The Denver Broncos have a young, talented group of wide receivers, so having a veteran like Emmanuel Sanders available is going to be vital for the franchise heading into 2019. Fortunately for them, Sanders is likely to return early in the season and this latest video of him shows some pretty quick footwork.
A little over a month ago, he posted a similar video of him making some cuts and catching the football. The difference between his foot speed in that video and this video is pretty stark. Hopefully he’ll have zero setbacks as he continues to rehab from the torn Achilles’ he suffered in early December.
Sanders is in the final year of his contract. The Broncos exercised their option on Sanders for 2019 and will pay him $10.15 million this year. For Sanders, coming back from this injury and having a big year would get him a pretty nice payday next offseason. So far so good on that front.
