BRONCOS MATCH OFFER SHEET ON FOUR-YEAR CONTRACT FOR RB C.J. ANDERSON

The Denver Broncos on Tuesday matched the offer sheet on a four-year contract for restricted free-agent running back C.J. Anderson, Executive Vice President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway announced.

Anderson (5-8, 224 pounds) is a fourth-year player who has appeared in 35 regular-season games (13 starts) and five postseason contests (2 starts) since being signed by the club as a college free agent from the University of California.

During his career, Anderson has rushed 338 times for 1,607 yards (4.8 avg.) with 13 touchdowns to go along with 59 receptions for 507 yards (8.6 avg.) and two scores. In the playoffs, he owns 74 carries for 323 yards (4.4 avg.) with two touchdowns and 16 catches for 82 yards (5.1 avg.).

Anderson finished second on the Broncos with 720 rushing yards and five touchdowns during the 2015 regular season while adding 25 catches for 183 yards (8.6 avg.). Nearly half (347 yds.) of his total rushing output was gained after contact with his 2.3-yard average in those situations ranking fourth in the NFL according to STATS LLC (min. 150 att.).

He led all NFL backs with 234 rushing yards during the 2015 postseason, including 90 yards and a touchdown in Denver’s Super Bowl 50 win against the Carolina Panthers to represent the third-highest rushing total by an undrafted running back in Super Bowl history.

Taking over as Denver’s primary ball carrier midway through the 2014 season, Anderson led the Broncos with 1,173 yards from scrimmage (849 rushing, 324 receiving) that year to become just the fifth undrafted running back in NFL history to make the Pro Bowl. He added 10 total touchdowns (8 rushing, 2 receiving) to mark the most by an undrafted running back in team history. 

Anderson saw action in 25 games in two seasons during his collegiate career at California, totaling 1,135 rushing yards and 12 touchdowns on 198 carries (5.7 avg.) after transferring from Laney College.

A graduate of Bethel High School in Vallejo, Calif., Anderson was born on Feb. 10, 1991.
