matching NEs offer sheet was a mistake.
sanders will bolt next year for the money. we could have used the extra 3rd rounder for a TE or WR this year. wasting next years third for a 6 year backup qb was ignorant and will really hurt us next draft. our offense sucked last year with sanders and im sure a rookie or league vet minimum FA wr could put up sanders production.
i will change my tune if the steelers reach a very reasonable contract extension with sanders before the season starts
