Emmanuel Sanders

<span style="font-weight: bold"><span style="font-style: italic">..Patriots make offer to Steelers' Sanders
By The Sports Xchange</span>

The New England Patriots signed wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to an offer sheet, giving the Pittsburgh Steelers five days to match the contract to retain the restricted free agent.

According to multiple reports, the offer is for one year but the value of the contract is unknown. If the Steelers don't match the offer, they will receive a third-round pick as compensation.

The Steelers have minimal salary cap space, and matching any contract offer could be prohibitive. Pittsburgh would be left with only Antonio Brown among its top three wide receivers from 2012 if Sanders departs. Mike Wallace signed a $60 million contract with the Miami Dolphins in March.

With tight end Heath Miller returning from a torn ACL and other roster needs -- namely an aging defense -- the Steelers would be forced to bolster their receiving corps through the draft. Veterans Plaxico Burress and Jerricho Cotchery are under contract for 2013, but are not likely to be cast in leading roles.

Restocking that position in the draft hasn't been a problem for GM Kevin Colbert in recent years. Wallace (third round), Sanders (third round) and Brown (sixth round) were all chosen on what is now the third day of the draft.

Sanders visited the Patriots on March 15.

The diminutive slot receiver and return specialist caught 44 receptions for 626 yards (14.2-yard average) and one touchdown in 2012.</span>

Re: Emmanuel Sanders

See ya. Hasn't proved anything yet. The kid is fast but hasn't shown an ability to be a consistant wide out. I'd take the 3rd rounder and move on.

Where have you been?

Re: Emmanuel Sanders

One of the worst off-seasons I can ever remember the Steelers having. I agree about Sanders though. He could be good some day but maybe they will find a better player in the 3rd round of the draft.

Re: Emmanuel Sanders

Guess Sanders is going to take Wes Welker's spot.

Re: Emmanuel Sanders

Yep if he stays healthy and plays 16 games the numbers will be there.

Re: Emmanuel Sanders

Steelers matched the offer..........I'm glad they did, I think Sanders has an awful lot of potential
