    Not so fast on Emmanuel Sanders to New England

    Emmanuel Sanders AP

    When we passed along the report from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette saying Emmanuel Sanders had signed an offer sheet with the Patriots, we noted that there was no information about the terms of Sanders’ offer sheet, and that no other media outlets had confirmed the report.

    According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, there’s a good reason for that: Sanders hasn’t actually signed an offer sheet with the Patriots.The Patriots are still considering whether to make an offer to Sanders, which would require them to give the Steelers their third-round draft pick if they didn’t match the offer and allowed Sanders to go.

    The Patriots have more cap space than the Steelers this season, so it wouldn’t be hard for New England to structure the contract in a way that makes for a big cap hit in 2013, which the Steelers would have a hard time matching. But if the Patriots add Sanders they’ll also lose their third-round draft pick. And they’ve already traded away their fourth-round pick for Aqib Talib, their fifth-round pick for Albert Haynesworth and their sixth-round pick for Chad Ochocinco.

    Right now, the Patriots are still considering whether they want to give up a third-round pick for Sanders.

    I really think they should consider this in their decision to give up a third rounder for Sanders...how many receivers are the Patriots going to draft in the third round that will be successful? Come to think of it, how many players at any position are the Patriots going to draft in the third round, going to be successful?

    I think this thought process should take Ernie Adams and Bill five seconds to conclude.

    It probably hinges on a Mallett trade. If they get Phil Taylor that eliminates the need to draft a DT and they can use their first two picks on DBs or maybe OL (depending on what happens with Vollmer) and then they can sign Sanders. If they don't trade Mallett, they keep the pick.

    Of course, I'm not Erika Leigh, so take it for what it's worth...

    i would do it. the chances of a 3rd round WR coming in a and contributing immediately are slim to non. he is a young player on the rise and with 4.41 speed. NE could always trade back from #29 and aquire more mid round picks.




    agreed, and the kid could be a pat for a long time, hes only like what, 26?

    word from bedard and curran is they are waiting for pitt to sign another player or two and make their ability to match even more difficult.

    The last time the Pats got a receiver after signing them from an offer sheet it worked out pretty well...Seems to me Sanders is a quick and fast kid that could probably play all the positions and has some good nfl film out there, and I think the best is yet to come for the kid (and I can't say that about Wallace)

     

    Also, BB hasn't had great success in the third round especially with WR, so that is something to think about.

     

    I wouldn't rule out drafting a WR as well, especially if they sign Talib, and maybe get Phil Taylor (?)

    amendola, sanders, lloyd, rookie, jones, (branch?)

    Makes sense.  BB is the master.   Jesus, he thinks of everything, doesn't he?

     

     



    Yes he does!

    Not playing with the media types leaves him more time to actually sit down and think about important complex stuff, while filtering out all the noise. People say he's a jerk. I say he is focused.

    Re: Not so fast on Emmanuel Sanders to New England

    I wonder if they could work out a deal with Pitt to trade Loyd for Sanders? Pitt must be short on WR right about now.
