Emmanuel Sanders wants a new contract, that’s no secret. But the Broncos’ explosive receiver is performing at top-level and not holding anything back so far in training camp. Monday was his best day yet, he seemed to be on the back-end of nearly every touchdown pass.
Sanders beat cornerback Bradley Roby during seven-on-seven drills on a fade route for six on a perfectly placed pass from quarterback Mark Sanchez. The next session he caught Trevor Siemian’s best ball of the day in the back of the end zone. He immediately got up and high-fived the crowd pumping them up.
The story said he's making a case for a big contract extension, but we did report a few weeks ago it may not come with the Broncos, according to a writer who follows the team. Sanders finished the season as the #19 receiver in PPR (#18 in standard), and enjoyed the 14th-most targets at his position. He didn’t have good quarterback play last year, but this season could be worse given the Broncos’ situation at the position.
