Current Denver Broncos star receiver Emmanuel Sanders was once a Pittsburgh Steelers wide out back in the day.
He left for much greener pastures, and now that he’s completely over how he left the Steel City, he’s sharing an experience he had on his way out.
“The Steelers offered me a crappy deal. They offered me three years, $9 million, $1 million guaranteed,” Sanders said, during an appearance on 104.3 The Fan. “I’ll never forget when they offered me the deal, I declined the deal, I went into Kevin Colbert’s office and said, ‘I don’t want to take the deal.’ He looks at me and he goes, ‘Who do you think you are, Antonio Brown?’ I wanted to say, ‘F-you.’ I’ll never forget that.”
The Steelers offered him a deal that showed they didn’t really care about him.
Sanders has averaged 75 catches for 999 yards and five touchdowns over his five seasons with the Denver Broncos, with whom he signed a three-year, $15 million contract in 2014 and then a three-year, $33 million extension in 2016.
Everyone made out alright.
