Sanders was entering the final year of his deal when the Broncos traded him midseason to the 49ers for a third and fourth-round pick. He made a base salary of $10.5 million for the 2019 season. 

The Saints signed Sanders to a two-year, contract worth $16 million this past March.

In 2020, Sanders has appeared in five games for the Saints and caught 26 passes for 304 yards receiving and two touchdowns.
