After going nuts in the early wave of free agency by signing the likes of T.J. Ward, DeMarcus Ware and Aqib Talib, the Denver Broncos have answered the Patriots signing of Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner by inking a deal with former Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that while neither the team nor Sanders’ camp is speaking on the matter, a deal is expected to get hammered out soon.
Neither team nor player’s agent will confirm, but Broncos are expected to sign former Steelers WR Emmauel Sanders, per league sources.

The arms race their in with the New England Patriots is just getting ridiculous at this point. After adding top level free agent talent in Talib, Ware and Ward, the Broncos have now added a serious deep threat who not only answers the Patriots signing Revis and Browner, but also replaces Eric Decker as well.
After losing the Super Bowl, the Broncos are like a scorned lover going on a spending spree to fill the hole in their heart. If you thought they wanted to win a Super Bowl last year, we apparently haven’t seen anything yet.
