard season in 2017 after tearing a meniscus in 2016. However, with no guaranteed money remaining on his deal, the Broncos opted to save $4.5MM and go in a different direction.
We don’t know the identity of these eight teams yet, but one has to imagine that the Dolphins are among the clubs in the mix. Miami discussed a swap of right tackle Ja’Wuan James for Anderson earlier this offseason and he could give the Fins a formidable three-headed rushing attack if the price is right. It’s hard to see the Dolphins getting into a bidding war for Anderson, however, given that they already have Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore under contract and little cap room remaining.
Speculatively, teams like the Patriots, Texans, Giants, Redskins, Lions, Panthers, and Seahawks could also have interest in the 27-year-old.
