    Really like CJ, but we could not pay him the contract he had.

    Good luck to him wherever he goes. He might be out of work for a bit this close to the draft.

    I'm surprised that he hasn't already signed for the Dolphins... they've been on his jock for a couple years now.

    No surprise that the Broncos will be drafting a running back in a couple of weeks.

    CJ said he was going to show up for workouts but wasn't expecting to be on the team... Denver's time ran out at that point.

    Remember the long run down the sideline in overtime to beat the Patriots on our way to the 1 seed and eventually a Super Bowl Trophy?

    CJ was not Terrell Davis, but I thoroughly enjoyed the body of his work. I'd shake his hand and ask politely for his autograph. He had some great plays! STand up guy.

    Ya gotta laugh at the Bronco fans upset at the front office for making this money... They don't get the cap portion of the business.

    I have not seen anyone upset with the front office about this move, but I understand the disappointment of letting a good player go. I liked CJ, but I understand that tough cuts need to be made.

    Some fans don't understand the business side of it.

    I think just like when we signed Talib we had a good feeling Anderson wasn't going to play out all 4 years of his contract when we matched the offer sheet Miami gave him two years ago which is really why we matched because we could release him after two years fairly easy.

    This is also why so many fans the second any player with name recognition gets talked about with coming to the Broncos. Heck Dez Bryant when he was cut I don't know how many Bronco fans I saw advocating for signing him.

    Sometimes good players have to get cut to keep things going. The teams that can't move on from players are doomed to find themselves in cap hell.

    Reminds me of that one guy that you always work with who thinks his team can or will sign anyone who becomes available.

    The NFL doesn't want loyalty, they want change, and teams to go from first to worst or worst to first.

    I would like to see the NFL give a home town discount for 1 player per year. Maybe something were you could sign a player and designate them as the face of the franchise player where you could have a percentage of the 1st year of the contract not count against the cap. This might help some teams keep their players, and put more emphasis on drafting well.
