    Steelers Sign 3rd Round Draft Pick WR Emmanuel Sanders

    Steelers Sign 3rd Round Draft Pick WR Emmanuel Sanders






    According to his Twitter account, Steelers wide receiver and 3rd round draft pick Emmanuel Sanders has signed and agreed to his rookie contract with the Steelers on Monday. Sanders was the 82nd overall pick of the 2010 NFL Draft out of SMU. The length of the contract is 3 years according to a response we got from Emmanuel himself to Steelers Depot. The deal is rumored to be totaled out at nearly 2 million dollars and include a $775,000 signing bonus. The base salary for the 3 years is: 2010: $320,000, 2011: $405,000 and 2012: $490,000.

    Not bad. 3rd rounders are now practically guaranteed $1M+.

    If you look at his numbers, he progressed each year and really ended his college career w/ a big year. A lot of times you see these guys have great jr. years and then have an average sr. year. He's seems to progress steadily.

    After losing Tone, we will probably need him to contribute faster than most would have hoped, but he looks to have tremendous upside.
