The Denver Broncos are expected to release running back C.J. Anderson, multiple media outlets reported on Monday.
Anderson was informed of his release prior to a team meeting, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported.
The 27-year-old Anderson played just two seasons of the four-year, $18 million contract he signed in 2016. The Broncos will save $4.5 million on the salary cap by dismissing Anderson.
Anderson told Mike Klis of KUSA on Sunday that he planned to report to the Broncos' offseason workouts on Monday. He also said that he'd use the team's reported trade talks as motivation.
"Just focus on me," Anderson said. "Use it as motivation. But I'm going to focus on myself. I still have a job. Try to help my team win games. But at the end of the day, getting shopped around or rumors I was getting traded, I'm going to use it as motivation to show the organization I can still play at a high level."
