As the offseason continues in the NFL deals are being worked out. One of those is between Emmanuel Sanders and the Denver Broncos. There has been much speculation earlier that Sanders as well as Brandon Marshall have been in discussions with the team.
According to Pro Football Rumors, Sanders and the Broncos have submitted their respective proposals. Brandon Marshall has already secured a deal with the team. Marshall has a four-year, $32 million dollar contract with a guarantee of $20 million. Many say that Sanders would likely be the next one to get an extension.
Sanders is popular among the Broncos fans so won’t be surprising if he will get an extension. His performance is also to be considered. He has made over 1,000 yards for two seasons, as noted by Fan Sided. He has also caught 255 passes and made 15 touchdowns with the team.
He is now on his final year on his current contract. However, the Broncos is approaching its current cap though there would be much for the 2017 season. That is where he is expected to work on to get a good bargain.
General manager and former Broncos quarterback John Elway said that the team would want to acquire Sanders, Marshall and Von Miller before the July 15 deadline. Sanders will likely get the next deal though there are still issues with regard to Miller. Currently negotiations have stalled with him to due to issues with the guaranteed money. With the recent news about Fletcher Cox getting the highest guaranteed money from the Philadelphia Eagles, some say that this might be used by Miller as leverage in his bargaining.
Just like Miller, Sanders hopes to stay on and retire as a Bronco. Mile High Report says that he is working on getting a four-year deal, with $12 million for each season. He might also go as high as $23 million in guaranteed money though that is not totally fixed yet. he has said he is hopeful that a deal would be reached with the Broncos.
