It has been almost one week now since it was first reported that Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders visited with the New England Patriots. Despite several national media and blog sites reporting that they had sources telling them that Sanders had received and signed an offer sheet, the Steelers third-round draft pick in the 2010 draft still hasn\’t received or signed anything as of Thursday morning.
Sanders hasn\’t updated his contract situation on his Facebook page since he denied the initial reports that said he had an offer sheet, but he did post a picture of himself with fellow Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and a few other wide receivers that are currently working out down in Miami.
Teams still have until a week before the draft to sign Sanders to an offer sheet. We have yet to hear about what the big move is that Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay claims to have up his sleeve, which many still believe could be the signing of Sanders to an offer sheet.
The Steelers are currently continuing on with their day-today business following the annual owners meetings out in Arizona and that includes making pro day visits prior to them starting to host draft hopefuls back in Pittsburgh.
As of right now, no news is good news if you are hoping for Sanders to remain in Pittsburgh. As always, we will keep you updated with any news concerning him should anything develop.
