According to 9NEWS Denver's Mike Klis, running back C.J. Anderson is visiting the Miami Dolphins right now and is expected to sign an offer sheet with them.

The Broncos will have five days to match the offer the Miami Dolphins give Anderson. The amount and structure of the deal is not known at this time.

It's unknown whether the Broncos will match the offer, but I am skeptical. If they actually valued Anderson they would have placed a first or second round tender on him. This would have likely ensured that Anderson would stay in Denver and if anyone wanted they would have to give up a high draft pick. However, they decided to give him the low round tender and receive nothing in return.

It was a bit of a surprise that the Broncos placed a low-round tender on Anderson. He didn't lead the Broncos in rushing and was coming off a disappointing 2015 season but was big for the Broncos during the postseason and the Super Bowl.

With that said, Anderson has yet to put together for a full 16 games during his career and coming off a disappointing 2015 season. So the Broncos could decide to move on and start fresh at running back.

One name I will continue to push this offseason is Alabama's Derrick Henry. He is massive at 6'2, 247lbs with 4.5 speed and can run the ball 30 times a game if needed. This will be needed with the Broncos likely starting fresh at quarterback this season.
