“Details soon,” Anderson told Schefter.
CJ Anderson played eight seasons in the NFL, won Super Bowl 50 with the Denver Broncos and was named to the Pro Bowl in 2014.
He had 3,497 career rushing yards with 22 touchdowns while playing for the Los Angeles Rams, Carolina Panthers and Detroit Lions.
In 2014 he achieved his best touchdown mark with eight in the season; his personal yardage record of 1007 in a year was in 2017, his last with Denver.
In 2019 he played just two games for the Detroit Lions and barely totaled 42 yards on 16 carries and no touchdowns; the player was released by the organization.
Without a team, the running back decided to leave professional football and focus on a new stage.
