The way it stands right now, I would be willing to let Sanders go if that means getting the 3rd round pick and possibly using the rest of the money to try and get Bradshaw. Regardless of whether anybody would want Bradshaw, I would still favor the pick over a one year deal with Sanders. Let's say the Steelers match New England's offer to keep Sanders. One of the reasons why a lot of people would be willing to let Sanders go and take the pick is because of longevity. We would rather have a 3rd round pick that lasts 4 years than Sanders who would last one year. My question is, if Pittsburgh were to keep Sanders, would they then try to extend Sanders after next season? Or is that the whole point of what is happening right now? If they had intentions of signing Sanders to a long term deal why would they let this go so far to the point where theyre almost going to lose him?
P.S. I hate the Patriots. Nobody tries to manipulate the system and screw over more teams more than they do. All to hide the fact that they don't know how to draft wide receivers.
