Steelers unlikely to re-sign Emmanuel Sanders

Pittsburgh Post-Gazette - [Full Article]

Steelers beat writer Gerry Dulac on the possibility that WR Emmanuel Sanders leaves via free agency:

"I think they will stick with what they have, plus draft a tall receiver in the first or second round. I think they will let Sanders leave in free agency for a number of reasons and are perfectly comfortable thinking Markus Wheaton will not only replace him, but also be a much better receiver. Their intent is to take a tall receiver early -- they have already indicated that to Ben Roethlisberger -- another indication that Sanders will be gone."

Fantasy Impact: 

If the Steelers do replace Sanders with an early round draft pick, Wheaton will likely take over in the slot but may not be on the field in two-WR sets.
