C.J. Anderson signs offer sheet with Miami Dolphins

The 49ers were briefly connected to C.J. Anderson. It is no more.

The Miami Dolphins might have a replacement ready for running back Lamar Miller. C.J. Anderson has signed an offer sheet with Miami, which Ben Allbright is reporting to be a 4-year deal worth $18 million, with $10 million in guarantees.

The Denver Broncos placed the lowest tender on the restricted free agent, so they have five days to match the offer. If they do not match it, Anderson joins the Dolphins, and Denver gets no compensation. At this point, Anderson will either play for the Dolphins or Broncos in 2016.

The San Francisco 49ers were briefly connected to Anderson, with Matt Barrows and then Matt Maiocco reporting the team had interest. It sounds like Anderson went to Miami for a visit, and the team made sure he did not leave without an offer sheet.

The 49ers brought in Lance Dunbar for a visit on Thursday, and there is a decent chance the team could get him signed sooner rather than later. Dunbar could do some good things in the passing game. However, he also suffered an ACL tear early last season. I can't imagine he would be completely ready for the offseason workout program, but if he signed, he'd at least be able to take part in the classroom work.
