NFL: Denver Broncos-OTA Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have a plethora of running backs at their disposal. C.J. Anderson spoke with Eric and Les about the upcoming season, his health, and how he feels heading into the 2017 season.

Anderson knows he has competition. He reflected on his injury during the offseason, and seems to have come to an understanding about how fleeting a NFL career is. Listening to him, it is easy to see how his maturity will be an asset to the Broncos.

He looks like he could be a leader on the offense. If Anderson can put together an injury-free season, he can be a major contributor. He is playing for his career in Denver this year. The barn is full of horses ready to run.

Hopefully, what this all points to is a stronger running attack for the Broncos. With Jamaal Charles, Devontae Booker, Stevan Ridley, and De’Angelo Henderson alongside, the Broncos look like a team with enough talent to run the football effectively.

For Anderson, that means he has to step up. He sounds like a man who knows what he has to do to be successful. The question will be, can he put his own words into action on the field?
