Although he rushed for 1,007 yards last season and is only 27 years old, Anderson was informed prior to the Broncos’ offseason-opening team meeting this morning that he was getting let go.
He had two years at $4.5 million each year left on his contract but none of that money was guaranteed.
The Saints had five picks among the first 76 overall, and surely they should have gotten two or three good players out of that haul. But five—if Anzalone pans out?
That’s one of the best drafts in recent years. Deep down, the Niners can justify the Foster pick as swinging and missing for a potential franchise linebacker. But the lesson for Lynch now, with the recent spate of rap-sheet Niners, is he’s got to pick Eagle Scouts. This franchise has erred with risky players once too often, and for a while, they’re going to have to pick totally clean players.

When teams talk about players, they’re always looking for comparisons, and with Rosen, three names come up often: Jay Cutler, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady.
Is he a douchebag? Probably, but so is Aaron Rodgers and he’s done OK, said one scout.
And that’s a common thought from evaluators: Rodgers isn’t the easiest person to get along with, but he wins, so his teammates respect him and it works.
Said another scout, You’re telling me Tom Brady doesn’t care about the stock market or have interests off the field? As long as he’s willing to work, who cares?
That’s another positive for Rosen if he can, like Brady, compartmentalize and have his off-field interests but still be the first guy into the building every day.
