Denver Broncos: Trying to replace Emmanuel Sanders
The trade of Emmanuel Sanders opens the door for a few Denver Broncos wide receivers to make an immediate impact on the field.
Emmanuel Sanders has been one of the biggest catalysts for the Denver Broncos offense in the last few years.
However, given the current state of the team, Denver needed to find a trade partner to give Sanders a change of scenery. They found the San Francisco 49ers as a match this week and dealt him to the Bay Area team. This now leaves Denver with questions regarding the wide receiver position and who’s ready to step up.
During the week, the Broncos made it known that wide receiver Tim Patrick will return from injury after the bye week (hopefully). That’s a great sign for a team needing to replace Sanders. It will be difficult for anyone to take the place of Sanders in the lineup. He had been one of the heartbeats of an offense that takes it to another level.
But because of a few losing seasons, the Broncos felt the best decision is to add future assets to the rebuild.
In this process of a rebuild are a few players who will try their best to make sure the offense does not skip a beat. Let’s get into a few candidates.
