The Rams have added veteran depth at the running back position, signing C.J. Anderson on Tuesday.
Now in his sixth professional season out of Cal, Anderson rushed for 1,000 yards for the first time last year with Denver. The Broncos originally signed Anderson as an undrafted free agent back in 2013. While Anderson at one point signed an offer sheet as a restricted free agent with the Dolphins, the Broncos matched it, allowing Anderson to stay in Denver for the first five years of his career.
This season, Anderson has spent time with both the Panthers and Raiders. He began the regular season with Carolina, totaling 104 yards on 22 carries, also making a 24-yard reception. The Panthers cut Anderson on Nov. 18.
He then signed with the Raiders on Dec. 5, but Oakland waived him on Dec. 11.
Anderson joins a running backs room that’s been hit hard by injuries as of late. L.A. recently placed backup RB Malcolm Brown on injured reserve with a clavicle injury. But after Week 15, both Todd Gurley and Justin Davis are day-to-day with a knee and shoulder injury, respectively.
