The Peyton Manning effect: Sanders in 'receiver heaven'

Published Add your comment

Peyton Manning is a massive draw for free agent wide-receivers, and that's exactly the influence he had over Emmanuel Sanders when he made his decision to become a Denver Broncos player for 2014.

Sanders was formerly with the Pittsburgh Steelers before he became a free agent, working with two-time Super Bowl champion Ben Roethlisberger, but combining with Manning will be a step up.

The Broncos made yet another big signing in free agency as they aim to recover from their heavy Super Bowl defeat in February.

Sanders will effectively be New York Jets-bound receiver Eric Decker ready made replacement, but the Broncos have already brought on board DeMarcus Ware, Aqib Talib and T.J. Ward.

All good moves, and Sanders as you can understand is delighted to be joining not just the Denver organisation, but the Manning receiving corp.

“To play with Peyton Manning is like wide receiver heaven," Sanders explained.

Sanders had the best season of his career in 2013 in his fourth year with the Steelers.

He caught 67 balls for 740 yards and six touchdowns, but he will be expected to go to the next level with the Broncos.
