Now that Emmanuel Sanders has hit 30 he has had to make some changes. For starters, the Broncos receiver has eliminated fast food from his diet.
“I was eating bad,’’ Sanders told Mike Klis of Denver’s 9NEWS while hosting his youth football camp. “If I was hungry I would sometimes go through the McDonald’s line and grab me a 20-piece [Chicken McNuggets]. I would go through Burger King, just fast food because I was ready to eat now.
“But now I’m listening to my body a lot more. There’s something about being able to understand your body. What you can put in your body that gives you a burst of energy, or what you put in your body that makes you go to sleep. That’s what I’m understanding more.’’
Sanders enters his eighth season energized, feeling like a rookie all over again — at least physically, the story said. He was quoted as saying he' has a better sense of direction, and is looking for between 1,200-1,300 yards this year.
