New England Patriots chasing free agent wide receiver

The New England Patriots went after wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders last offseason and lost out, but they need to fill the position again and could be set to make another move for the Pittsburgh Steeler.

With another season passed, and another failure to reach the Super Bowl, the Patriots are likely going to look Sanders’ way again and the Steelers cutting the former SMU man could make acquiring him more easy this time around.

Pittsburgh is expected to let Sanders walk this offseason, and Mike Reiss from believes the Patriots will make a run after the 26 year old in free agency.

"Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette held his weekly Steelers chat and he doesn’t believe the team will re-sign receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who was signed to an offer sheet by the Patriots as a restricted free agent in 2013 before returning to Pittsburgh.

If the Patriots lose Julian Edelman, there’s little reason to think the Patriots wouldn’t show the same level of interest in Sanders again."

There are rumors that the Denver Broncos could go after Julian Edelman in the offseason, especially if the Broncos don't re-sign Eric Decker which could be a real possibility due to salary cap issues, and Denver could be looking the Patriots way again just a season after snatching Wes Welker from under Bill Belichick's nose.
