Mike Klis of 9 News reports that the Broncos are expected to trade WR Emmanuel Sanders by the upcoming trade deadline.
Klis lists the Patriots, 49ers and Eagles as speculative teams that could use a receiver like Sanders.
Sanders is entering the final year of his deal and the Broncos are falling out of contention with a 2-5 record so far in 2019, which makes them likelier to deal Sanders if they can recoup a decent draft pick.
Schefter says he’s been told the Broncos are seeking to receive more than the fourth-round pick they traded away WR Demaryius Thomas for last season.
Schefter adds there are a number of teams expected to be interesting in adding a wide receiver before the October 29 trade deadline. He mentions the 49ers, Panthers, Patriots and Eagles, among others.
Sanders, 32, is a former third-round pick of the Steelers back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract before signing on with the Broncos back in 2014.
Sanders is entering the final year of his four-year, $38.6 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed and stands to make a base salary of $10.5 million for the 2019 season.
In 2019, Sanders has appeared in all seven games for the Broncos and caught 30 passes for 367 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
We’ll have more on Sanders as the news is available.
