Why Emmanuel Sanders should be a priority free agent target for the Packers

Emmanuel Sanders became one of the rare players to play 17 games in a season last year, as he was traded from the Denver Broncos before their bye week and arrived with the San Francisco 49ers after their bye.

Sanders had another solid season, made even more impressive by his quick recovery from a torn Achilles, with 66 receptions for 869 yards and five touchdowns in total, and he’ll turn 33 just before free agency starts (March 17). He’s not a certified No. 1 wide receiver, as some others set to hit the market are (Amari Cooper, A.J. Green), but Sanders will get a multi-year deal somewhere.

Rumors of Sanders’ decline appear to be overstated, and he addressed the topic on Twitter this week.

The Green Bay Packers clearly need to find a No. 2 wide receiver this offseason, with a deep class of rookie wide receivers to pick from. But here’s why Sanders should be very high on their list of free agent targets.
