Pittsburgh Steelers restricted free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders has taken to his Facebook page to discuss his current situation with his fans following his Friday visit with the New England Patriots.
Sanders let his fans know that the Patriots are interested in him and that it\’s just that at this point.
“I have NOT been offered anything,” Sanders writes. “Balls out of my court. All I can do is continue to grind and trust the man above. He has the plan for me…”
Sanders does acknowledge, however, that he could be offered something from the Patriots in the coming days.
“I don\’t know what the Pats are going to do. If they do offer then I will have a HUGE decision to make. But that\’s not the case right now.”
It was erroneously reported on Friday by several media and blog sites that Sanders had received and signed an offer sheet from the Patriots. At this time he obviously hasn\’t signed anything, but that could change quickly following the Patriots releasing veteran wide receiver Brandon Lloyd on Saturday to avoid paying him his $3 million bonus that he was due.
