|Drafted in the 3rd round of the 2010 draft, Sanders was the player expected to eventually take over in the starting lineup for Hines Ward. Injuries have derailed that plan and Antonio Brown, taken in the 6th round in 2010, has laid claim to the starting spot opposite Mike Wallace with Ward now retired. Sanders role in 2012 is yet to be determined as he will either battle Jerricho Cotchery for the 3rd receiver role or for a spot in the starting lineup if Mike Wallace doesn’t sign his restricted free agent tender. Of course, Wallace stands to lose close to $170,000 each week he misses so we expect he will report just prior to Week 1 at the latest. Look for Sanders to nail down the slot receiver role.

|The Denver Broncos have signed wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders to a three-year contract, the team announced.
Sanders' deal is worth $18 million, with $6 million guaranteed, the receiver said in a text to ESPN's Josina Anderson. (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: The Broncos would like Sanders to be able to play both in the slot and the outside receiver position. He'll replace Eric Decker and has WR2 upside in the Broncos offense. Sanders reportedly had agreed to terms with Chiefs but continued shopping his services, a tactic that is causing a stir among front office types around the league.
