Steelers match Sanders' offer sheet-- Sun Apr 14 6:00 pm --
Pittsburgh retains starting wideout
The Steelers, deciding they could not lose another veteran receiver, today matched the one-year, $2.5 million offer sheet Emmanuel Sanders signed with the New England Patriots five days ago.
That keeps Sanders for at least one more season in Pittsburgh, but he can leave as an unrestricted free agent next year if they do not come to a longer-term deal. (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette )
FF Today's Take:Sanders is currently penciled in as a starter opposite Antonio Brown but the Steelers may seek wide receiver help in the upcoming draft. The Patriots may also been in the wide receiver market at draft time as Danny Amendola, Donald Jones and Michael Jenkins are currently the projected top three wideouts.
