Summary

It took C.J. Anderson five seasons to surpass 180 carries and reach the 1,000 yard milestone in a season. His reward - he was released by the Broncos while the team looks to get younger in that area while saving money at the same time. One team's discard is another team's treasure, as so it seems with the Carolina Panthers who quickly signed him to a one-year deal in early May shortly after the NFL Draft concluded. Anderson is expected to fill the void left by Jonathan Stewart and earn upwards of 150-200 carries. Anderson is a much more athletic Mike Tolbert, who is capable of moving the pile, gaining yards after contact and making plays as a receiver. In addition to Christian McCaffrey, Anderson will be the team's primary ball carrier especially on short-yardage and goal line situations. Anderson has never had less than 4.0 yards per carry in his five seasons in the league and his career average is 4.4. Last year, the Panthers stable of running backs averaged 3.6 yards per carry. He's happy to be on a team that wants him, and the Panthers should be pleased with what he brings to the table. He's an adequate RB3 or RB4 who can provide decent production on a weekly basis with standout games any given week. (May 18)
