Looks like C.J. could be heading elsewhere.

According to the Denver Posts Nicki Jhabvala, running back C.J. Anderson is drawing interest from multiple teams.

This doesn't come as a huge surprise after the Denver Broncos placed the lowest restricted free agency tender on Anderson a few days back. This means that teams can offer Anderson a contract, but the Broncos are able to match any offer given to him.

If the Broncos match any offer, Anderson will be playing under that contract with the Broncos. If they let him walk, they will get no compensation in return for his services.

Since the Broncos obviously do not value Anderson highly, I would be shocked if they matched any offer given to him.

Anderson has been productive for the Broncos the past two seasons. He was coming off a very productive 2014 season for the Broncos and was expected to explode in 2015. Unfortunately that did not happen. Anderson totaled 720 yards rushing with 5 touchdowns.

During Anderson's career with the Broncos he has totaled 1,607 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns. He also has a career yards per carry average of 4.8.

Those stats right there are a reason why Anderson is drawing interest from multiple suitors.

Some teams that I could see showing interest in him are the Miami Dolphins, Chicago Bears, New England Patriots, Philadelphia Eagles, and the Oakland Raiders.
