4/16/2018 C.J. Anderson, Den, RB
A person familiar with the situation tells The Associated Press that running back C.J. Anderson has been released by the Denver Broncos.

Analysis: The move clears a combined $9 million off the books over the next two seasons for Denver and opens the way for Devontae Booker, DeAngelo Henderson or a pick in the upcoming draft to take over as the Broncos' featured back.
4/16/2018 Josh Gordon, Cle, WR
Gordon will make $790,000 next season after signing with the Browns as an exclusive rights free agent.

Analysis: Gordon returned to the Browns and played five games last season following an NFL suspension and a lengthy rehab stint. He led the league with 1,646 yards receiving in 2012 and was an All-Pro in 2013, but he's played just 10 games over the past four seasons. After being re-instated last season, Gordon caught 18 passes for 335 yards and one touchdown.
4/16/2018 James Harrison, NE, LB
Harrison announced on Instagram early Monday that he is stepping away from the game following a 15-year career. The five-time Pro Bowler and 2008 NFL Defensive Player of the Year who turns 40 next month, Harrison posted a collage of pictures of his two sons and noted he's "missed way too much for way too long ... and I'm done."

Analysis: Harrison played nearly his entire career with the Steelers and the 84.5 sacks he collected while wearing black-and-gold are a franchise record. He spent the 2013 season in Cincinnati and signed with New England late last season. This is the second time Harrison has called it quits. He retired briefly in September 2014 only to be lured back to the Steelers. He remained productive into his late 30s, registering at least five sacks from 2014-16.
