The Denver Broncos have signed free agent wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

Sanders, 26, spent the last four seasons with the Pittsburgh Steelers and is coming off a career best season that saw him catch 67 passes for 740 yards and six touchdowns.

Those numbers figure to go up with the Broncos as he will be replacing Eric Decker as the No. 3 wide receiver. While Sanders is not the same receiver as Decker, it’s worth mentioning that last year Decker caught 87 passes for 1,288 yards and 11 touchdowns.

A bunch of teams were in on Sanders to include the Chiefs, 4ers, Jaguars and Jets. The Steelers had been hoping to bring him back as well.
