There have been several reports on Twitter in the last hour that state Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has received an offer sheet from the New England Patriots.
Mark Kaboly of the Pittsburgh Tribune Review reports via Twitter that the Steelers have not be informed that Sanders has been presented an offer sheet by Patriots, let alone signed one. He also reports that the Patriots would have to notify the Steelers immediately when and if it happens.
Sanders is visiting the Patriots on Friday and very well could sign an offer sheet. At that time the Steelers would have a week to match it or receive a third-round draft pick from the Patriots as compensation.
