Horse Tracks: Emmanuel Sanders first Broncos' player to make NFL's Top 100 list

New, comments

Emmanuel Sanders found his way into the NFL's Top 100 list at number 74. It's a list valued by players since it comes from player-only voting. Sanders is one of seven Denver Broncos players who are on the list, which is okay considering they are the Super Bowl champions with an historically good defense.

The Kansas City Chiefs have nine players on the list and more defensive players to boot. That should be all the motivation the Broncos' defense needs to tear through the league once more in 2016.

For Sanders, it shows how much respect he has earned around the league in his own right. He feasts off of Demaryius Thomas being the number one receiver and has really made the Broncos a better overall team, even with the quarterback struggles they suffered from last season.

I would expect him to be the only offensive player to make this list. Here's to him continuing to take people's cookies.
