Bears, Patriots want to bring in Anderson, too

C.J. Anderson


As restricted free agent running back C.J. Anderson visits the Dolphins, two other teams hope to bring him in for a sit-down, too.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the Bears and Patriots both want to entertain Anderson. According to the source, Anderson could be presented with an offer sheet from someone on Thursday.

Usually, the RFA market takes off after the unrestricted free agency market slows down. But with the Broncos applying the lowest tender to Anderson, giving them only a right to match and nothing more, and with several teams interested, Anderson will be the subject of a land rush that rarely happens with restricted free agents.

The end result could be an offer sheet that the Broncos simply won’t match, allowing Anderson to join his former offensive coordinator in Miami, his former head coach in Chicago, or a quarterback in New England whose praise has made Anderson one of the rare Broncos who doesn’t despise Tom Brady.
