Buffalo Bills agree to terms with WR Emmanuel Sanders, per report

Matt Warren is Associate Director of NFL coverage for SB Nation and previously covered the Bills for Buffalo Rumblings for more than a decade.

The Buffalo Bills have agreed to terms with wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders according to Dan Fetes of 13 WHAM in Rochester.

Sanders turns 34 tomorrow but was successful for the New Orleans Saints and QB Drew Brees a year ago, starting five games and playing in 14. With 61 catches and 726 yards and five touchdowns, he averaged 11.9 yards per completion.

He is a two-time Pro Bowler who has played 11 seasons for four teams; the Pittsburgh Steelers, Denver Broncos, San Francisco 49ers, and Saints. The Buffalo Bills tried to sign Sanders a year ago but broke off talks when they traded for Stefon Diggs and they also tried to trade for him in 2019. Diggs went on to lead the league in receiving yards and receptions.

Sanders still hasn’t been officially released by the Saints, who have announced the move but not filed the paperwork. They will have to wait for that to happen to finish the deal.
