Broncos sign former Steelers WR Sanders
DENVER — The Denver Broncos gave Peyton Manning another receiving option, agreeing to a three-year contract with former Pittsburgh wideout Emmanuel Sanders.
Sanders, a third-round draft pick in 2010, had 161 catches for 2,030 yards and 11 touchdowns in four seasons with the Steelers. He started 10 games for Pittsburgh last season.
The Broncos lost Eric Decker to free agency and are looking for someone to compete with Andre Caldwell, the backup receiver who they re-signed to a two-year deal. Wes Welker and Demaryius Thomas are Denver’s two top threats at receiver.
