Veteran wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has agreed to a two-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, he told ESPN’s Josina Anderson and Ed Werder.
Sanders had appealing NFC options. He spoke with the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers but preferred to wind up with the Saints, where Sanders landed a $16 million deal worth up to $19 million, sources told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Sanders seems to be an ideal fit for the Saints, as he lines up frequently in the slot and quarterback Drew Brees thrives on accuracy with a heavy dose of short and midrange passes. Sanders is known as a terrific route runner, and he could help fill the type of role that former Saints wide receivers such as Lance Moore and Willie Snead IV held.
