Default Emmanuel Sanders to Visit the Patriots

Adam Schefter ‏@AdamSchefter

Steelers RFA WR Emmanuel Sanders visiting Patriots today. Pats could sign him to offer sheet that cap-strapped Steelers struggle to match.

If he goes to the Pats, WR just became a more pressing need than Safety.

Yes sir.

I still would like to keep sanders but without him we have brown, plax, and cotch. Wr would be a very big need.

This is very interesting given Sanders’ restricted status. Pittsburgh placed an low-round tender on him last week, which means New England would only have to give up a third-round pick to sign him away.
The Patriots could always use the “poison pill” approach to sign him away from Pittsburgh given that the Steelers have very little cap space to work with.
It’s hard to if this is anything more than the Pats just doing their due diligence.

Not sure if its correct just what I found

crap

we gave Sanders a $1.3M RFA tender last week - if he signs an offer sheet with the Pats and we didn't match it we'd get a 3rd rd pick...and they could easily throw together a contract with too big a cap hit for us to match

I know this is a childish and irrational way to look at it, but just the fact he would consider a team I hate so much, I say fuck him. Let him go.

But everything is still going to be alright and we are still SuperBowl contenders, right my rose-colored glasses-wearing friends?
