Mike Kils who is a beat reporter for the Denver Broncos on Thursday reported the news that restricted free agent C J Anderson has signed an offer sheet of four years, $18 million dollars. The Broncos will have five days to match the offer from the Dolphins to retain the services of their running back who was an important player in Super Bowl 50 by scoring the final touchdown in the Broncos 24-10 win over the Carolina Panthers. Since Anderson was not tagged with a second round tender by the Broncos, the Dolphins will not have to give up any of their football players in the 2016 National Football League Draft to the Broncos as compensation for signing him to a four year deal. One reason that the Dolphins are interested in signing Anderson to a four year contract is that Adam Gase who is the current head coach of the football team was the offensive coordinator of the Broncos from 2013-2014. Gase will be working with one of his former football players if Anderson is able to sign his new contract with the Dolphins if the Broncos decide not to match the offer sheet from the Dolphins within five days. The Broncos have lost quarterback Peyton Manning to retirement and quarterback Brock Osweiler to the Houston Texans via free agency after their Super Bowl 50 win over the Carolina Panthers on February 7, 2016. The Broncos management will be second guessed by not applying the second round tender of Anderson since they would have received a second round draft choice from the Dolphins in the 2016 National Football League Draft. It remains to be seen if the Broncos want to retain Anderson on their roster within five days or find his replacement via free agency or the college football draft.

It will be hard for the Broncos to repeat as Super Bowl champions if their key players leave their team. John Elway will have a tough year in 2016. Many people are saying it is payback for refusing to play for the Baltimore Colts in 1983 when he was the first round draft choice.
