The New Orleans Saints announced that they have officially released WR Emmanuel Sanders on Tuesday.
Sanders, 33, is a former third-round pick of the Steelers back in 2010. He played out his rookie contract before signing a four-year, $38.6 million contract that included $20 million guaranteed with the Broncos back in 2014.
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 last year.
In 2020, Sanders appeared in 14 games for the Saints and caught 61 passes for 726 yards receiving and five touchdowns.
