Report: Dolphins sign RFA C.J. Anderson to four-year offer sheet
Thursday March 10th, 2016

The Miami Dolphins have signed restricted free-agent running back C.J. Anderson to aan offer sheet, the team announced Thursday. 

The deal is for four years and $18 million, reports Adam Schefter of ESPN. Because Anderson is a restricted free agent, the Broncos will have five days to match the offer.

The contract is structured to make it difficult for the Broncos to match, reports the Miami Herald’s Armando Salguero. 

The Dolphins are in the market for a running back after losing Lamar Miller to the Texans in free agency. The Broncos have already lost numerous members of their Super Bowl-winning team, including Peyton Manning, Brock Osweiler, Danny Trevathan and Malik Jackson.

Anderson played in 15 games last season, running the ball 152 times for 720 yards and five touchdowns. In 35 career games, Anderson has 338 carries for 1,607 yards and 13 scores.
