Anderson was set to make $4.8 million this season and will now become a free agent.
The Miami Dolphins figure to be interested in his services as he signed a four-year, $18 million offer sheet with Miami following the 2016 season before the Broncos matched the offer to keep him in Denver.
This move also opens the door for the Broncos to select a running back early in the draft, particularly Penn State's Saquon Barkley. Denver has the No. 5 overall pick.
Anderson recorded his first career 1,000-yard season in 2017, picking up 1,007 yards and three touchdowns on 245 carries.Back to the Denver Broncos Newsfeed
