With the abrupt release of Kareem Hunt earlier this week due to a domestic violence incident hidden since February, the Kansas City Chiefs suddenly found themselves in need of another running back.

Enter former Denver Bronco, C.J. Anderson.

According to Mike Florio on Pro Football Talk:

Per a league source, the Chiefs will bring in Anderson for a physical, with the intent of signing him to a contract if he passes the exam.

After running for 1,007 yards in 2017, the Broncos released Anderson in April. C.J. was signed by the Carolina Panthers and appeared in the first 10-games of the 2018 season before being released. Anderson was an undrafted free agent coming out of Cal and played with Denver for 5 seasons. Even though he went to the Pro Bowl and won Super Bowl 50 with the Broncos, fans in Denver will never forget his touchdown run in the snow, in overtime, during week 12 of the 2015 season.
