Steelers should remember Emmanuel Sanders when weighing decision on Maurkice Pouncey

After being selected in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft and making three pro-bowl appearances, it could be more beneficial to trade Maurkice Pouncey than attempt an extension. This time last year, the Steelers were pondering whether or not to accept a third round pick from the Patriots in place of Emmanuel Sanders (who would become an unrestricted free-agent just months later). The Patriots signed Sanders to an offer sheet in April of 2013, but Pittsburgh was set on retaining him. We all know how the story goes - Sanders walks at the end of the season, and the Steelers are left with...
Offensive strategy defined by letting Jerricho Cotchery walk

Offensive strategy defined by letting Jerricho Cotchery walk

Ben Roethlisberger is good enough of a quarterback to be able to re-distribute 10 touchdown passes, and the way this offense is now structured, adding the production of Cotchery as well as Emmanuel Sanders on the guys they have there is very do-able. Brass tacks, the Steelers don't exactly have a history of keeping three receivers. Even in this era of passing football, the Steelers will pay one receiver while developing a young one on the cheap. When their third receiver comes up for an extension, he's either allowed to sign elsewhere, or he's moved into the Paid Receiver role. Jerricho...

Chiefs move on after being spurned by WR Sanders

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Chiefs general manager John Dorsey said Tuesday the controversial signing of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders by AFC West-rival Denver has been “put to bed” and that he’s focused on what he can do during the rest of free agency and the draft. Sanders had visited the Chiefs last week and reports began to surface he had agreed to a contract. His agent, Steve Weinberg, said that was never the case, and that reports citing unnamed sources that claimed he was “shopping” the Chiefs’ offer to other teams were inaccurate. read more

The Emmanuel Sanders saga: It isn't any fun when the player has the power

Former Steelers receiver Emmanuel Sanders reportedly negotiated in bad faith with several teams this weekend, before agreeing to terms in Denver. Dirty tactics, for sure, but were those dirty tactics any worse than an NFL owner often forcing a player to take a pay cut on a contract he signed, years before? I guess the business in the NFL can be ugly on both sides. Regarding his reputation for instilling fear into many defenders who dared to try and tackle him, former Steelers legendary running back Jerome Bettis once said, "It ain't no fun when the rabbit gets the gun." I guess you can...
