Agreed. Sanders is a quality receiver with a great attitude and work ethic. Bringing him back allows them to address other needs in the early rounds.

Hall of Famer
Keeping Sanders seems important. He knows the offense. Aside from a bad fumble on a sure TD, I don't remember him making bad plays. Must stay healthy tho.

As @JasonLaCanfora reported, Patriots have agreement with WR Michael Jenkins.
Looks like Sanders will stay here.

Awesome....this is excellent for the Steelers. This will give them the opportunity to build the WR corp behind AB & Manny just in case Manny leaves next offseason. This gives the team the opportunity to develop someone for at least a year before they could be thrown to the wolves. Plus having vets like Cotch and Plax will only benefit the young guys.

this signing may make it less likely that the Patriots* sign Sanders to an offer sheet...
