4. Pay more for Anderson

Thanks to stepping up when the Los Angeles Rams needed him the most towards the end of last season along with the playoffs, C.J. Anderson is expected to cash in big time this offseason, whether it’s with the NFC champions or someone else.

More from Section 215

After bouncing around to a few different teams, the Rams originally brought Anderson on board as insurance to Todd Gurley, who was bothered by a knee injury, and missed the final two games of the regular season in 2018.

As Rams fans now know, Gurley’s knee injury was a bigger deal than originally expected, and while the team has already indicated their plans of taking a different approach with the star running back for 2019, this could mean that Anderson could return to help split carries.

However, since no offer appears to be on the table for Anderson at the moment, Los Angeles may be in a position where they realize Anderson’s asking price may be a little too high for their taste, meaning he could be available for Philadelphia or any other team in need of help at running back.

Similar to his situation with the Rams, Anderson would make for a great fit with the fact that he would be willing to share the workload with other running backs, showing how unselfish of a player he truly is.
