Report: Patriots meet with Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders
|03.15.13 at 12:09 pm ET|
Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, a restricted free agent who would cost a third-round draft pick to sign, is visiting with the Patriots, according to a tweet from ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Sanders is due to make $1.3 million if he plays in Pittsburgh in 2013. The Steelers are having salary cap issues and might have issues matching a reasonable offer to the receiver.
Sanders, who turns 26 Sunday, caught 44 passes for 626 yards and one touchdown in 2012. In his three-year career, Sanders has 94 receptions for 1,290 yards and five TDs. He was a third-round pick in 2010 out of SMU.
