Anderson's time in Denver is done.

With Anderson gone, only Devontae Booker and De'Angelo Henderson remain on the Denver roster as recognized running backs.

The Broncos plan to release the running back, according to multiple reports. It is now heavily expected the Broncos will turn to the draft to add another running back to the group. The Broncos had reportedly tried to trade Anderson but made a decision to release him after multiple failed attempts. He signed a four-year contract in 2016, but the deal had no guaranteed money in the final two seasons of the deal, which meant the Broncos could release him without owing Anderson a cent.

"Just focus on me", Anderson said.

The Broncos signed Anderson as an undrafted free agent in 2013. Two years later, the Broncos chose to part ways with the running back.

The move comes on the heels of Anderson's best year of his career after he rushed for 1,007 yards last season, the first 1,000 yard season of his career.

Anderson was the team's leading rusher last season, totaling 1,007 yards with three touchdowns and also had 28 catches for 224 yards with a touchdown.
