Emmanuel Sanders says there was no deal with Chiefs


The contract negotiations from wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and his camp have generated plenty of discussion on Sunday as everyone attempts to figure out how he signed with the Denver Broncos.

Prior to joining the Broncos, there was a report that Sanders had agreed to a deal with the Kansas City Chiefs and that he blew off a meeting with the San Francisco 49ers.

It was a bizarre situation and unusual strategy for a free agent, but Sanders wanted to let everyone know how everything worked out to lead him to Denver. And as far as Sanders is concerned, he never agreed to sign with anyone other than the Broncos.

“That entire situation is a business ordeal that some people are turning into a personal matter,” Sanders said, via NFL.com. “Situations like that happen all the time over the National Football League.

“There was no handshake. There was no kind of agreement in terms of — you know — we were close to a deal, but it wasn’t anything official just yet.

While the negotiations may make Sanders look bad, everything will be worth it if he gets to a Super Bowl with the Broncos.

    Sanders is a LIAR! What else would he say? He is enemy #1 for the Chiefs D this season!

  • Travis Forsyth

    I don’t care what he says, the fact of the matter is that he spent two days in KC the only team he should’ve been in contact with was the chiefs. As for denver, they should’ve waited in line behind the 49ers…

    Josh, really love your new “Ends justify the means point of business ethics”. Sadly, far too many young people today have that point of view.

    Broncos said they didn’t know about the chiefs/Sanders agreement. Sanders said there was no agreement. Someone is lying. I would imagine if the Broncos called, their first question would be, ‘have you reached an agreement yet? Was the answer ‘no’, or ‘yes’ and the response was, ‘we can beat that’.
