Emmanuel Sanders almost signed a deal with the Patriots this offseason

sandersWhen Emmanuel Sanders played for the Pittsburgh Steelers and became a restricted free agent, his agent Jordan Woy signed an offer sheet with the Patriots.  The Steelers eventually matched the sheet, but the Patriots remained interested in him. His new agent Steve Weinberg told Tom Curran that he was getting contacted by the Patriots again in March.

“Emmanuel loved it there,” current agent Steve Weinberg told CSN New England’s Tom Curran on Friday. “He said, ‘Give me Danny Amendola‘s deal and I’m there.'”

Amendola signed for $28.5 million over five years, with $10 million in guarantees. Sanders ended up in Denver for $18 million over three years, with just $6 million in guarantees.

“New England was competitive throughout the process,” Weinberg added. “Had they been aggressive from the beginning it would have gotten done, but, in this market, nobody knew what to do with the wide receivers.”
