The running back cleared waivers on Monday making him a free agent.
On Saturday, Broncos VP John Elway said Ball was "in the top 53 in our mind," when explaining that the running back made it through final cuts.
Given Sunday's move it would appear that Ball was No. 52 or 53 on that final list.
As a former second-round pick, Ball never lived up to the hype, compiling 731 yards in two seasons in Denver. He played in just five contests in 2014 due to injury. Anderson, an undrafted free agent, showed much better flash, consistency and upside as a first-and-second-down back.
Even with his struggles, Ball should garner interest from some clubs. The Atlanta Falcons reportedly are interested in him, according to The Denver Post. He did average 4.7 yards per carry on 120 totes as a rookie. The 24-year-old ought to find a role in a running back committee. It just won't be in Denver.
