(WIBW) -- NBC's Pro Football Talk reported on Sunday that the Kansas City Chiefs are bringing in former Denver Broncos running back CJ Anderson for a workout and physical "with the intent of signing him to a contract if he passes the exam."

The news follows the organization's release of running back Kareem Hunt on Friday after a video acquired by TMZ Sports showed Hunt in an altercation with a woman at a Cleveland hotel in February.

Anderson was cut by the Carolina Panthers in November after seeing little time in the team's first nine games and starting just one game.

He spent five years with Denver and rushed for more than 1,000 yards in 2017. He was cut by the Broncos in April.

In addition, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the Chiefs will be bringing in former running back Charcandrick West for a workout and physical on Monday, as well.

West spent four seasons with Kansas City and did not see any preseason action for the team after suffering a concussion in training camp. He was cut by the team on Aug. 22.

In 2015, West rushed for a team-high 634 yards with four touchdowns. That was the same season Jamaal Charles tore his ACL in a week five loss to the Chicago Bears.

West's workload then steadily declined, dropping from 88 carries in 2016 to 18 in 2017. Over his career, West has 999 rushing yards and seven touchdowns. He's also caught 75 passes for 552 yards and five touchdowns.
