Late Saturday night it was reported that the team and Sanders had come to an agreement, however that talkw as met with some controversy as the Kansas City Chiefs claimed that had reached something with him as well.
But, ultimately it’s the Broncos that win out for the former Steelers speedster’s services, and is a more than suitable replacement for Eric Decker, whom they lost during the Free Agency period to the New York Jets.
In 2013 for the Steelers, Sanders played in all 16 games as the team narrowly missed the playoffs where he recorded 67 catches for 740 yards and six touchdowns.
