The Denver Broncos have released running bank C.J. Anderson, the National Football League announced on Twitter Monday. Cutting the running back saves the Broncos $4.5 million on the salary cap.

Denver is releasing Anderson after a career year for the running back. He finished with just over 1,000 yards and three touchdowns in 2017 and is now arguably the most talented back on the open market.

Anderson signed a four-year, $18 million contract he signed in 2016 and was cut after attempts to trade him failed, NFL.com reports.

The Denver Broncos are releasing the sixth-year running back, per The Athletic's Nicki Jhabvala.

The Broncos tried to find a trade for Anderson throughout the offseason, even coming close to trading him to the Dolphins at one point. We'll look at that.

Anderson joined the team as an undrafted rookie out of California in 2013. But I'm going to focus on myself. Two years later, the Broncos made a decision to part ways with the running back. He also had 859 yards receiving on 103 receptions and four touchdowns.
