There was some thought that the Denver Broncos could release veteran running back C.J. Anderson, but according to a new report that’s not in the cards right now.
Instead, per Mike Klis of 9News in Denver, the Broncos will keep Anderson but will listen to trade offers.

Anderson, a 27-year-old back who put up over 1,000 yards on the ground last year, is set to earn $4.5 million this year, with none of that money being guaranteed. Last season was his best as a professional.
And while Denver could potentially save money by cutting him it’s clear they’d much rather see if they can get something out of him instead, either in a trade of just letting him continue playing out his contract. That said, if they get no enticing offers in the weeks to come, there’s still a chance Anderson could get cut as Denver maneuvers to sign other players.
