According to Gerry Dulac of Pittsburgh’s Post Gazette, Emmanuel Sanders could be on his way out of Pittsburgh. In a Steeler’s chat with fans, Dulac stated the team will likely stick with what they have and draft a taller wide receiver.
Mike from PA: Hey Gerry, if the Steelers let Emmanuel Sanders walk in free agency, do you see Pittsburgh trying to sign a free agent (Jeremy Maclin, Sidney Rice, etc.) in the offseason or stick with the five they have (AB, Cotchery, Wheaton, Moye, and Justin Brown)?
Gerry Dulac: I think they will stick with what they have, plus draft a tall receiver in the first or second round. I think they will let Sanders leave in free agency for a number of reasons and are perfectly comfortable thinking Markus Wheaton will not only replace him, but also be a much better receiver. Their intent is to take a tall receiver early — they have already indicated that to Ben Roethlisberger — another indication that Sanders will be gone.
Sanders just fired his agent, I guess he thinks he will be receiving a pay day as well. Good luck Emmanuel, this is the deepest wide receiver class in year’s and there are quite a bit of free agent wide receivers.
