Broncos' Emmanuel Sanders: Likely staying in Denver

The Broncos haven't asked Sanders (Achilles) to take a pay cut and are expected to keep him under contract for 2019, Tom Pelissero of NFL.com reports.

Sanders carries a $10.15 million base salary for the final season of his three-year contract, with $1.5 million becoming guaranteed at some point this offseason. It's a big expense for a player who will be nine months removed from an Achilles tear at the start of his age-32 season, but the Broncos apparently are confident Sanders can be a top target for new quarterback Joe Flacco. The veteran wide receiver seems to be making good progress in the early stages of his recovery and no longer requires a walking boot on his injured foot.
