The New Orleans Saints make a free agent splash late Friday night agreeing to terms with former 49ers, Broncos and Steelers wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.
Sanders has 601 career catches, 42 touchdowns and 7,893 yards. He will be the most talented receiver to play opposite of all-pro wide out Michael Thomas.
The former third round pick out of SMU caught 11 passes for the more than 20-yards in 2019. He caught 66 passes for 869 yards and five touchdowns playing for both the Broncos and 49ers.
