Football: From free agent to Pro Bowl pick

Former Cal running back C.J. Anderson, a second-year, former free agent signee with the Denver Broncos, has been selected as a replacement for Pittsburgh’s Le’Veon Bell in the Pro Bowl.

“It’s a chance to showcase my talent against the best and show I belong,” Anderson said.

Undrafted after his senior season at Cal in 2012, Anderson signed with the Broncos but hardly played in 2013. He got his chance this fall and responded by rushing for 849 yards and eight touchdown in barely half a season.
