Denver Broncos players deserving of new contracts
WR Emmanuel Sanders
Age at free agency: 33
Emmanuel Sanders may not get a new contract from the Broncos, but that doesn’t mean he’s not deserving.
He’s been stellar since coming to Denver, helping the team win a Super Bowl in 2015 and providing the offense with really its main source of consistency in the years post-Peyton Manning.
Sanders has struggled with injuries the past two seasons, which will factor into the Broncos’ decision to offer him a new contract or not at the end of this year. He had an ankle injury in 2017 and an Achilles injury in 2018, causing him to miss some time and his absence was definitely felt.
The Broncos are bringing up some young receivers, so if Sanders is re-signed it might be year-to-year, but he’s definitely still got the juice and he’s a playmaker.
