PITTSBURGH (93-7 THE FAN) — Emmanuel Sanders joined The Fan Morning Show Thursday live in studio.
He discussed the lockout and offered a look inside the “Young Money Family”, consisting of third-year wide receiver Mike Wallace, second-year Antonio Brown and Sanders.
Sanders said the offseason is going well, but very slow.
“In this lockout, man, I got too much time on my hands,” he said. “After a two-hour workout, it’s like what am I gonna do now? I’ve been talking to Ben, and he’s got me into playing some golf. So I’ve been golfing.”
With the free time, Sanders said quarterback Ben Roethlisberger got him into golfing.
“I consider myself a world class athlete, and I get out there and I see an 80-year-old guy drive the ball farther than me,” Sanders said.
But there is still football going on despite the lockout. Sanders said he got together with Roethlisberger and other offensive players three times so far, and hope to do it one more time.
Without head coach Mike Tomlin at the workouts, Sanders said Roethlisberger has been pretty much like a coach.
“(Roethlisberger) still treats me and Antonio like a rookie,” Sanders said. “(Roethlisberger) says we’re not done being a rookie until after the preseason. To get out there with the guys, though, it was just good. To be in the huddle with Ben, and understanding the plays and the concepts, that all ended up good.”
