Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio reports that the Denver Broncos are cutting the running back after a season in which the Vallejo, CA native broke the 1,000-yard plateau for the first time in his five-year career.

The move will free up $4.5 million in salary cap space.

Trading halted at Woolworths stores across Australia
SBS journalist Lydia Feng said she was shopping at a Woolworths in Balmain, in Sydney's inner west, when the registers went down. Shoppers began reporting on social media about 4.15pm that they'd been told an IT issue was affecting cash registers.

During the offseason, it became clear the team was willing to trade the fifth-year back, but after failing to do so doing so they made a decision to part ways with him. With Denver likely unable to find another deal, they finally made a decision to cut him. He took the spotlight during his second season as he rushed for 767 yards and eight touchdowns in the final eight games of the season.

Anderson was the team's leading rusher last season, totaling 1,007 yards with three touchdowns and also had 28 catches for 224 yards with a touchdown.

Denver is releasing Anderson after a career year for the running back. Their running back depth chart is now fairly thin, and it would be reasonable to expect them to add a back during the draft next week. Anderson suggested he'd use the offseason of uncertainty to motivate him in 2018. Miami now has veteran Frank Gore and Kenyan Drake in their backfield.
