So far it has been a disastrous off-season for the reigning Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos as they have seen a lot of talent walk out the door.
Following the retirement of quarterback Peyton Manning, stars like Brock Osweiler, Malik Jackson and Danny Trevathan all left on the first day of free agency.
One more on the way?
The Broncos are now on the verge of losing their starting runningback as the Miami Dolphins have reportedly signed C.J. Anderson to an offer sheet.

Reportedly in the region of a four year, $18 million offer, the Dolphins look determined to lock up their starting runningback position.
As a restricted free agent, the Broncos now have five days to match the Dolphins offer or we will see the Super Bowl champion make the move to Florida.
Anderson is clearly the Dolphins target to replace Lamar Miller who also left in free agency to join the Houston Texans.
Miller was a key part of the Dolphins offense and now with him gone, they will need an effective replacement if they are planning to contend in the AFC East next year.
Anderson isn't the only runningback who hit the free agency market from Denver this year as Ronnie Hillman also reached the open market.
The situation is quickly becoming dire in Denver with a lot of their top stars leaving and there are certainly plenty of questions for them to answer.
Elway's time to shine
It now falls onto the shoulders of Denver general manager John Elway to not only find the team a new starting quarterback but some more defensive stars.
With Manning and Osweiler both abandoning Denver, names like Robert Griffin III and Ryan Fitzpatrick are being liked with Mile High.
It is a big call for Denver who if they don't act soon, will be staring down the barrel of a serious situation.
