The Dolphins are looking for some running back help after losing out on Lamar Miller, who went to the Houston Texans. Reports out of Miami are that the team has given C.J. Anderson a four-year offers sheet. Adam Gase was Anderson's offensive coordinator in 2013, so there is a nice connection there. The Broncos have five days to match the offer or Anderson will be a Dolphin and the Broncos will not receive any compensation.
