PITTSBURGH (KDKA) – A year after matching the Patriots one-year offer to then restricted free agent Emmanuel Sanders, the Steelers are losing their four-year wide receiver.
According to an NFL.com report, Sanders has agreed to terms to catch passes from Peyton Manning with the Denver Broncos. Sanders, 26, became an unrestricted free agent after enjoying his most productive season in Pittsburgh with 67 receptions, 740 yards and six touchdowns.
Sanders, a 2010 third round draft pick of the Steelers, will look to fill the void in the Denver passing attack left by Eric Decker, who agreed to a free agent deal with the New York Jets.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
