Former Denver Broncos running back C.J. Anderson is drawing interest from the Bears, per multiple sources.

According to Mike Klis of KUSA, the Bears are in a “bidding war” with three other teams for Anderson’s services. The other teams reportedly are the Dolphins, Patriots, and 49ers.

Anderson is just another of many players who is familiar with head coach John Fox, who coached the Broncos from 2011-2014.

The Bears are in the market for a veteran running back to add to the mix after the team parted ways with Matt Forte — who signed with the Jets on the first day of free agency.

Anderson averaged 4.7 yards per carry and scored five touchdowns last year while splitting carries with Ronnie Hillman.
