Former Cal running back C.J. Anderson is headed to North Carolina.
According to Pro Football Talk, Anderson is signing with the Carolina Panthers.
The Cal product was released by the Broncos this offseason coming off a career year in Denver. Anderson rushed for a career-high 1,007 yards in 2017.
Anderson was an undrafted free agent signee by the Broncos in 2013. Denver was the only place he’s played in during his NFL career.
Anderson is now going to Charlotte where he could become the team’s starting running back in 2018. Former Stanford star Christian McCaffrey is listed No. 1 on Carolina’s running back depth chart but he’s more of a receiving threat. The Panthers were in need of a ball carrier who can run in between the tackles. Anderson should provide that.
Entering his sixth season, Anderson’s rushed for 3,051 yards and 20 touchdowns.
