And the Broncos will save every penny of that $4.5 million by cutting Anderson, per Spotrac.

According to multiple reports, the Broncos released Anderson on Monday morning.

Continuing an offseason makeover, the Broncos will release running back C.J. Anderson on Monday, per multiple National Football League sources. Anderson suggested he'd use the offseason of uncertainty to motivate him in 2018.

With Anderson out of the picture in Denver, the Broncos could be set to make incoming third-year back Devontae Booker their new workhorse in the backfield.

Anderson played just two seasons of the four-year, $18 million contract he signed in 2016.

The Broncos signed Anderson as an undrafted free agent in 2013. "I'm not saying they'll be back for sure, but I'm not going to say they are gone". The veteran running back broke the 1,000 rushing yard mark for the first time against the Kansas City Chiefs in December.

Anderson was the team's leading rusher last season, totaling 1,007 yards with three touchdowns and also had 28 catches for 224 yards with a touchdown.
