The Broncos finally kept a player who hit free agency. Running back C.J. Anderson will be staying in Denver after the team decided to match the offer sheet he signed with the Dolphins for 4-years/$18 million.

The Dolphins were in desperate need of a running back after losing Lamar Miller to the Houston Texans last week.

"Being low-tendered from the beginning, you just never know what is going on," Anderson said. If it was about the money, I would have went to Chicago because they actually offered more. It was more about me putting myself in the best situation system-wise. I know I can do it with [Broncos coach Gary] Kubiak and I knew I could do it over there with [Dolphins coach Adam] Gase."

The 25-year-old running back will now be the key cog in the backfield until the Broncos re-sign Ronnie Hillman to pair alongside him.

"I have to come in in phenomenal shape when I come into training camp.," Anderson said. "I have to play every play like it's my last."
