Coming off a win in Super Bowl 50, the Broncos didn’t expect to lose both Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler this offseason. As if that was bad enough, C.J. Anderson could’ve been on the move as the Miami Dolphins offered the restricted free agent a 4 year deal worth $18M.
As you’d expect, the Broncos decided to match that offer, keeping Anderson in their backfield. However, the team is still in search of a QB – Mark Sanchez isn’t the ideal successor on a Super Bowl winning team.
Last season Anderson suffered from inconsistencies early in the season, but was solid down the final stretch on the road to the Super Bowl – I’m sure you remember his early TD in Super Bowl 50.
What’s next for Miami? I do like 2nd year Jay Ajayi out of Boise State who is currently a top 20 RB heading into next season – unless the Dolphins add a pair of legs to the backfield, which they likely will.
I can see them pursue a guy like Arian Foster. You know the front office doesn’t shy away from past prime veterans, as they proved with their signing of Mario Williams.
