Free-agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has agreed to a two-year deal with the New Orleans Saints, according to ESPN reporter Josina Anderson on Twitter. It's a $16 million deal that can be worth up to $19 million, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. (Josina Anderson on Twitter)
Sanders was traded from the Broncos to the 49ers last season and had been linked to the Cowboys early in free agency, but he lands with the Saints on a two-year deal. The veteran wideout caught 66 passes for 869 yards and five touchdowns last season, and this move should only increase his fantasy value despite his advancing age.
